Baked broccoli, cheese and pepper omelette

Choose the right starter meal for any day, with this high protein baked broccoli, cheese and pepper omelette.

I have to admit, I love weekend mornings, time to have a nice relaxed breakfast at whatever time you fancy; even make it an early lunch if deciding to get really lazy.

I was in favor of something savory rather than sweet, something that I thought we will all enjoy so, I opened my fridge and gave it a little browsing around. I had some fresh broccoli, red pepper, some organic gammon that I knew of somewhere in the freezer, so I dug up and came out with few ingredients. Nothing too fancy but rather simple, nutritious and thoroughly enjoyable.

I love eggs and I can eat them everyday, I am sure many people share this unless allergic – they are such a lovely ingredient!

This is an easy breakfast so can be made any time during the week, while you dress up for work, breakfast is baking! Give it a try and you might even make it a good habit of having a nice high in protein breakfast which is just the right start for any day.

Here is this quick omelette recipe, let’s get it all started.

Cook Time
  1. Preheat the oven at 180 C.
  2. In a bowl break the eggs and beat for 30 seconds, add the egg whites, half of the grated cheese, milk, creme fraiche, salt (remember gammon adds salt to it), pepper and chili if you opt to put in.
  3. Place a pan over medium heat and shallow fry the gammon/bacon for 3 min.* (see recipe notes) Add the peppers and the broccoli. Cook for further 2 min.
  4. Add the omelette to the gammon and get the cooking of the omelette started. Cook for 3 min stirring occasionally. When it is half cooked transfer into the baking dish(es) sprinkle the remaining grated cheese. Bake for 8-10 min. **
  5. Take out and serve. Enjoy it!
Recipe Notes

* If you are using bacon start with adding some water to begin with. Bacon has its own fat and I never add oil but if you use gammon, this usually hasn't got much fat so feel free to add 1/2 tsp coconut oil or any oil you like.

** Pre cooking it on the stove is one option but the other option (especially if you do not have time to do all this) just mix all ingredients, pour in baking dish and place straight into the oven. This will need to be baked for around 18-25 min, all depending on the size of the dish(es).

The cheese can be easily replaced by a nice feta cheese (50-70 g) in which case I would add no more salt.

Other ingredients that you could play around with could be, chorizo, prawns, red onion, spring onion, asparagus, spinach, celery, butternut squash, potatoes, sweet potatoes, dill, dry herbs, cayenne pepper, kale, spring greens and many more.

I'll let you tell me what other ingredients I haven't thought about using...
