How to Cook Omelets in a Convection Oven

By Gail Marie

The traditional method of making an omelet--in a skillet--can be tricky to master. Instead, cook your omelets in your convection oven. Though it will take a bit longer than it would in the skillet, your omelet will be just as tasty. Think of it as a crust-less quiche. Follow the guidelines below for making a ham and cheese oven omelet, or find your own oven omelet recipe using the link provided and adjust the cooking temperature and time as suggested in Step 1.

Step 1

Preheat your convection oven to the desired temperature (about 325 degrees F). Remember that if you are following a recipe designed for a conventional oven, you must reduce the temperature by 25 degrees and the cooking time by roughly 25 percent in a convection oven.

Step 2

Whisk together eggs, milk, salt and pepper in a bowl; then stir in cheese and ham.

Step 3

Pour the mixture into an oven-proof skillet, cast-iron pan, glass pie dish, or casserole dish that has been greased lightly with butter or oil.

Step 4

Place the item in your convection oven, remove when cooked through (after roughly 30 minutes, depending on how many eggs are used), and enjoy!
