Vegetable Omelets

Vegetable Omelets recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen
Omelets packed with as many vegetables as we can possibly fit inside are one of our favorite meals for breakfast or for dinner. This lovely omelet is brought to you by my awesome husband. Trust me, you wouldn't be the slightest bit tempted to recreate my version of an omelet. Mary's Omelets = Messy Scrambled Egg Skillets. I wasn't feeling great a couple nights ago, so he offered to make dinner. Naturally, when I saw what a work of art his prep bowls were, I grabbed my camera.

Vegetable Omelets
Yield: 2 servings
(printable recipe)

1 teaspoon olive oil or butter
1 tablespoon scallions or green onions, sliced thin
1/4 cup grape tomatoes, sliced in half
1/4 cup mushrooms, chopped small, these can be sauteed first or added raw
small handful baby spinach leaves, wilted in hot water
1/4 cup cheddar cheese, shredded or sliced thin
4 eggs, very lightly whisked together

Break 4 eggs into a small bowl and whisk them together just for a moment, until they are combined. Place a non stick skillet over low/medium heat on the stove. When the skillet is hot, melt the butter or oil in it and tilt to coat the pan. Pour the eggs into the pan and tilt the pan to evenly cover the bottom with eggs. When the eggs start to set, very carefully run your spatula along the edges of the omelet and lift upwards with the spatula. This will prevent the omelet from sticking to the pan and it should also allow the uncooked eggs to run underneath and cook.

After just a few minutes, when the eggs have turned white on the bottom and are beginning to cook around the edges, place the assorted toppings on one side of the eggs.

After the toppings have been added, let the omelet cook for another minute or so. Then, lift one side of the omelet and slide the omelet mostly over to the lifted side of the pan and flip the lifted side over on top of the other side. Let it cook for about a minute more to finish the eggs and then slide the finished omelet directly onto a plate.

  2. What a man!! He can cook for me anytime! So wonderful that he took care of you.
    I was just browsing through your wonderful posts about your dehydrator. We bought one MONTHS ago and I have yet to use it. You have really inspired me to pull it out of the box and finally do something with it, just haven't decided what yet.

  3. I love eating an omelette just like that, for lunch. It's a great meal - and so nutritious with all that omega 3!

    About 'The Technology Trap,' no, I didn't get back to sleep that night. Oh well, tomorrow is another day. :-)

  4. I have about 40 double yolked eggs in my fridge that were given to me free. I have been making tons of ice cream, but I'm thinking omelet now.:)

  13. I love a good omelet. Did 4 eggs feed all of you?

  14. The hotness factor of a man cooking is second only the the attractiveness of a man vacuuming or folding laundry.

    My omelettes come out a lot like your description of your own. BTW--we are big fans of baked oatmeal around here, too.

  15. StephenC - We made three omelets. The baby and I split one in half and he ate every bit of his. My boys split one as well and my husband ate most of the last one. I just figured it would be easier to give the measurements separate for each omelet you want to make. I assumed that one omelet would be two servings for most people.

  16. They look great! Funny, my hubby makes all of the egg dishes in our family, too. I can microwave, fry or poach them but scrambled or omelets - I leave them up to Jim!

  21. This looks great. I love it when my hubby cooks for me. He makes a killer super thin omelet that I love.

  22. Oh my god, all of my omelets end up as scrambled eggs also! It's obscene and kind of sad. Does your husband want to come teach me how to do it right? Cause this looks super good.
