Spinach & Bacon Oven Omelette ~ A Recipe

Some mornings call for something special.  Not necessarily because it's a weekend, usually because we just need a lil extra love to start our day on a happy note.  This is our favorite omelette.  It's hardy, packed full of flavor, protein, and iron, and perfect for an early spring morning before you head out into the cold to plant trees, prune, start an early garden, or just run around town like a crazy person.  This is a great dish to bring to a brunch.  It can be assembled the night before so you can throw it in the oven as soon as you wake up.  Also?  The leftovers heat up beautifully.

Spinach & Bacon Oven Omelette
Prep time: 10 minutes, Bake time: 50 minutes, Serves 10-12

  1. Heat oven to 350ยบ.  Place butter in a 9x13 pan and stick in the oven to melt.  Meanwhile, beat eggs, creme fraiche, milk, cheese, onions, and salt.  Add bacon and mix briefly.
  2. Once the butter is melted in the pan, take it out of the oven and tilt it around to coat the bottom of the pan.  Place spinach in pan evenly.  Pour egg mixture over spinach.  Don't be alarmed if all the eggs go to the bottom; they'll puff up around the spinach as it bakes.  Return to oven and bake 50 minutes, or until slightly browned on the top.  Serve warm and grind some black pepper on top (optional).


  1. The creme fraiche is a nice touch. It would add such a nice flavor and texture. I totally agree with a special mid week breakfast!

  2. This sounds so good! I have never used creme fraiche but sounds worth a try :)

  3. Thank you for the recipe! Made this tonight and it was so good! Though I'm the only spinach eater usually, everyone loved it! I did use sour cream instead of creme fraiche.

  4. I just made your omelette and my son who hates vegetables ate two plates!!! This recipe is a keeper!! Thanks for sharing!!!
