Tasty Tuesday – Omelets

I usually am not a breakfast for dinner type of girl, but every now and then bacon, eggs and hot biscuits sound good after a long day’s work. For a healthier twist on a.m. in the p.m., WMAG reader Theresa suggests omelets.

“They’re a breakfast food that easily translates to dinner,” she writes. “Try:
– spinach and feta
– crumbled pre-cooked bacon, diced potatoes (the frozen kind) and shredded cheddar
– sausage, pasta sauce and ricotta
– mushrooms, onion and pepper topped with salsa”

Theresa makes her omelets with egg substitute, but you also can make them “fully-loaded.”

If you’ve never made an omelet before, here are the basics, courtesy of howstuffworks.com.

  1. I love this concept, but I’m crap at flipping omlettes, so I make fritatas, where you cook the bottom on the stove and the top in an oven. Then we cut them up like pizza. They’re awesome as long as I don’t forget that that skillet handle is blazing hot.

  2. I suck at flipping omlettes as well.

    So, I’m going to have to steal jesser’s fritata idea (sans scalding hot skillet handle) with Theresa’s filling/topping ideas.
