I’m a huge fan of quick, simple breakfast ideas, but I refuse to resort to boxed breakfast cereals and packaged foods.

I’m always on the lookout for tips and tricks (like my crockpot granolabaked oatmeal or oven bacon) to simplify and save time while still preparing a healthy meal to start our day. My family loves omelets but we just don’t have time to make them on a regular basis…enter this recipe for a simple, zesty oven omelet!

It’s one of my favorites…so easy to make and so simple to throw in whatever other ingredients you like! Bacon, mushrooms and other veggies, the possibilities are endless! We even divide it up and add different things to different portions to make each person their own personalized “omelet”. A cast iron skillet works beautifully for this.

Zesty Oven Omelet


½ cup salsa (homemade is best, but preservative-free store-bought works too!)
1 cup grated monterey jack cheese
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
6 large eggs
1 cup fresh, raw sour cream


Pour the salsa in the bottom of a medium sized cast iron skillet or 10 inch pie pan and spread it out evenly with a spatula.  Sprinkle the grated cheese (and any veggies or other ingredients you’d like to add) evenly over the salsa.

Put the eggs in a blender and blend until smooth. Add the sour cream and blend again until smooth. Pour the egg mixture over the cheese and salsa.

Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes or until a knife inserted near center comes out clean. Let it rest a few minutes, then cut into 6 wedges. Top each piece with some heated salsa and herb garnish, if desired.

  1. I have made this for my family before and it is really easy. When I have guests, I'll make it ahead and just stick it in the fridge before I have to bake it.

  2. I don't usually bake them, it sounds like a frittata. I love breakfast for dinner!

  3. I love trying new good recipes!
