How to Cook Frozen Omelets

Updated April 17, 2017

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.

Tip

Sauté vegetables such as spinach and green peppers to add to your prepared omelette.
