I’ve been making this omelette for a few years now, special for my husband, because it is his favorite. It’s packed with protein because it had lots of eggs, and veggies for a good vitamin boost. I usually throw in tomatoes to add just a slight sweetness but for this recipe I wanted crunch so I used two kinds of bell peppers. I round out the flavors with shallots and french herbs, and cooking the veggies in a little olive oil, salt and pepper finish the dish perfectly.
But the real start of the show is the eggs, and I prefer Eggland’s Best Eggs. I usually buy the brown eggs but decided to go with the large white ones for a change of pace. Eggland’s Best Eggs is celebrating 25 years of providing a better egg with superior quality, freshness, nutrition and taste. When I can’t get fresh laid eggs from my neighbor I buy Eggland’s Best because I think the flavor is the best. I’ve had the opportunity to work with the company several times over the years and I am always on board to share information with my readers because it is a company that I respect and use myself 🙂
Right now, Eggland’s Best is holding a recipe photo contest, and they want people to send in their best photos of their wonderful recipes using Eggland’s Best eggs. The grand prize winner will get $5000!! But you need to hurry because this contest ends April 12th. You can get a ton of recipe ideas in the meantime. I was on the site earlier looking for the best deviled eggs recipe since Easter is coming soon!
Vegetarian Pepper Omelette
5-6 Large eggs
1/4 C. diced Green peppers
1/4 C. diced Red peppers
1 small shallot, diced
1 pinch french herbs
2 TBS. Olive Oil
- Heat oil in large skillet. Add veggies and saute until shallot pieces turn translucent, about 3 minutes.
- Stir eggs with a fork to mix them, then add eggs on top of the veggies.
- Let mixture cook for one minute, then rotate the pan so the egg yolks make it up the sides.
- When mixture is almost all cooked, carefully slip spatula under half of the mixture and flip it into a half moon shape. This is not a traditional omelette, it is thicker.
- Cook one more minute after flipping, then take off the heat.
- Sprinkle french herbs and enjoy.
