Spinach Oven Omelet

Spinach oven omelets are one of about three ways I use to get the dark leafy green veggie into my family without any complaint.  I like to serve it up as breakfast for dinner and keep the leftovers for a few early morning meals.

Do you make oven omelets?  What’s your favorite meat/cheese/veggie combo?

  1. I love oven omelets. Aren’t they the same thing as a fritatta?

    • I’m pretty sure they are the same or very close to the same thing. Do fritattas generally include potatoes? Did I read that somewhere? Well… potatoes could easily be added to this, too.

  2. Oh! I wonderful it my kids will eat spinach if I throw it in an omelet. This looks delightful. Wish I could have it this morning!

  3. Have you ever tried spinach in brownies? I’ve heard they’re really tasty, and you can’t tell there’s spinach in them. I haven’t tried it yet, but I will when spinach goes on sale one of these days!

  4. Any, do you subscribe to Kitchen Stewardship? Grain free breakfast stuff today! http://www.kitchenstewardship.com/2011/03/15/recipe-connection-two-grain-free-pancake-options-banana-and-almond-apple/

    • I do. Good to know! Trying hard to not put LOTS of time in the kitchen during Lent, simply because I need to put LOTS of time in the rest of my house and not focus so much on food. Trying to “keep it simple”. But yes, I may be desperate for variation in a couple of weeks!

  5. ooh, this looks delicious, I love flexible recipes and any recipe with bacon, I am going to have to give this a try sometime soon. Thanks for sharing!

    Do you think it would work with cheese too, or will the cheese burn in the oven?

  6. I love those “dump” dishes where you can use up the stuff in the frig:-)

  7. Oh Amy 🙁
    Sometimes I wonder if you post just so you can get a reaction outta of me…

  8. I don’t care for eggs all that much but this looks pretty tasty. I might try it on a smaller scale soon.

  9. I make something similar to this all the time. I have to admit that mine started because I didn’t like flipping the eggs and was concerned that the tops weren’t done enough which is why I popped it into the oven for a few minutes at the end. It makes the eggs very fluffly, though, which is wonderful!

  10. I started a few months ago making oven frittatas. The original recipe for asparagus and cheese frittata came in a Parenting magazine in an article about getting kids to eat more veggies and is made in a pie pan. The last time I used “al dente” sliced zucchini and yellow summer squash — yummo.

  11. Do you think frozen spinach would work?

  12. I make regular omelets, but have never done one in the oven. I’ve been trying to incorporate more vegetables in my menus, this sounds like a good one to try–kind of like a crustless quiche, which is good for the lower carb I try to incorporate into my own diet.

  13. I have almost this same recipe that I make, but I make a big batch, and bake it in muffin tins, with liners, then freeze. It makes a great grab-and-go breakfast. After 30 seconds or so in the microwave, of course.
