Egg, Cheese and Pepper Omelets


There's some nights my husband and I click on what we both want to eat. Tonight it happened to be omelets.
For those of you who have never attempted to make an omelet I went to You Tube and found a video you can watch.
Omelets are fun in that you can be as plain or as elaborate as you want to be.

We chose American cheese and green bell pepper for the inside of the omelet.

And to round out the meal a side of sausage links and some hash brown potatoes. The has browns came from Simply Potatoes which we find in the meat department of our store. Really pretty good product and easy to prepare.

I had an orange available so I decided to add it as the healthier element on the plate!

  • 2 eggs per person x 4 = 8 total eggs
  • 1/2 tsp. water for each two eggs = 2 tsp. water
  • 1 tbsp. milk for each two eggs = 4 tbsp. milk
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste
I prefer to do each persons omelet separately in it's own bowl so the amount of egg mixture is consistent for each person, however if you prefer just using one bowl then follow the directions below.
  1. In a large bowl add in the cracked eggs and whisk together briskly. Then add in the milk and whisk briskly again. And add the milk and salt and pepper and whisk briskly. The more you whisk air into the eggs, the fluffier and lighter the eggs will be.
  2. Over medium heat melt a little bit of butter in a non-stick skillet.
  3. Add in the egg mixture and swirl in the pan. Follow the video instructions for fluffing and cooking on the one side.
  4. When the top is almost cooked add in the cheese and the peppers. Fold the omelet over and cook for another minute or so until the cheese melts.
  5. Keep the omelets in an extremely low oven or under a heat lamp until you have finished the rest.

Here's the light and fluffy omelet

Total cost of this dinner of omelet, hash browns and sausage came to $11.78, feeding four for $2.94 each.
