By far one of my favorite foods is my grandpas famous “Nonno Omelette” casserole. If you did not know, Nonno means Grandpa in the province of Sicily that my family comes from. This omelette is always a go to for Christmas breakfast, Easter brunch, and just general family brunch gatherings, and the best part is, it is super easy and simple to make!
You really only need 3 ingredients to make it, but it is totally customizable too and you can add whatever topping you would like to it! My favorite toppings to add to it are a little bit of cheese, green chiles, ham, and bacon. You will see in the recipe below that the 3 ingredient ratio is 3:3:1 and then however much of the additional toppings you would like to include, but on this day I was only making it for Zach and I so I used 2 cups of milk, 2 eggs, and 2/3 cup Bisquick which was the perfect amount for 2 people.
First you will want to combine your pancake mix, we usually use Bisquick, but Krusteaz works fine too, then add the milk and eggs and stir.
Next add any or all of the following ingredients, or get creative and add your favorite omelette toppings that aren’t in this list: cheese, diced green chiles, sausage, bacon, ham, green onions, tomatoes. Make sure to chop any ingredients you use into smaller bits. Then combine the milk/egg mixture with your toppings.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Farneheit and pour the omelette mixture into a greased 9×13 mixture. Bake for about 40 minutes or until the casserole is no longer jiggly when you shake it. Yes, I know that sounds like an odd way to ensure it is cooked all the way, but trust me, it works. The outer edges will usually be a little bit crisp as well.
If you decide to half the recipe like I did you will only need about 15 – 25 minutes so be sure to keep an eye on it. This omelette goes great with fried potatoes or hash browns and fruit as well!
* 3 cups milk
* 3 eggs
* 1 cup Bisquick
*Diced Green Chiles
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease 9x13 pan.
2. Combine milk, eggs, and Bisquick.
3. Add your choice of optional toppings and stir.
4. Pour mixture into greased pan and bake for 40-45 minutes or until it does not jiggle
when the pan is shook. It should be slightly golden brown on the edges.
Serve with your choice of side, or by itself. Fried potatoes or hash browns and fruit
are my favorite side dishes to serve with this.
This is something that is usually only made for people in our family so if you try it out I would love to hear how you and your family/friends liked it! What toppings did you decide to add to yours? Enjoy!
