Sausage Potato Omelet is healthy, easy, low-fat and high in protein! This oven baked omelet recipe has all the flavor and components of a full breakfast.
I seriously love how easy this ‘oven’ omelet is. Sausage Potato Omelet, proves that comfort can come in the form of an omelet and also be without cheese. And, believe me, I’m a cheese lover! But, I didn’t miss the cheese in this filling Sausage Potato Omelet.
Of course, if you could add cheese if you want. You can also replace the sausage with mushrooms and throw in a handful of spinach to bump the nutrients up even more!
I’m all about meatless, but the family isn’t. I used turkey sausage links. You can use pork or your favorite sausage.
Sausage Potato Omelet Tips
To be clear, I boiled the potatoes in a large pan. At the same time I cooked the sausage in the non-stick, saute’ pan pictured. I then added all the omelet ingredients to the pan and baked it. (It’s oven safe. Check your pan before cooking in the oven with it. Not all pan handles are oven-safe.)
All the meats need to be pre-cooked for an oven omelet or stove-top omelet.
Basically, an oven omelet and a frittata are the same thing. A frittata is pre-cooked stove-top and finished in the oven, whereas I baked my omelet from start to finish in the oven. They are both ‘egg pies’ and can be enjoyed hot or cold. Try eating a leftover slices between a biscuit or toasted bread!
I detest standing over the stove flipping omelets. You can clean the kitchen, set the table or blow-dry your hair (ahem) during the 18 to 20 minutes that this Sausage Potato Omelet takes to cook.
What I also love, if you’re one that loves breakfast for dinner, this is hearty and satisfying and won’t leave you hitting the fridge later for a midnight snack! It would also make a nice brunch recipe. Think… Mother’s Day!
Mother’s day. Me sleeping in. Me not cooking. Oh joy!
