Between work and shuttling kids to school and their activities, families are substituting meals with breakfast bars or cold cereal. However if you want to make a hot meal such as eggs in the morning, utilising the microwave will save you a lot of time and energy. Several food companies offer frozen omelettes that only need to be reheated in the microwave. You can also cook and freeze your own omelettes on a day when you have time to make several, and reheat in the microwave or the oven for a quick, satisfying meal.
Preheat the oven to 162 degrees C.
Grease a small baking dish with butter.
Add the omelettes to the baking dish and cover with a sheet of aluminium foil.
Bake the omelettes for 11 to 14 minutes, until fully heated. The omelette needs to reach 60 degrees C to be safe to eat, so check with a food thermometer before serving.
Place the frozen omelettes on a microwave-safe plate
Cover the omelettes lightly with a paper towel.
Heat the omelettes on high for two to four minutes, until thoroughly heated. Serve hot.
