The Omelet Roll

This omelet roll is delightful...it is easy to put together, quick to bake, and impressive to serve.  It also lends itself to so many different flavor combinations.  I did a ham and cheese with chives, but it would taste great with any number of things including bacon, roasted vegetables, salsa, add a little grainy mustard between the egg and ham layer, change out the cheeses, etc.  I made this a light version by using 3 whole eggs and 3 egg whites, you can't tell that it is even missing the extra calories. Give it a try!

The Omelet Roll
3 whole eggs
3 egg whites
1/3 cup flour
1 cup milk
6-8 thin slices deli ham
cheddar cheese
chives or green onions
salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Prepare a 9x13 inch pan with cooking spray and parchment paper.  (I like to use both because the parchment paper makes it so much easier to roll the omelet.)  Whisk together the eggs, milk, flour, chives, salt, and pepper.  Add to the prepared cookie sheet.  Bake in oven for 15-20 minutes or until eggs are set and feel firm.  Remove from oven and sprinkle with grated cheese and add a layer of ham.  Begin rolling omelet.  Center omelet onto middle of pan or serving tray and sprinkle with additional cheese and chives before serving.  Slice and enjoy.
