These easy broiler omelettes are so hard to make. You need to be a super advanced chef to tackle making these. Just kidding! Dang, I’m so funny. Guys! This is my FAVORITE way to make omelettes. It’s quick, and easy, and for some reason it’s just fun.
These omelettes start out on the stovetop, then finish under the broiler in your oven. I love using my cast iron skillet to make the omelettes because it heats up fast, and the finished omelette slips right out without sticking. All broilers are not created equal. So be sure to keep a close eye on it while it’s broiling so you don’t cook it to death.
Omelette’s are the perfect blank canvas to customize to your tastes, or to what you have on hand. For this omelette, I just threw in a handful of sliced grape tomatoes and some spinach. Sometimes keeping things simple is just the best! You could add onions, scallions, grass fed cheese, broccoli, sweet potatoes – really anything!
It may take you a few tries to get the broiler method down, but once you’ve got it, you’ve got it. Start by heating your greased 8 inch cast iron skillet over medium low heat and turning your broiler on high. While it’s heating up, mix your eggs up in a separate bowl, and prepare your add-ins by getting them washed and chopped. Once your skillet is evenly heated, pour in your eggs, and then add in the tomatoes and spinach – or whatever else you feel like adding into your omelette. Once you see all the edges of the omelette cooked, move your skillet to the broiler to finish cooking for a few minutes.
