I couldn’t be more excited and delighted to share what I’m about to share with y’all.
Of course it’s gonna be something that thrills your taste buds. And So. Much. More.
But first, here’s a little teaser:
Riddle you go…
Question: What do omelet bakes, togetherness, and McDonald’s have in common?
Answer: See photo below.
This photo says it well. This is togetherness: people working together, side-by-side, helping families together at Ronald McDonald House Charities®, aka RMHC®. [Photo courtesy of our sweet friends!]
Families of children who are being treated for illness often have lengthy stays at Ronald McDonald House Charities®. Volunteers are a huge part of making it feel as homey as possible; the families rarely have a chance to take a much-needed break, so meals are especially meaningful to them.
Close friends of mine often share stories of their own extended stay there after their little son was diagnosed with cancer. As they put it, “We relied on those meals provided. They were a lifesaver and such a genuine reminder that people cared.”
I recently fist-bumped Ronald himself at the RMHC® half marathon. McDonald’s is clearly committed to this awesome cause. Countless runners, walkers, and skaters brave the fiery August heat to cheer each other on in support of this charity every year. It’s absolutely thrilling when we all make a difference together.
Every one of us can deeply touch the lives of sick children and their families. There are so many ways to get involved!
Every bit helps a lot.
Check out the many ways you, your family, and friends can help families together during this fall season of giving and thanksgiving.
Consider ways to donate together this holiday season. If you’re lucky enough to live near a location, look up their meals calendar and make it a family/friends serve date!
And THAT is finally where this Denver Omelet Bake comes in. It’s super easy to make and bake on site, and it’s a warm way to love on some pretty exhausted families.
Easy omelet, Togetherness, and Ronald McDonald House Charities®: Makes complete sense. 🙂Print
This Easy Denver Omelette Bake comes together quickly and results in a fluffy, tasty, satisfying morning meal! Perfect for weekends, holidays, and brunch for a crowd.
- 2 cups cooked ham, diced
- 3 TB olive oil
- 1 large red bell pepper, seeded and diced
- 1 large green bell pepper, seeded and diced
- 1 large onion, diced
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 16 large eggs
- 2/3 cup milk
- 2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
- Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
- Optional garnishes: sliced green onions and salsa
- Preheat oven to 350F with rack on lower middle position. Lightly grease a 9×13 glass or ceramic baking dish; set aside.
- Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat until hot. Add onions and saute for 2-3 minutes, until softened. Add red and green bell peppers, stirring until softened. Add 1 tsp kosher salt and 1/4 tsp black pepper. Add garlic powder and stir to combine. Turn heat off. Add diced ham to the mixture, stirring to combine. Evenly distribute mixture into the greased baking dish.
- In a large bowl, whisk eggs, milk, and cheese until combined well. Add 1 tsp kosher salt and 1/4 tsp black pepper, whisking to combine. Pour over ham mixture.
- Bake 45-50 minutes or just until center is cooked. Serve warm with green onions and salsa.
If you’re time-crunched, you can skip the skillet step and place raw diced veggies straight into baking dish with ham and seasonings; the dish will have more “texture” and a bit less caramelized onion flavor, but it will work in a jiffy!
