The Best Omelet Ever.

by Katelyn Block on August 17, 2011 · 59 comments

Goooood afternoon mah lovies :) How are ya?!

I am sweepy weepy. Mostly because I couldn’t sleep last night (hello it’s nearly impossible without A/C…I know I know can’t take me anywhere ;)), and then woke up at 7:30 to pick up my best gal pal for some breakfasting.

Yes I just made that into a verb.

Anywho, I picked her up at the buttcrack-of-dawn (aka, 8 am) and we had Girl Talk until we got hungs. The belly never fails to be honest, and honesty is the best policy.

Omelet time it was. :)

Oh, and I guess it’s WIAW time since I actually ate one of these today? Love you Jen, I’m sorry this is the first time I’m participating but hey, a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do ;)

Since I didn’t get any pictures of our ugly a** omelet, I’m going to use a picture of the dinner omelet I had with Lisa last week. Ohhhhmahlawd next time you make an omelet, MAKE THIS ONE.

Best Omelet Ever

Ingredients:

  • 3 free range, organic eggs
  • sea salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 broccoli floret
  • a handful of chopped onion
  • 7 grape tomatoes
  • free-range, pastured butter (or extra-virgin coconut oil)
  • crumbled goat or raw cheese, or a drizzle of cashew cheese

Directions:

  1. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat and add your butter/coconut oil.
  2. Chop up your veggies as the skillet heats up, and then add to the pan and saute until softened.
  3. When fully cooked, remove and place them in a separate bowl.
  4. Crack your eggs and put them in a small bowl. Whisk together with sea salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Pour your eggs into the pan (with more butter if necessary), and allow to cook for a small amount of time, or until the bottom starts to firm up.
  6. Add your veggies and cheese to the omelet and allow to cook most of the way through.
  7. Scrape the edges (gently!) and flip one half of the omelet over the other. Allow to cook for another minute or two, until fully cooked.
  8. Plate and serve with more cheese crumbled or drizzled on top.

Major props to Lisa for concocting this bizznatch. The one I made this morning was the same, except it was filled with garlic dill goat cheese instead of the cashew cheese. They are both equally delicious.

Feel free to change up the veggies and cheese — get crazaaaay! This would be so good with some sauteed red onions and peppers.

This sucker kept me full for a straight 5 or 6 hours. Yeeeeuhhhh

Dinner was a Cookie Dough Bowl, had after my afternoon workout which was notttt the best I eva had. Kind of a flop. I think my body was telling me I needed a rest day but I was kind of all, HA jokes on you buddy, we’re gonna sweat today!

Yeah don’t try that method it’s useless.

I got them mooooves like jagga!

Also, thank you for all of the congrats on my new job!! I am SO excited, and I know my employers are too. I can’t wait to get mah cook on. ;)

I will prepping a brunch next Sunday for about 150-200 people (not by myself of course — I’ll be the sous chef), so tell me…

If you were going to a brunch before a religious service, what food would you want to be served?

I’d love to hear your input!!

xoxox,

You eat so many omelets…you may turn into one! But seriously, is anything as good as a cheesy vegetable-y omelet? I think not :)

The perfect brunch…hmmm, for that many people is tough—something you can produce quickly (or that doesn't have to served immediately)…. Omelets for everyone!

Ahahahah not gonna lie, I eat an omelet in some form every day. I just can't get enough. ;)

I associate church with donuts! Maybe some vegan donuts?!

I would be all about healthy muffins, fruit salad and maybe egg cups, since those can be served room temp without being nasty :)

Reply

Katelyn August 19, 2011 at 2:56 PM

Egg cups! Genius <3

I would definitely include some kind of fruit for your breakfast meal! A build your own oatmeal bar would be really cool too!

Reply

Katelyn August 19, 2011 at 2:56 PM

Yessss that would be cute too! And so simple. Thanks girl!!

Alyssa @ Life of bLyss August 17, 2011 at 2:22 PM

Done, and done.

Ellie August 17, 2011 at 2:25 PM

Hmmm I think that healthy pancakes, yogurt, and fruit are great!! And of course, jars of seed and nut butters! Haha, maybe you can just serve those only :P No for reals, everything others said here is great–including pancakes :P

Thanks.. Now I'm SERIOUSLY craving an omelet!

Reply

Katelyn August 19, 2011 at 2:57 PM

Trust me, just looking at it makes me want another one.

Reply

LillyKB August 17, 2011 at 3:10 PM

yum! now that is what real good food is, uh huh! Hmmm, since it is brunch there should be a mix of sweet and savory items. People always seem to like eggs, potatoes, and homemade waffles are always a big hit :) of course fruit/ fruit salad is a must, maybe a "parfait" bar with yogurt, granola, nuts, etc ? Mini muffins are always fun, that way you can sample a bunch of stuff, and my personal brunch fave are chocolate covered strawberries :D no shame! okay, now I want to go to a brunch buffet!

Reply

Katelyn August 19, 2011 at 2:57 PM

Parfait bar!!!! With plain yog! Genius

Reply

runningperspective August 17, 2011 at 3:20 PM

um GIRL first off I LOVE OMLETTES
second off—- fruit is always wonderful to have ont eh side with anything…love eggs…oatmeal too like with a build your own topping thingy…and of course a waffle station! <33

Katelyn August 19, 2011 at 2:58 PM

Wafffffles!!! I miss them! Lets have an omelet partyyy mmkay

Reply

marshmallowsandmeg August 17, 2011 at 3:44 PM

I'm typically not an egg fan, but that omelet looks amazing and I'm craving one right.this.second.

I feel like having a fruit salad, bagels/english muffins/baked goods, are always a hit at churches. And of course coffee! Ah, love buffet-style breakfasts.

Reply

Katelyn August 19, 2011 at 2:58 PM

baked goods are perrrfect — I can make them ahead of time!

Reply

Kristina August 17, 2011 at 3:44 PM

I vote for fruit plates and muffins, but maybe also little mini quiches. Y.U.M

Reply

Katelyn August 19, 2011 at 2:58 PM

Mini quiches!!! Yes! Perfect idea <3

I was going to make some pun with religion and brunch food, but I couldn't think of one….oh wait! donut holies! oh such a bad pun. but that was a delicious looking omelet. mmm, i heart eggs so freaking much.

Reply

Katelyn August 19, 2011 at 2:58 PM

Ahaahaha donut holies. It's fine i like it.

The Athletarian August 17, 2011 at 4:39 PM

Waffle or pancake station with boat loads of fruit and delicious toppings!!! That would be my pick! Are you eating eggs now? I fell off the whole vegan train too. My body started asking for something more than I was eating and I started to feel like I was going down that deprivation road again so I started to add some things…mostly organic Greek yogurt…but I have to put tons of things in it because the texture freaks me out! Hmmm maybe you can have a yogurt, granola and fruit bar!

Reply

Katelyn August 19, 2011 at 2:59 PM

Yesss I am! I am literally eating like everything. And I kinda really like it. The Greek yog still weirds me out a bit but eggs and cheese are fine cause they don't leave a weird taste in my mouth :)

Hi! My name is CJ, I am also attending HLS and wanted to "pre-introduce" myself! I am really looking forward to a weekend with people with such similar interests! and I cant wait to read more of your blog :-)
If i were going to a brunch, hands down french toast or pancakes, with nut butter, berries and some greek yogurt. May sound like a weird combo, but it is pretty much amazing!

Katelyn August 19, 2011 at 3:00 PM

Woooo hay CJ!!! Can't wait to see you! French toastttt :)

PANCAKESSSS FOR BRUNCH! My faveee. Totes hate the "body needs to rest but I worked out anyway" days. I get a crappy workout and waste a 4:30am wakeup!

Katelyn August 19, 2011 at 3:02 PM

Seriously!!! I flooped around and watched Hulu and Soul Surfer instead. I'm over it.

feerlessfood August 17, 2011 at 10:45 PM

That looks awesome-sauce! You nailed the recipe, although I don't really like grape tomatoes. Are you ready for runny yolks yet? Try Eggs in Purgatory! Lindsay (CotterCrunch) has a great recipe for it!

And again, congrats on the job, even though I knew

Katelyn August 18, 2011 at 1:24 AM

Ickkkky I prefer my yolks cooked and FLUFFY ;)

True story. You'll have to make me some!

Before a religious service, something light would be good because usually people eat after the service. Not too meaty, I would say. Good luck!! :)

Reply

Katelyn August 19, 2011 at 3:02 PM

Thanks girl!! I'll keep that in mind :)

sproutybuns August 18, 2011 at 7:53 AM

For some reason church brunch always reminds me of donuts :) I'd go with fresh fruit, muffins, pastries and other finger foods. Before any type of event people are more likely to walk around and socialize than sit down and eat.

Katelyn August 19, 2011 at 3:02 PM

Ahahahha mee too! That is so true. Thanks for the reminder!

Lolzthatswim(andRun) August 18, 2011 at 8:40 AM

Uh can pancakes be the standard meal all the time? Ha. That omelet does look like the bomb.com. My favorite omelets are greek omelets with spinach, olives all that jazz. Maybe it's because I'm still on the quest for a greek man but that is another story ha. ;)

Reply

Katelyn August 19, 2011 at 3:03 PM

Um yes. It was sooo good. I hate olives but I'll try iwth spinach :) I NEED A GREEK MAN let's go to Greece and find some togevvaa!

You can make anything into a verb, FYI. Brunch? French toast is good (and easy to do for a crowd if you bake it)….a good coffee cake always goes over well too. And don't forget the FRUIT!

Reply

Katelyn August 19, 2011 at 3:04 PM

I totes magotes can — I just verbify everything. WOOO just made verb into a verb!!
