Omelette Toppings

My Favorite Combinations

Herb and Cheese Omelette

  • 1 T butter
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ c chopped herbs
  • 4 oz grated cheese

Stir the herbs into the beaten eggs and cook per instructions, sprinkling the cheese on top of the omelette 30 seconds before you remove it from the stove. Serve with toast, jam, and aïoli or mayonnaise.

Mexican Breakfast Omelette

  • 1 T butter
  • ½ small onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 eggs

Sauté the onion and garlic until translucent. Pour the eggs on top and cook per instructions. Serve with Spanish rice, refried beans, salsa or diced tomatoes, guacamole, and tortillas.

Vegetable Omelette

  • 1 T butter
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ c steamed, diced vegetables (artichoke hearts, asparagus, mushrooms, onions, peppers, spinach, etc.)

Stir the vegetables into the eggs and cook per instructions. Serve with toast, jam, and tomato sauce, fresh tomatoes, aïoli, or mayonnaise.
