  • For the omelette:
  • 1 red onion
  • 8 eggs
  • 4 tbsp. dried parsley
  • 2 tbsp. dried chives
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1/3 c extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/3 c flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. baking soda
  • For the yogurt sauce:
  • 1 c Greek yogurt
  • 1 tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. dried parsley
  • 1/2 tsp. dried chives


  1. For the omelette: Preheat oven to 425F.
  2. Finely dice onion.
  3. Crack eggs into a medium mixing bowl. Add parsley, chives, salt, and pepper. Whisk vigorously until thoroughly combined.
  4. Once oven is preheated, place olive oil in a large, oven-safe skillet. Place skillet in oven and heat until oil is shimmering, about 2-3 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, in a large mixing bowl, add onions, flour, baking powder, and baking soda. Stir to make sure onions are coated.
  6. Add egg mixture to bowl with onions and flour mixture. Whisk until completely combined and smooth.
  7. Carefully remove skillet from oven; remember the handle is hot! Pour omelette in and return skillet to oven. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown. A knife inserted in the center should come out clean.
  8. For the yogurt sauce: While the omelette bakes, prepare the yogurt sauce. In a small bowl combine yogurt, lemon juice, parsley, chives, and salt to taste. Stir to combine. Taste and adjust seasoning, if needed.
  9. When the omelette is done, remove from oven. Run a spatula around the outside of the omelette to loosen from pan. You can lift omelette out and place on a serving plate, if desired.
  10. Cut into wedges and serve with yogurt sauce on the side. This is delicious served warm or at room temperature.
