    ellie_'s Note:

    This is a wonderful breakfast for the day after Thanksgiving or any day when you want to use up leftover cranberry sauce (try it with Cranberry Sauce with Apple Cider Cranberry Sauce With Apple Cider or any whole berry cranberry sauce). *The original recipe recommended lingonberries but suggested cranberries as a good alternative.

    Units: US | Metric

    For the filling


    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 400-degrees F.
    2. 2
      Whisk eggs, milk, flour and salt together in a large measuring cup or bowl.
    3. 3
      Melt butter (2 tablespoons) in a 12-inch skillet (that is oven safe- I used a cast iron skillet) over medium heat.
    4. 4
      Add egg mixture and cook for 2-5 minutes, lifting edges to allow uncooked part to run underneath.
    5. 5
      Put omlet in oven and bake until softly set (5 minutes). DO NOT OVERCOOK OR OMLET WILL BREAK WHEN FOLDED.
    6. 6
      While omlet is cooking prepare filling by combining all of the filling ingredients (cranberry sauce- cardamom) in a small saucepan over medium-low heat and cook for 3-5 minutes, stirring constantly.
    7. 7
      Spoon 1/3 of the filling onto half of the omlet.
    8. 8
      Slide omlet onto platter or serving dish, folding empty half over filled half.
    9. 9
      Spoon additional filling around omlet (or serve on the side) and sprinkle with powder sugar.
    10. 10
      Serve with whipped cream and additional filling if desired.

      I ABSOLUTELY NEVER have leftover cranberry sauce, mostly because I make a large batch of it probably more than 12-15 times a year! Love that stuff, & just knew that your recipe would give me another great way to use it (which it did)! Definitely worth a try, people, 'cause it's delicious! Many thanks for sharing the recipe!

      As soon as I saw this recipe I knew that I would like it but may I say if I could give this 10 stars I would. It was wonderful. I did take a couple of liberties - I used 3/4 cup of dried cranberries and added 1/2 cup of apple jelly (I had no canned cranberries open). I pan friedthe omelette This omelette is so tasty.

      I had some leftover cranberry sauce in the fridge & decided this was the way to use it. I scaled this down to serve one and did my filling mixture in the microwave rather than dirty another saucepan. It seemed a little strange to my tastes at first, me being used to an omelette being savoury but this was a lovely brekky which kept my "sweet tooth" happy. Thanks Ellie!
