Oven Denver Omelet

I like omelets but don't always have time to stand by the stove. That's why I favor this oven-baked variety that I can quickly pop into the oven at a moment's notice. My family frequently requests this for Sunday brunch. They always empty the dish. —Ellen Bower, Taneytown, Maryland
  • Total Time
    Prep/Total Time: 30 min.
  • Makes
    6 servings


  • 8 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup half-and-half cream
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup finely chopped fully cooked ham
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped green pepper
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion


  • In a large bowl, whisk eggs and cream. Stir in the cheese, ham, green pepper and onion. Pour into a greased 9-in. square baking dish.
  • Bake at 400° for 25 minutes or until golden brown.

Test Kitchen Tips
  • Green pepper is typical in a Denver omelet, but red, yellow and orange peppers are just as good, and add lots of color.
  • This is an American-style omelet, puffed and golden brown. If you prefer yours more tender and less brown, try baking at a lower temperature, about 325 degrees, until a thermometer reads 160 degrees and eggs are set.

      LOve this dish! We make this at least once a month. We're a big breakfast-for-dinner family and this pleases everyone...and it's easy to throw together.

      This is so easy and so versatile. You can add any vegetables, any kinds of meat, or any kind of cheese. Thanks for sharing!

      This is very easy and tastes great. I used 6 eggs and 1/3 cup egg whites as that is what I had on-hand. The baking time and temperature were perfect. Served it with O'Brien hash browns last night for dinner.

      Really delicious and satisfying! Also very easy. I will add this into my meal rotation. I used milk instead of half and half because that is what I had on hand and also added some salt and pepper. We had this for dinner with hashbrowns, but I will also make it for breakfast and brunch.
