This Delicious Baked Western Omelet casserole dish was a family favorite when growing up. My dad made western omelets every Christmas morning for us.
I built upon his recipe and created this baked version. My family loved it so much that I wanted to share it with all of you!
This breakfast recipe is so versatile that you can easily substitute some of the ingredients to suit your tastes. Don't like bell peppers? Just don't add them. Love bacon? Go ahead and load it up. No matter what you add to this omelet it will be delicious!
One of my favorite variations of this recipe is to substitute the bell peppers with canned green chilies and Mexican Blended Cheese instead of the Cheddar Cheese.
As a kid, waking up knowing Santa has left me gifts but also knowing that my dad was going to make this awesome breakfast for us. It's funny how it's the little things like this you remember from your childhood.

🥓 How to Make Bacon
If you struggle to make bacon perfectly, I've put together a short tutorial on How to Make Perfect Bacon - 3 Ways. Check it out! My preferred method is baking it in the oven.
And don't throw away that bacon grease! Bacon is expensive and the grease is great for making Scrambled Eggs, Grilled Cheese, Popcorn and even hash browns. It can keep up to 3 months if properly stored in the refrigerator.
I suggest you try a side of my Sweet & Spicy Bacon to go along with these delicious waffles. For more great recipes like this one, I suggest you check these recipes out:

This baked omelet is ideal for brunch. Made it last week for company and it was a great hit. Very moist and delicious.
I have loved the recipe of baked omelet and wish to try it tonight. I want to replace bacon and instead wish to bake it with ghee. Baking with ghee is safer and i love ghee flavor too. What do you friends? any suggestion?

I plan to make this omelet for breakfast tomorrow and I’ve read it over, looks easy but it mentions sour cream in the ingredients but not in the method? What am I not understanding?
The sour cream is optional for serving. I have enhanced the recipe card to reflect this. Enjoy!
