Weekend Breakfasts: Omelets

In: Entrees, Let's Share, Recipes


If there is one thing I love about the weekends it would have to be late morning breakfasts.

I usually get up fairly early (even on the weekends).  I like to get things done around the house- like the dishes from the night before, some cleaning, and laundry.  After that is taken care of and everyone else is up and moving- time for breakfast!  This weekend was no exception.  I looked into the fridge- lots of yummy vegetables: green peppers, onion, mushrooms, and tomatoes- throw in some cheese and eggs and you have one of my all time favorites- omelet!  There are many different ways to make a omelet and people like them with more cheese or less vegetable.  I like mine with LOTS of veggies and little egg or cheese.  Here is my recipe for a perfect omelet.

2-3 tablespoons of chopped onion

1/4 cup chopped green pepper

1-2 button mushrooms sliced and diced

1 tablespoon tomato- diced

Sprinkle of cheese (cheddar or mozzarella)

1 egg

Salt and Pepper

In a small skillet, warm 1/2 tablespoon of butter and 1 tsp. olive oil.  Add vegetables except for the tomato.  Let cook for about 2 minutes.  You do not want your vegetables to be soft- a little bite to them is what you want.  Meanwhile, crack open your egg into a dish.   Add a pinch of salt and pepper and 1-2 teaspoons of water.  Mix with a fork until combined.  Add egg directly over the vegetables.  Add the tomato and cheese.  Let cook until the outer edges are firming up.  Now, this part may seem tricky, but you can do it either way.  You could fold up either side of the omelet making more of a crepe looking omelet or fold one side of the egg directly on top of the other side.  Once you choose your method- flip egg over and let cooking for 1-2 minutes longer.  Enjoy!
