Omelet – Italian Style

Omelette - Italian Style

Omelet is a simple, yet filling breakfast. I love that you can create any filling you want and use left over 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.
