"30 Healthy Things to Cook and Eat" Oven Baked Omelet

Omelets are a big hit with the girls. We usually have them for dinner instead of breakfast. I am not too coherent in the morning so fluffy eggs are about all I can muster before 10AM. But a nice Oven Baked Omelet will turn any boring meal into 'brinner.' When I say brinner Audrey just laughs. I tried to explain, breakfast + dinner = brinner but, she is two three. 

Audrey gets to crack the eggs but these days she is not as thrilled with that task as she used to be. She even let me help Maurene do it last time. These days she is more interested in getting something, anything, out of the fridge. I let her get the eggs out. Yes, it was a little painful to watch but she she has to learn. This recipe is from our 30 Things to Cook and Eat set of cards.

PJs for Brinner 


  1. I love the concept behind this blog! Otto just turned 2 and he's started to help out in the kitchen pretty regularly (I am scouring Craigslist daily for a Kitchen Helper). I think he'd love to help w/ this recipe because he already likes picking out the eggs and stirring. I just need to learn to "let go" a little (a bit of a control freak) so that he can get his hands dirty and have fun.

  2. It is hard to let go! Start at a time when neither of you are hungry and just making something for fun. Then if you have a problem you will be comfortable with starting over. It really becomes fun for both of you very quickly!

  3. I love the main picture on your blog, and this sounds like fun! I understand. It is not easy to let my daughter "go" in the kitchen.

    Just letting you know, I have given you an award on my blog today. No need to follow all the rules, but just know that you have been recognized.


Audrey wants to hear from you!
