Self Serve Mother’s Day Brunch Omelet Bar

Self Serve Mother’s Day Brunch Omelet Bar

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 sport activities. Doesn’t feel much like a special day, especially when I am preparing the “brunch” after church. This year, I will be  making an omelet 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.

A few days before Mother’s Day, head to ALDI 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.

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.

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.

Bake for about 20 minutes or until a knife comes out clean.

Don’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 serve breakfast option.

  3. That’s a fun way to serve up omelets. I know my fav. would love ’em!

  4. I love this idea for Mother’s Day, but it would also be great ANY Sunday as far as I’m concerned.

  5. 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.

  6. It helps if Dad gets involved on Mother’s Day brunch too.

  9. You can help the night before but the rest is up to the family!!

  10. 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. 😉

  11. Great idea! I just ate and now I’m hungry again!

  12. 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!
