Gettin’ Eggy With It

What do you call an omelet that isn’t yours? NACHO OMELET!


See? This omelet isn’t yours. It’s mine. It’s almost gone. By the time I hit ‘post’, it will be gone.

I need your help. Judging by the 4000+ pages views this blog has gotten since I started it back in November, someone is reading, and now I need ideas. As you know, I LOVE breakfast. However, variety is the spice of life, and I feel the need to step it up in the omelet department. Eggs are a fantastic vehicle to mix things into, but with my past of picky eating, I really didn’t pick up on this until… September or so.

Better to come to your senses later than never, right? That said, I’m looking to expand my horizons on egginess. Here’s what I’ve got so far.

(BTW… aforementioned Nacho Omelet -which I am about to mention again- is now GONE. Yum.)

Nacho Omelet: 1 full egg, 1 egg white, pico de gallo and if you’re in the faileo mood, mix in some shredded jack and/or cheddar cheese. Of course I forgot I had guacamole in the fridge until I was already 80% finished eating this morning. Had I remembered 10 minutes sooner, this would have had a nice garnish of guac to go with it. Mmmm. Better luck next time.

Got Leftovers? 2 full eggs, ham from Mom’s house and spinach from that giant bag (that’s STILL not gone). LOOK, Dad! The happy spatula you got me for Christmas with the purpose of getting on the blog has made its debut.


Go Green: Spinach, spinach and more spinach. Gotta get ready for that Popeye costume for Halloween, right?

Ol’ Reliable: Eggs. Whisked. Cooked in bacon grease. Pretty challenging to mess this one up.


The Breakfast Buffet: Omelet bar at work! Egg whites, Spinach, Tomato, Onion… with the occasional mushroom cameo.


Snow White: So you’re not feeling yolky. Egg whites only.


As of today… this is all I’ve got. I wouldn’t call it a snoozer by any means, because some classics don’t need messing with. However, some days you just might feel like jazzing it up a bit. Does anyone have any fun ideas for me to try?
