Easy to Make Veggie & Herb Omelet
When I was little and spent the night at my Granny’s house, I would awaken to the smells of smoked sausage cooking and coffee. I would move at a snails pace to her large farmhouse table with matted hair, still in my pajamas and take my seat. Almost always she would serve us a hearty meal of grits, eggs, sausage and hot buttered toast as she detailed our day of adventure. Sometimes we’d clean out the junk house, take a trip to town or we’d spend the day picking blackberries, pecans, or corn but we always had a good time hanging out with her. She’s the reason I love Saturday mornings so much and the reason I eat so many vegetables too.
It doesn’t happen very often but I treasure the Saturday mornings when I can linger with a cup of coffee, read through a magazine and enjoy a leisurely breakfast. There’s nothing like starting your day off with a hearty meal surrounded by your friends or family. I could eat breakfast foods for all the meals and omelets are one of my favorites. Here are the ingredients you’ll need to start your day off right with an easy to make veggie and herb omelet:
In a small bowl whip together several eggs with a fork. Add salt and pepper if desired. After you’ve sliced the vegetables you want to use, coat your skillet with cooking spray or a bit of butter. Next pour the whipped eggs into a skillet and place on medium heat.
Then add the sliced vegetables and herbs into the egg mixture. Add cheese if desired. Cook for approximately 2 minutes or until the eggs begin to set at the bottom of the skillet.
Using a spatula carefully, fold over one side of your omelet. Cover with lid. Allow cheese to melt and your omelet to cook thoroughly another 2-3 minutes or until the egg is dry.
Depending on how many eggs you use this entire omelet process will take approximately 5-6 minutes as eggs cook quickly but you need to make sure they are cooked completely. Serve with side of hashbrowns or fresh fruit and enjoy.
I hope you guys have a happy weekend filled with rest and relaxation.
This looks so yummy…the ingredients will give you plenty of energy to start your day off right. I love your little snippet of time spent at your Grandma’s. I also have fond memories of spending nights at my Grandparents and waking up to breakfast smells (and roosters). Aahh, the simple things in life… Have a great weekend!
You’re so sweet, Lori, thank you. It was waking up to the sounds of roosters and cows ha ha. She has a great place and even at 85 she’s still so much fun to hang out with. Hope you had an awesome weekend as well. Hugs, Coco
CoCo – I know where I’m having breakfast tomorrow morning! Your omelet looks so tasty! I’m not a big breakfast eater but I do love a good omelet! Thanks of sharing your recipe and tales of your beloved childhood! Cheers to a great weekend!
I could eat breakfast foods at all three meals, you know I have a bit of a sweet tooth so breakfast pretty much had me at cinnamon roll 🙂 Hope you enjoy the omelet, you need to make one for Honey Bee!
This looks delicious!! I seem to have an omelet block – I can’t make one to save my life. My attempts always end up looking more like scrambled eggs with lots of ingredients rather than an omelet. But, I am going to try again, using this recipe! Will let you know how it goes. xo, Brooke
I could eat breakfast for all three meals, Brooke! I hope this recipe helps your omelet making skills out a bit. You’re fantastic at pretty much everything so I’m not worried at all 🙂
