Baked Oven Omelet

by Laura

This baked oven omelet is another fabulous recipe that comes from my mom. She has been making this for as long as I can remember. The great thing about it is you can make it the night before and have it already to go in the morning. It works great for Christmas morning. Spend time opening presents while this cooks in the oven. I also love it for Easter morning too.

I like to buy the sandwich bread that is in the shape of a square to make this. It makes it easier to make this dish. I also reserve the crust that you cut off of the bread and save it to make my mom’s sage dressing for a turkey. This recipe also is a great way to use up leftover ham. You make this in layers like lasagna. With this, it’s like the bread are your noodles.
