My boyfriend and I have eaten out for breakfast damn near every weekend since we’ve been dating (almost a year). He rarely orders anything other than a omelette and I usually order something I can drench in syrup along with my bacon. Since we are in the works of moving in together I decided that it’s time I start doing what I love the most, experimenting in the kitchen! It’s the best way for us to save on cash and calories, and feeding people has always brought me joy. Plus I wanted to be able to cook him his favorite semi-healthy dish every weekend. I’ve never been a fan of omelette’s simply because my stomach doesn’t like all that egg, but I figured out that it’s the yolk that tends to turn my stomach. So I figured I’d give it a shot too!
This omelette has everything I imagined a good omelette should have. And I was right. ^_^
- 4 eggs whites
- Jimmy Dean ground spicy sausage
- 1 handful of Spinach
- Half red bell pepper
- Pepper jack cheese
- Olive oil
Preheat oven to 400
I first prepped the tomato since it has to cook the longest. Cut off the end of the tomato and make slices about a quarter inch thick. Lay the slices in a baking dish and drizzle some olive oil over them and sprinkle with a little salt and pepper. Place in oven for about 10-15 min.
Cut the bell pepper into thin strips and then cut them in half. Throw them in a skillet with a little olive oil and cook until they are soft. It will really bring out their flavor!
Throw the spinach in with the bell pepper and continue cooking until the spinach starts to wither then transfer the mix to a bowl.
Grab your ground sausage and fry up just enough for your omelette. Cook throughly and transfer to bowl with vegetables and mix.
Crack your eggs and separate the yolks if you aren’t using egg whites From a carton. If you are, you need about 3/4 of a cup. Pour a little olive oil and put 1 tbsp of butter into a clean nonstick pan. Spread it around and pour in the egg whites. As the eggs start to turn white use a fork to drag in egg from the outer edges to the middle of the pan making sure to tilt and spread the uncooked egg around the pan. You won’t need to add salt really because of the sausage and salted tomatoes, sprinkle with pepper. Go ahead and lay out your tomatoes on top of the still cooking egg, spread your sausage and vegetable mix and top with cheese. Cover the pan and let cook until cheese is completely melted.
