Baked Omelette with Ham and Gruyere

Baked Omelette with Gruyere and Ham

My apologies strict Paleo people, this dish isn’t for you. I rarely post dairy recipes on here anymore, but this recipe always satisfies a hungry crowd, so I love making it when we have company. Per usual, I made this Christmas Eve morning when we celebrated with my husband’s parents and there only a tiny slice left over!

Luckily my little guy is still young enough to not understand the significance of Christmas morning and out-slept all of the adults by an entire hour. I was happy to have time to prepare breakfast in peace! We served this baked omelette with blueberry waffles, bacon, and some orange juice. He even waited for us all to finish our meal and cleanup the dishes before we began the gift exchange. I have an inkling this will be the last year of that!

    Thank you so much for the recipe! Made this tonight for dinner after a long day at the office. Added fresh spinach leaves and mushrooms. The store only had smoked gruyere, so I went with it. Absolutely fabulous.

    Thank you for your delicious recipe! Made it this morning. I used Trader Joe’s Cheddar and Gruyere cheese. I can see this being good with sausage and spinach, too, like Tricia mentioned. Nice and easy.

    Basically a crustless quiche. I love quiche. It is a Christmas morn tradition in my family too but I make them a lot for weekday breakfasts since you can bake it and then serve it cold all week. Hate having to drive to whole foods for GF crusts though. Never even though of doing it this way! Yum!

    Sounds like a good basic recipe that you could add your favorite veggies to. Surprised it only takes 35 minutes to set with that many eggs.

    The last photo looks as if there might be some kind of bread layered on the bottom. Is there? Or is it just how the cooked egg looks when it’s done?
