One-dish Camp Oven baked Omelette

Omelettes are a great quick and easy breakfast, brunch or simple dinner, and a great camping meal. However, you can only cook one at a time, so if you have a few people to cook for it can take some time and you don’t eat together.

Here’s a one-dish baked version that is fabulous when camping and is cooked in one dish in your camp oven or camp stove. It can be pretty well filled with anything you like.

Simple and quick cooking and everyone gets to eat at once.

One-Dish Camp Oven Baked Omelette

Preparation: 5 to 10 mins
Cooking Time: approx. 25 to 30 mins (depending on how deep your dish is)
Serves 4 to 6

8 large eggs
1/2 cup light cream (or make it up with half full cream milk and half pure/thick cream) (or just use cream)
½ to 1 cup shredded cheese (cheddar, tasty, whatever you prefer)
1 cup cooked ham - chopped
2 to 4 spring onions – finely chopped (or use chives)
1/2 x small/med onion – finely chopped (optional)
salt, pepper (seasoning to taste)

Preheat your oven, or camp oven. Temperate should be 200°C (400°F).

Grease a 20 to 23 cm (8 to 9-in) square/oblong baking dish or better still use a square/oblong, deep-sided foil tray. (Use a dish that fits inside your camp oven.)

In a large bowl, whisk the eggs and milk/cream.

Add the remaining ingredients and stir until well mixed.

Pour into the prepared baking dish and place in the hot oven or camp oven and bake for approx. 25 mins or until golden brown and cooked through.

If making it for an evening meal, you could serve it with a simple green salad and some fresh bread. Let it cool slightly before serving.

When baking in your camp oven make sure that you place a trivet in the bottom of the camp oven on which to place the baking dish.

Viv’s Hints: you can add whatever you want in your omelette, such as mushrooms, tomatoes, bacon, cooked sausage pieces, chopped green capsicum, spinach, fresh herbs of your choice and more.
It is worth the effort if you can take a bit more time and sauté the onion, bacon and vegetables in a little oil or butter until softened slightly before adding to the egg mixture. You’ll get a much better flavour.
