I think omelets are under-rated. It’s one of those things I never think of making, but the times that I make it I think to myself, “WHY DOES THIS NOT HAPPEN MORE OFTEN?”
I was looking through my fridge trying to figure out how I could effectively use my eggs, spinach and artichokes. I also knew I had tomatoes, olives and feta cheese. Something great has to come of these ingredients, right? I love the combining flavors of tomatoes, feta cheese and tomatoes and one of my favorite ways to eat those ingredients together is here in my recipe for Chopped Greek Kale Salad. It happened to be the morning so I knew I wanted some type of breakfast something instead of a salad. Well after just a couple of minutes I realized I could throw a few things together to create a Greek omelet! Similar ingredients but just into an omelet form!
The flavors of all of this are so amazing! I couldn’t get enough of this omelet that I made twice last week!
- 6 eggs, whisked
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- 1 cup spinach, lightly packed
- 1/4 cup kalamata olives, sliced
- 1/4 cup roasted red peppers, roughly chopped
- 1/4 cup marinated artichoke hearts, roughly chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 2 tablespoons crumbled feta cheese
- 1/4 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
- In a bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk until scrambled. Set aside.
- Heat 1 tablespoon of butter and olive oil in a large skillet to medium heat. Add spinach and garlic and sautee for about 30 seconds, or until spinach is wilted. Add roasted red peppers, artichokes and seasoning. Sautee for 1-2 minutes, or until veggies soften. Remove from pan and set aside.
- Pour in egg and milk mixture into pan and let it sit for about 30 seconds. Add the spinach mixture, tomatoes, olives, feta cheese onto half of the omelet. Add more seasoning if desired. Cook for 3-4 minutes, or until eggs fully cook. Fold omelet in half and scoop onto a plate.
- Top with extra feta cheese and toppings if desired.
