The first rule of this omelette is that it doesn’t even have to be an omelette. Some people are just not skilled enough to actually make an omelette, like my wife Carolynn. She actually needs a machine to help her make and omelette. If you want, scramble it all together in a pan and see what happens, it’s excellent. The staple of this “omelette” is without a doubt the Colby-Jack shredded cheese blend. This should always be available in every supermarket dairy sectioned pre-bagged to your liking. Colby-Jack seems to be the perfect cheese to compliment the eggs flavor. Begin by spraying 2 non-stick pans with a good amount of Pam, always all natural and low calorie, and begin to sauté your vegetables.
½ Cup of Colby-Jack shredded blend
½ cup of freshly chopped Spinach
½ cup diced Purple Onions
1 medium to small tomato, slice and discard seeds and liquid
½ cup freshly chopped Baby Bella Mushrooms
Small amount of Green habanero hot sauce
Both pans should be set at medium to high. Begin by chopping and sautéing the purple onions, while the onions are sautéing, chop the baby bella mushrooms and throw them in the pan. Flip the vegetables in the pan, and begin dicing the tomato. Throw the tomato in the pan and begin chopping the spinach. Finally throw the spinach on top. (The spinach cooks much quicker so always add last.) Use the spatula to work all of the vegetables around the pan.
Pour the 4 eggs in to the pan and begin creating your omelette. Let the omelet cook until all the liquid egg has been moved to the sides and the center is as solid as it will get. Toss in the vegetables and throw the Colby-Jack on top. To let the cheese melt, put the cover on the pan for about 30 seconds, then flip half of the omelette on top of the other to cover the vegetables and cheese. Put the omelette on a plate pour the hot sauce to your liking.
As I said earlier, you don’t even need to make this as an omelet to enjoy. You can scramble your Colby Fire Jack Vegetable Eggs. Saute the vegetables for a few minutes, pour the non cooked eggs on top of the vegetables and scramble in the pan together. Pour the Colby-Jack into the pan about 30 seconds before the eggs are done and scramble everything together. Pour hot sauce over top of the eggs and serve.
Green Jew Grocer Tip of the Week:
Purple Onions are packed with anti-oxidants and bring more flavor. Also, Baby Bella mushrooms last longer than regular mushrooms.
