A Hearty Breakfast

Gary usually has oatmeal and I usually have fruit for breakfast. Today I decided to make a hearty breakfast. We had roasted purple potatoes and a pepper jack cheese and red onion omelet. Most times I add mushrooms and red bell peppers to my omelet but I was out of those.

I can usually get an omelet to turn out fairly well using a non stick pan. I start by sauteing onion and then adding four beaten eggs. Next I drop pieces of the pepper jack cheese. You can substitute any type of cheese you like. I cover the pan and cook it on low till the egg is thoroughly cooked and starts to puff up.

Then I take a spatula and fold the omelet in half and cut the half in half and we each have half. Well actually I cut Gary a larger half of the omelet since he has a hollow leg. Ha. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.


  1. mmmmmmmm... looks good. Glad you could fill up Gary's hollow leg!

  2. You made me hungry! : D Purple potatoes! I didn't know inside is purple! : D

  3. Sounds like a great omelet!

  4. Sounds tasty.I made one the other day with pan roasted Brussels sprouts and a mild cheddar blend. Really tasty. A little onion wouldn't have hurt but I was out.

  5. That sounds delicious!
    Any new house news?

  6. I hope I can come in for breakfast if I am lost in your campground any time soon.

  7. Yum yum.... again, I think you will attract many visitors to your meal table from around the world! We had boiled egg and two slices of toast this morning, which was actually rather a nice way to start the day. Porridge is what we do most mornings!

  8. Yummo. A good omelette is a thing of joy and beauty. Though I am not usually up to eggs in the morning.

  9. Nice job on the omelette. I sometimes cook them for dinner. It's finally starting to cool off here in Texas, so oatmeal for breakfast is the norm around here too.

  10. The nice thing about omelets is that you don't have to have them for breakfast.

  11. What a gorgeous omelet! My hub's got a hollow leg, too. Have a fab weekend. (Oh, almost forgot. Our town's got a shop that advertises salt-dried pottery, uh?)

  12. Hi Michele, thanks, if only I was as thin as Gary. Ha.

    Hi Midori, thanks, oh they are delicious and I like to think they are better for me. Ha.

    Hi Gigi, thanks, I usually don't cook breakfast but every once in a while I splurge.

    Hi Dennis, thanks, sounds delicious, I love brussel sprouts but Gary would gag, maybe one day I'll make one just for myself.

    Hi Suzi, thanks, no news yet but getting closer.

    Hi Joanne, thanks, any time just give a knock and I'll cook one of for you.

    Hi Peter, thanks, been a long time since I had a hard boiled egg but you have given me an idea about cooking up a few to take with us when we are looking for a new home.

    Hi Meredith, thanks, a good egg is a good find for sure.

    Hi Elephant's Child, thanks, by the time I get around to making the omelet it's more a brunch than breakfast. Ha.

    Hi Barbara, thanks, glad you are finally cooling off, been getting a lot cooler here as well.

    Hi Lori, thanks, that is so true an omelet can serve and meal.

    Hi Kittie, thanks, maybe that's salt fired pottery? Have a good one yourself. Ha.


I love suggestions, questions, critiques, thanks for your comment
