Genie Vegetable Omelets

I have one son who can’t eat dairy, so we delete the cheese in his omelet. For that son, he likes huge omelets, so I make his omelets with four eggs, 7 pieces of bacon, and large amounts of veggies.

Tip: Before you cook the omelet, spray the pan with Pam and also add plenty of butter. Have the veggies and meat ready to add. Pick up the sides of the omelet and let the “runny egg part” go underneath while you are cooking. Cook on medium heat so you don’t burn the egg part. You have to pay attention when cooking omelets. They are fragile.

Pick from the following for your omelets:

1-4 eggs, well-beaten.

Saute any or all of these veggies in butter (I use a food processor to mince these first): mushrooms, red peppers, spinach, tomatoes, bell peppers, onions).

Cook the meat, either bacon or sausage.

Pour the eggs into the skillet with the melted butter and Pam. Swirl the eggs around and quickly add the hot veggies and meat. As I said above, pick up the sides of the omelet with a spatula and let the runny part run underneath to cook the eggs faster. I actually take the omelet out of the pan and put it on a plate before it is finished, because I am afraid it will burn! I put the omelet in the microwave for 30 seconds to finish cooking the eggs. I don’t like burned eggs!

If you can have dairy, put shredded cheese in the omelet when you put in the veggies.

Everyone around here loves omelets and it’s a great way to get in veggies!
