One week, my kids asked for omelettes and I said yes, as I inwardly groaned. As I was preparing to stand over a hot pan for the next 30 minutes, I had an idea: why not bake them in the oven. Of course, there are expectations for the appearance of omelettes so dragging out my trusty parchment paper, I 'crafted' a method to make semi-circles just as if I was working at a diner.
You should have a high ridge through the middle of your pan. This acts as a separator for your eggs, also creating a lovely semi-circle shaped omelette.
I actually pour the egg mixture into each side, then add each person's preferred ingredients, gently mixing them. Figure out what works best for you but I figure the less dishes to clean, the better!
I bake all four omelettes at once, with everyone's order and I don't have to slave over a large frying pan. I guess there's also something to be said about the lower calories and all, but that just means I can add more cheese to mine.
