Mushroom & Gruyere Omelette

3 Jul

Omelettes are wonderful for a satisfying meal any time of day! I enjoyed this one for lunch at K & L Bistro. Eggs are a great option for eating vegetarian, and I prefer a meatless meal much of the time. I love vegetables and just about any of them go with eggs.

There are so many ingredients for filling them, such as sauteed red and yellow peppers, onions, spinach (one of my favorites in an omelette!), feta, peaches, sliced prosciutto, crab, and more! They are also a great vehicle for using up leftovers, like a ratatouille, or sausage ragu.

If you’re not comfortable with the idea if making an omelette, you could also use the same ingredients to do a frittata or even just scrambled eggs. Add a salad of greens and you’ve got a quick, delicious and affordable meal that won’t heat up your kitchen for more than about 10 minutes!

    This really sounds good Kim. I have some Gruyere (I love this cheese) already and just need some fresh mushrooms for this. We are headed to Whidbey Island for the 4th and will definately make this for the crowd. Have a great 4th holiday.

      Thanks Dene! I think Gruyere is one of the best cheeses, like Parmesan! Have a great 4th too 🙂

    That omelette looks fantastic – of course I’d expect nothing less from K&L. 🙂 My husband and I fall back on omelettes for many meals – breakfast, lunch, or dinner. As you said, so versatile!
