I recently purchased some Ramekins after watching a certain inspiring food show on a certain food TV network.
I was sold on the many uses of a Ramekin thanks to the show host baking something amazing and chocolate in one.
Make Some Baked Omelets for Breakfast
Do you own Ramekins?
For years I had ramekin bowls sitting in my cupboard. I only really used them to hold condiments and small snacks. I never used my ramekins for what they are most designed to be used as.
Ramekins are the perfect baking bowl for individual sized portions.
To be honest, I never knew there was actually a baking use for the ramekin until I saw it happening on a TV show.
I was watching a famous and popular TV personality, known for her delicious recipes, when I first got inspired to bake with my ramekins. She was making something chocolate, which is an idea that I am always good with. What I learned was that ramekins are the perfect dish, or bowl if you want, for creating individual sized baked goods.
After I witnessed this ramekin inspiration, I went online and ordered ramekins. I found that ramekins come in different sizes, colors, and even physical designs.
Baked omelets remind me of individual sized souffles.
I love that baked omelets in ramekins takes a chunk of the serving time out of the breakfast equation. You simply serve the ramekin with the baked omelet already in it. Everyone gets their own egg souffle.
What you put into your baked omelet is really up to you.
I like to experiment with adding different foods to my baked omelet. I am primarily a vegetable and cheese kind of person. You could also add some kind of meat to your baked omelet. You can even just top a plain egg omelet with cheese.
What you will need to make this oven baked omelet:
- Ramekin bowls/dishs- the amount or ramekins needed depends on the size of each of them. You could also use a casserole dish. Make sure that what ever you use is safe for oven baking.
- Eggs- 8-9 (depending on number and size of ramekins)
- Milk, milk alternative such as almond milk, or Greek Yogurt- 1 cup
- Shredded cheese- 1 cup. Can be cheddar, mozzarella, or your choice. Using 2 cheeses is also an option.
- Vegetables, such as onions, peppers, etc. Total 1/4 cup chopped.
- Seasonings, such as salt, to taste.
- Softened butter, nonstick spray or other to grease your ramekins.
How to make this:
- Preheat your oven to 350, prep your ramekins for nonstick.
- Place each ramekin on a flat baking sheet with sides. This will make it easier for you to work with multiple baking dishes. You can line this baking sheet with a silicon mat or parchment paper.
- In a small bowl, combine your chopped vegetables. Place equal amounts of the chopped vegetables in each ramekin.
- In a larger bowl, beat together your eggs, milk, and seasoning. Stir in your cheese.
- Pour equal amounts of this egg mixture into each ramekin.
- You can sprinkle additional cheese on top of each ramekin if desired.
- Bake for 20-25 minutes. If using one large casserole dish, baking times may differ.
