In my mind, breakfast is one of those meals I know I shouldn’t skip but is often the first to go when I’m busy. This is especially true Monday through Friday. Between getting myself dressed and our house cleaned up before heading off to work, I’m lucky to grab a banana.
The weekend, however, is a different story.
I love my weekends. I love being able to control my schedule and do as little or as much as I want. I use those two days to catch up on my DVR’d shows (yes, I made that a verb) and to make great breakfasts for my husband and son. I liken it to those middle-aged men with little red sports cars–I overcompensate. I’ve been on an omelet kick here lately. They are simple, but you can dress them up as little or as much as you like. If you find time this weekend, give an omelet a try. Here’s an easy recipe to get you started.
Sausage & Pepper Omelet
*This recipe makes one omelet, double or triple as you need
- 1 egg
- 1 tablespoon milk
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1/4 cup sausage, cooked
- 1/4 cup shredded cheddar
- 1/8 cup yellow bell pepper, diced
- 1/8 cup red pepper, diced
- 1/8 cup jalapeno pepper, diced
- 1/8 cup red onion, diced
- 1/8 cup green onion, thinly sliced and garnish
- 1 tablespoon cilantro, chopped
- cherry tomato, garnish
Crack the egg and add the milk; mix. Heat 1 tablespoon of butter in a skillet over medium-low. Once the butter melts, add the peppers and onion. When the veggies are soft, turn off the heat. Now, add the other tablespoon of butter ito another skillet over medium-low. Once the butter melts, add the egg. Cook until it bubbles up and then flip. Add the cheese, cooked veggies, green onion and cilantro. Fold over and remove from heat when the egg is done and cheese has melted. Garnish with a sliced cherry tomato and green onion.
