Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, or at least that’s how the saying goes. Starting the day right always makes me feel good. In today’s busy lifestyle based lives we lead having a delicious home made breakfast isn’t always easy but I have the perfect solution.
THE BAKED BREAKFAST OMLETTE
I’ve called it a breakfast omlette but don’t let this fool you. This recipe can be enjoyed for a light lunch of dinner too.
1/4 cup thickened cream (I used full fat)
Salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1/4 teaspoon garlic crushed
2 tablespoons grated parmesean
1 rasher bacon thinly sliced
3 mushrooms thinly sliced
1/4 red onion thinly sliced
1 handful crumbled feta cheese
Whisk your eggs and cream together in a jug and add parmesean cheese, salt and pepper and garlic. Whisk well.
Pour egg mixture into a baking dish lined with baking paper then layer with remaining ingredients. Ensure your ingredients are distributed evenly thinking about how you will cut the omlette to serve. You want a bit of everything in each slice.
Bake for approx 20 minutes in a preheated oven 200 degrees until egg is cooked and golden brown.
Top with more chopped parsley, a season of salt and pepper and some Parmesan if you like.
This recipe will serve 4-6 people (6 serves works out to be one slice each) and you could prepare all ingredients the night before by chopping the veggies and bacon and placing in a bowl then whisking the egg mixture together (leaving out the salt and pepper til the next day). Then all you have to do is assemble which takes all of 5 minutes at most. You could get dressed for work while it’s cooking or get the kids ready for school etc.
this is a really versatile recipe and a few other combo could be:
Mediterranean flavours by chopping red capsicum, mushroom, pitted olives, basil and onion along with the above cheeses
Roasted vegetable- if you have left over roasted vegetables from a roast dinner you could use these with some chives and parsley and above cheese or even add the roast meat from the night before and make it a versatile dinner, so good!
