In my family we really like these baked omelettes, or “madpandekager" as we call them in danish. They are easy to make and you can fill them with whatever you like. I had been craving goat cheese for a few days, so I had to try a simple filling for the omelette, but I knew I needed to add some meat to the mix, to satisfy my husbands tastebuds. The crispy prosciutto did the trick, and it added some texture to the meal as well.
Next time, I'll add some more vegetables to the roulade.
- 4 eggs
- 125 g all-purpose flour
- 400 g non-fat milk
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 360 g fresh baby spinach
- 100 g Philadelphia light plain or with onions and chives
- 1 handful kalamati olives, pitted
- 3 tablespoons sun dried tomatoes, julienned
- 1 red onion in balsamic
- 150 g goat cheese
- 8-10 thin slices prosciutto
Preheat oven to 400℉ (200℃).
In a very large pot heat a little olive oil sauté the spinach. Cook it for about 2 minutes, until all the spinach is wilted. Let the spinach cool for at few minutes.
Whisk together the rest of the omelet ingredients. Blend the batter with the spinach until smooth and green.
Line a large jelly roll pan with parchment paper, leaving an over hang of about 1 inch at each end. Grease the parchment paper. (I learned the hard way, that you can't use multiple sheets of parchment paper. You'll just end up with the parchment paper baked into the omelette.)
Pour in egg mixture. Gently place it in the oven and bake for about 30 minutes. Remove, allow to cool for a few minutes. Flip the omelette onto another parchment paper, so it's upside down.
Using the same jelly roll pan and parchment paper, place the prosciutto on the pan and put them into the oven for 10-12 minutes to crisp up.
Dollop on the cream cheese and spread it evenly. Sprinkle on the filling, leaving about an inch with no filling. Place the prosciutto on top. Gently roll up length ways, pulling back the parchment paper as you go.
Slice in to 6-8 slices. Serve warm or room temperature, with a simple salad on the side.
The omelette is great for lunch or dinner, just serve a simple salad on the side. It is very easy to change it up. It works great with fresh spinach, red pepper and smoked salmon. Or with taco-seasoned ground beef, jalapeño, tomato and corn. But why not serv it with yesterdays leftovers?
