 In this photo, it's obvious that I halved this recipe.

A useful recipe to feed a crowd! This omelet served with spicy, chunky salsa has a distinct Mexican flavor.  Spicy Salsa has been scientifically proven to raise the metabolism, as does drinking ice cold water!  In this photo, it's obvious that I halved this recipe.  I have company and made it for our company, but was running out of eggs, so halved the recipe.  This makes a tasty change of pace.  I added some fruit salad as our tropical fruits are a treat for our Canadian friends.  They cannot get over how inexpensive the tropical fruits are over here. However, North American-type fruits are more expensive over here than abroad.  Our strawberries are very small in comparison to what I was used to and I can no longer justify buying tons of apricots, peaches and cherries.  Apples are still cheap.

I will link to a few other breakfast casseroles below this recipe.  I find them useful if we are having to feed a crowd.  A breakfast casserole with a couple of sides like fried tomatoes and sausages goes a long way to making breakfast a lot easier.

You could use other fillings like a can of green chilies instead of the green onions.  You could use another cheese, if desired.  You could use Greek yogurt instead of sour cream.  You could replace some of the eggs with commercial egg whites.   There are about 3 tbsp in one large, beaten egg.

You can spice up this casserole by using black pepper, red pepper flakes or hot sauce.


12 eggs
2/3  cup sour cream (150 mL)
2 tbsp whipping cream (30 mL)
2 tbsp water (30 mL)
1 tsp salt (5 mL)
1/4  cup chopped green onions, OR (60 mL)
  canned jalapenos
1 cup Cheddar cheese (250 mL)
Salsa, optional


Preheat oven to 325°F (160°C). In blender, blend eggs, sour cream, whipping cream, water and salt. Liberally spray 9 x 13-inch (23 x 33 cm) glass baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.  Pour omelet mixture into baking dish.  Stir in green onions, OR jalapenos.  Sprinkle Cheddar cheese overall.  Bake 30 minutes, or until set.  Serve with salsa, if desired.
