Baked herb omelette

    30 min

    This baked omelette is quick, easy and a great summer dish. Scamorza cheese is an Italian cheese similar to mozzarella, that's harder and has more flavour. You can use mozzarella or a semi-hard cheese instead.

    I made this tonight with fresh eggs from a friend's hens and fresh herbs from my garden. I followed the recipe exactly, except for substituting mozzarella for the scamorza. It was the best thing I have eaten in a long time, and possibly the most delicious meal I have ever cooked. Light but filling, the eggs fluff up like a souffle, and the combination of the herbs is beautiful. It even smells fantastic. Many thanks for sharing this incredible recipe.  -  03 Aug 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Excellent recipe that I will make again. I didn't have any scamorza on hand, strangely enough, so I used a bag of grated mixed Italian cheeses and it was great. I also topped it with finely sliced sage leaves, since all the herbs were from my own garden and I had some lovely sage growing.  -  27 Jun 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I could not find Scamorza cheese so I substituted with Mozzarella. I left out the mint and honey, and added in some tomatoes, asparagus, and baby bella mushrooms! This was amazingly good, you can add whatever you like to this recipe! The fresh herbs make the dish!  -  23 Jul 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
