Omelets are a delightful way to start your morning. They're packed with nutrition and delicious. Breakfast is arguably the most important meal of the day. You, and your children, likely haven't eaten for at least twelve hours.

Starting your day with a sufficient amount of nutrition means that you'll be more adequately prepared to tackle challenges that may lay ahead. This is especially true with children, who need a strong start to their day if they wish to succeed at school. These omelets are a great way to prepare everyone in your family for a great day.

There are quite a few steps to this recipe, so make sure you pay close attention and follow each one as-written. Making omelets in the oven is certainly less common than using a skillet, but you'll soon see why oven omelets are just as good as skillet omelets.

Consider having your kids give you a hand with this recipe! If you choose to do so, we recommend making these omelets in advance and meal-prepping them for future days. That way, you'll have plenty of time to work with your kids and won't feel overly stressed.
