Omelet - Italian Style

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

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 extra virgin olive oil

INSTRUCTIONS

  • 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 and fold omelet in half. While making the remaining omelets, cover with foil to keep warm.
