Omelets are one of my favorite things to make for breakfast or really even any meal. Especially if you want to do breakfast for dinner, this would be a great option. Now you’re probably saying “open faced”??? Like huh? Well, here’s kinda how I look at it.
I love lots of veggies in my omelets. It just is more filling and I’m getting more “bang for my buck” when it comes to calories and nutrition. But then when I try to fold it over and it’s so full, it can be kinda messy. So, this kinda happened by accident and it was SO yummy.
Here’s how I do it.
Open Faced Omelette
- * Two eggs
- * Veggies (I like mushrooms for sure and I add spinach if I have that as well)
- * Cooking spray
- * Shredded mixed cheese
- * Jane’s Crazy Mixed Up Salt
- * Small skillet
Turn your oven on to 350 and preheat it. First I sauté the mushrooms in my cooking spray and sprinkle a bit of my Jane’s Crazy Mixed Up Salt as I’m cooking them. Then I pour my eggs that I’ve beaten on top and move my skillet around so it covers the entire area. As it’s beginning to set, I add my cheese and then pop it into the oven for just a few minutes to it cooks all the way thru and melts on top. Because I’m not flipping it, I want to make sure the inside is cooked well but not burned. Putting the skillet in the oven will heat it evenly, making sure the top is melted nicely while the center of the eggs are cooked and the bottom isn’t burned.
That’s it. Just a little different twist to the omelette, but it looks beautiful, it keeps it’s shape, and it’s a perfect meal for 2 or even 4. Just cut it up kinda like a pizza! And if you have more to serve, then just adjust accordingly and add more eggs to cover more space of the skillet, and of course the rest of your veggies and cheese.
Just because I’m a mushroom freak doesn’t mean you need to use mushrooms. Use peppers, tomatoes, spinach, anything you want.
The difference between this and a frittata is that those are all mixed together and baked. This almost set in “layers”.
So if you’re looking for a special breakfast or brunch that looks fancy but super easy to make, this is your answer. Serve it with some fruit on the side and you have a lovely and protein rich meal.
