This Sheet Pan Omelet is filled with baby spinach, bacon and plenty of cheese along with green onion and sweet red bell pepper for added flavor. It's an efficient way to meal prep breakfast for the week or cook omelets for a crowd in one fell swoop.
Sheet Pan Omelet with Bacon and Spinach
I'm crazy about sheet pan meals. They're so handy for getting dinner on the table in a hurry and the easy one pan clean-up doesn't hurt. If you're someone who likes to meal prep for the week, this technique works like a charm and the omelets reheat beautifully in the microwave in just a few seconds. My favorite thing about it is; everyone gets to eat at the same time making it especially handy for holiday mornings.
Helpful Tips for Making Sheet Pan Omelet
A few pointers for making omelets in the oven:
- It's important to use a jelly roll pan with a rim to contain the omelet. A standard sheet pan won't work unless it has at least a one inch rim.
- The beauty of this omelet is, that you can very easily adapt the ingredients based on your family's preferences or what you have on hand.
- I used a combination of Monterey jack and cheddar cheese for this omelet, but again, you can switch it out using your favorite flavor.
- This recipe can be halved and baked in an 8 x 8 inch pan for a smaller batch.
- You can use ham, cooked sausage, Canadian bacon, chorizo or any other protein that you have on hand. It's a great way to use up leftover holiday ham and stretch it into another meal. You could also go meatless and load it up with vegetables instead.
- You can use egg whites in place of egg. Please note, the flavor will not be as rich, nor will it puff up quite as much due to the decreased volume.
- Serve this omelet with a side of fruit, on toast or a bagel for an omelet sandwich or as I did, on a freshly baked Fluffy Southern Buttermilk Biscuit.
