Tomato and Courgette Baked Omelette

With Daddy Hazelden working away in London during the week, I end up cooking the girls dinner in the afternoon and then find myself not wanting to cook again later on. So I have been trying to come up with some quick and easy meals for me to eat for on those days when I really can't be bothered. Omelette is something that is not only easy to make but it is versatile too because you can put whatever you want with it. This week I used tomato and courgette to make a scrummy baked omelette.


* 3 x medium eggs
* Knob of butter
* Handful of cherry tomatoes
* Half a courgette


* Crack the eggs in a bowl/jug and whisk them together.

* Cut the tomatoes and courgette into small chunks.

* Warm up the oven to 180 degrees.

* Heat up a frying pan and melt a kno of butter in it.

* Fry up the tomatoes and courgette for 3-4 minutes.

* Pour in the eggs, making sure to cover the tomatoes and courgette.

* Let the bottom of the omelette set and then place in the oven to cook for a further 5 - 10 minutes until golden brown on the top.

* The omelette should slide out of the pan with no need to flip it over. 

This recipe serves one/two peope depending on whether you serve it by itself or add in a side salad but it is easy enough to double/triple the recipe depending on how many people you want to make it for.

What are your favourite ingredients to put in an omelette??



  1. That looks like a delicious omelette! I love to put ham and chorizo in. x

    1. I love chorizo!! I put it with a lot of my meals :) x

  2. Doesn't the courgette make it a little watery? I often put leftovers in my omelette. I'll try this one too.

    1. No not at all, I think because I fried the courgette it had more of a crunch to it xx

  3. I love omelette and this one seems particularly delicious.

    1. It is one of those meals that you generally can't go wrong with :) xx

  4. I'm a massive omelette fan, and our 1 and 7 year olds love them too so I'm always on the lookout for omelette varieties, I never think of putting them in the oven too, what a great idea for browning them off.
