Oven Omelet

I made this with my housemade chorizo from Salt in Regina. I had no idea it would turn out so colourfully. This is another great brunch idea because the entire recipe can be whipped up the night before and refrigerated. Pop into a preheated oven in the morning. I made a half recipe and used a nice serving casserole dish so it is table ready.
Basic Oven Omelet
Serves 6
10 large eggs
2 cups milk
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup diced cooked ham
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
1 teaspoon salt
Freshly ground black pepper
1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Lightly grease a 9x13-inch baking dish with olive oil or nonstick cooking spray.
2. Beat the eggs in a large bowl and whisk in the milk. Stir in the cheese, diced ham, and parsley. Season with the salt and pepper and pour into the prepared pan. (At this point the casserole can be covered and refrigerated for up to 24 hours.)
3. Bake for 45 minutes, or until the top is slightly golden and a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean. Let cool for 5 minutes before slicing. Serve hot.

  2. Love that color that chorizo brings to it!
