Two thumbs up for this Oven Baked Potato Cheese Omelette recipe! Serve it up as a side dish, gluten-free option, or appetizer. This Oven Baked Potato Cheese Omelette has under 10 minutes in prep time and bakes in under an hour. And it’s delish for lunch the next day (if there are leftovers)…
Oven Baked Potato Cheese Omelette
- 6 eggs
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1/2 bag frozen potato hash browns
- 1/2 cup to 1 cup grated cheese (depending on how cheesy you like it. I used grated Gruyere cheese but you could easily swap that out and substitute Cheddar cheese or Swiss cheese)
- salt & pepper (to taste)
- Preheat oven to 350c
- Combine 6 eggs in large bowl. Whisk to scramble.
- Add in 1/4 milk (2% if you have it). Mix together.
- Add in 1/2 bag of frozen potato hash browns. Stir to coat all of the potatoes.
- Grate 1/2 of the cheese and add it to the egg/potato mixture. Stir well.
- Add in a pinch of salt and pepper. Stir one last time.
- Spray pie plate with cooking spray.
- Put egg/potato/cheese mixture into pie plate.
- Sprinkle remaining grated cheese over top.
- Put in preheated 350 oven. Allow to cook for 50-60 minutes or until top becomes golden and the eggs are set.
- Serve warm or room temperature. Cut into “pie” slices.
Brunch, Potluck or dinner
This Oven Baked Potato Cheese Omelette is great for pot-lucks too. When we are in Spain, we make a potato/onion version of this omelette (which is called a “tortilla” in Spain). We put the omelette triangles between sliced baguettes and voila…hand-held beach lunch.
Here is the recipe for a Spanish Tortilla
In that recipe, you have to flip the tortilla on the stove top (honestly, a job I have trouble with these days…I have no grip strength). So if you are
weak clumsy unable (like me) to flip an omelette on the stove top — you can use the oven baking directions above for basically any strata/omelette which fits into a pie plate.*
*If you use a casserole dish or 9×13 pan — the baking time will change because it’s a different size pan. And you need more ingredients to fill a bigger dish. For these ingredients…stick with a pie plate.
