Ham and Cheese Omelet Roll

The Magnificent Omelet Roll

Well, you'll feel pretty magnificent when you do this.

It's EASY, I'm telling you, even the rolling part isn't scary, but it will look very gourmet when you're done!

4 oz cream cheese
3/4 cup milk
2 T Flour
1/4 tsp salt
12 eggs
2 T Dijon mustard
2 1/4 cups cheddar cheese, divided
2 cups finely chopped, fully cooked ham or other
1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions, mushrooms, green peppers or any veggie you want
I stay pretty boring with the picky eaters around me.

Line the bottom and sides of a greased jelly roll baking pan with parchment paper. Grease the paper and set aside. In a small mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and milk until smooth. Add flour and salt; mix. In a large mixing bowl beat the eggs until blended. Add the cream cheese mixture and mix well. Pour into prepared pan; hold paper down with a clean hand and scrape (drag) across bottom and sides of paper with a spatula to be sure egg mixture and air bubbles are not underneath the paper. Bake at 375 for 30-35 minutes or until eggs are puffed and set.


Am I falling out of this chair???

Sorry for the crooked pic folks but this is how it looks when you put it in the oven

This is TWO batches - remember, I'm cooking in bulk now.

When the eggs are set, pull it out of the oven, spread with mustard and sprinkle 2 cups of cheese, ham, and onions.

To Roll: get a hold of the parchment paper, on a short side at one end with both hands. You roll the sucker up using the parchment paper to pull the egg up off the pan at first, then help it roll onto itself with the use of the paper, rolling and tucking the eggs as tight as possible; and pulling the paper away at the same time. Trust me, it's HOT, so use the parchment paper to help you.
When it's all rolled up like so, sprinkle some more cheese on top and return to the oven for 3-4 minutes until the cheese is melted.


Then set the roll on a serving platter, cut in slices and serve!



In my case repeat with the other roll, wrap it up in tinfoil and freeze the sucker till next time you're in the mood for a beautiful egg dish :)
Feel free to add whatever it is you like on omelets instead of ham too. We like things fancy....but not too fancy.
