This is what happens when you have so many leftover taco ingredients that you don’t know what to do with them. I love omelettes and I thoroughly enjoy a good taco, so I combined the two and made this glorious concoction: the taco omelette. Seasoned ground beef, shredded cheddar cheese, salsa and sour cream are the ingredients I included, but you could use shredded chicken, refried beans or rice — the sky’s the limit.
I can get used to this improvisation thing. I was looking for something to eat for a late breakfast and didn’t want a plain old omelette. Upon browsing through my fridge, I saw the makings of a pepperoni pizza minus the crust (after baking some homemade pizza for Monday night’s CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story movie viewing party), so I blended the two and came up with this delightful pepperoni pizza omelette.
Combining two eggs, pepper and some pizza seasoning, I proceeded to make an omelette, but added some pan-seared pepperoni and bell pepper, pizza sauce and mozzarella cheese inside. Amazing and simple! It was a pizza party in my mouth!
Breakfast, as they say, is the most important meal of the day. Admittedly, I’ve been slacking on making sure I get a hearty meal in at the start of the day. I’m trying to do better, starting with this simple breakfast sandwich, which includes pan-seared Hebrew National hot dogs, scrambled cheese eggs and toasted whole-grain wheat bread. These were ingredients I already had in my fridge and just involved a little improvising. I’m happy to report that this quick, tasty sammy kept my belly full well into the afternoon.
Growing up, French toast was a special breakfast treat served on Saturday mornings, and I can’t even remember the last time I had some. In the spirit of nostalgia — and satisfying my hankering — I whipped up a short stack for lunch. Needless to say, my stomach is happy.
I woke up on Saturday morning with a mission in mind: Must. Make. Delicious. Omelette. I was successful in that endeavor — if I can say so myself — with this tasty turkey, cheddar cheese and bell pepper omelette.
Fun fact: The omelette was one of my first culinary victories and they have been one of my go-to breakfast and brunch favorites ever since. As you can see, I like to enjoy mine with copious amounts of ketchup.
