Thanks to the folks at ALDI for sponsoring this post about a unique Mother’s Day Omelet Bar. Since we have always lived away from our parents, Mother’s Day is usually a day that our family goes to church, we have a quick brunch at home, then continue our day with our kids sports activities.
It doesn’t feel much like a special day, especially when I am preparing the “brunch” after church. This year, I will be making an omelette bar so each person can take some responsibility and create their own omelet Most of the prep work can be done the night before so I might even be able to relax a little this Mother’s Day brunch.
HOW TO MAKE AN OMELETTE BAR
A few days before Mother’s Day, head to your grocery store and buy the ingredients and your family’s favorite omelet fillings like cheeses, meats, and veggies. With great everyday prices, this years mother’s day brunch won’t break the bank.
WHAT CAN I PREPARE THE DAY AHEAD OF BRUNCH?
The night before Mother’s Day, cook up the meats, blanch any veggies and shred any cheeses. Store the omelet bar ingredients in the bowls you plan on having out for your brunch and store in fridge.
HOW TO MAKE INDIVIDUAL OMELETS
When you get back from church, have the kids crack the eggs and beat up the omelet mixture while you preheat the oven and arrange your omelet bar fixings.
Cover a rimmed cookie sheet with parchment paper and set out several ramekins that you spray with nonstick spray. The ramekins we used for this post were 3.5 ounces each.
Have the family prepare their own omelets by adding their favorite filling combinations.
Fill each ramekin about 2/3 full and place on the parchment paper. Use a sharpie to write each family members name near their prepared ramekin, so there is no confusion as to whose omelet is who’s.
HOW LONG SHOULD I BAKE AN OMELETTE IN A RAMEKIN?
Bake for about 20 minutes or until a knife comes out clean.
on’t fret if the omelets are inches higher than the ramekins as they bake. They will fall back down.
Serve up each omelet with a yummy cinnamon roll that you can cook at the same time as the omelets.
With a little fruit on the side, you have a complete brunch that was not only easy but sure to be a crowd-pleaser. If you don’t have ramekins, you can always make Ziploc Omelets. Another self serves the breakfast option.
Mother’s Day should be a day to celebrate all you do the rest of the year, so get the kids and husbands an easy alternative for a Mother’s Day brunch.

This is such a great idea. My mother is an egg lover and being able to customize her own special omelet would send her over the moon.
This is definitely one of the cutest Mother’s Day ideas I have seen yet! I may just set this one up for myself and indulge in them lol Thanks for sharing 😀
That’s a fun way to serve up omelets. I know my fav. would love ’em!
I love this idea for Mother’s Day, but it would also be great ANY Sunday as far as I’m concerned.
I love the looks of the omelet bar…what a great brunch idea. This would be such a great way to spend time together with family and not have to go out to the crowded restaurants to eat the overpriced food.
It helps if Dad gets involved on Mother’s Day brunch too.
What a great idea! I have a house full of picky eaters, and this would be great for them!
Sign my kids up for lessons in how to spoil me, would you?!
You can help the night before but the rest is up to the family!!
I like this idea a lot, especially if I am not the cook. I’d add some mushrooms for my eggs because I love them. I’m going to send this post to my hubby. 😉
Great idea! I just ate and now I’m hungry again!
not really mothers day if you are cooking!
Sold! Love this idea, simple enough that the kids could make their own omelets and would be perfect for mother’s day.
We normally run things a little low key… I would rather spend time with just my kids and my family then the entire planet!
What a cute idea! i feel your pain about cooking half the day!
I’m looking for different ideas for Mother’s Day this year and my mom would love this!
