“Whenever I make an omelet, it flops when it should flip. Baking it in the oven removes that obstacle. You can add any sort of filling to this versatile recipe, and it can be used to feed a crowd.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 450°F.
  2. Mix eggs, milk, flour, salt and pepper until smooth.
  3. Pour half of the egg mixture into a greased 9x13-inch pan.
  4. Place cheese on top of egg (you can also add any other filling that you want). Pour the rest of the egg mixture over the filling.
  5. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until eggs begin to turn golden brown around the edges. Use a knife to loosen the omelet from the pan before slicing.
  6. If you want, sprinkle some additional cheese on top.
  7. Slice and serve.
  8. To save a step, combine most of the cheese with the egg mixture before pouring rather than putting them in the pan separately.
