    Omelet is a simple, yet filling breakfast. I love that you can create any filling you want and use leftover vegetables in the fridge.

    Today I added cooked ground sausage from our local farmer, chopped red sweet peppers, onion, and shredded Swiss cheese.

    I will be adding more omelet variations.

    How to Make Omelet Italian Style

    Ingredients

    8 organic pastured eggs

    1/2 lbs ground sausage

    2 red bell peppers, chopped

    1 medium onion, chopped

    1/2 cup shredded Swiss cheese

    salt & pepper, to taste

    4 Tbsp olive oil

    omelet

    Wash and cut onion and red bell peppers. Heat 1 Tbsp olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the vegetables, add a pinch of salt and saute for about 3 minutes. Remove from skillet and set aside.

    Cook the ground sausage in the skillet until cooked through, about 5 -7 minutes. Transfer to the plate with the onion and bell peppers.

    In a bowl whisk 2 eggs and add a dash of salt and pepper. Heat over medium-high heat 1 Tbsp olive oil in the skillet you cooked the vegetables. Add egg mixture to hot skillet and cook while the eggs sit undisturbed for about a minute until egg mixture is set.  With a spatula flip the omelet on the other side and cook for about 30 seconds.

    Transfer to a plate, add filling & cheese and fold omelet in half. Now you can ring the breakfast bell!

    While making the remaining omelets, cover with foil to keep warm.

    Enjoy!
