I love making omelettes on Sundays. That seems to be the one day of the week where are have a few more moments for family time. Why not make it special with a delicious, quick and easy meal that everyone will enjoy. It just takes a few minutes of prep and you will have enough for a crowd in no time.
First, let us get this out of the way! Some people spell it Omelet, while others spell it Omelette. Guess what, they are both right.
According to a few online dictionaries, an omelet (or omelette) is a type of egg dish that is frequently served as a breakfast or brunch entrée. However, neither spelling is wrong, but there are some guidelines for when to use which. Omelet is the standard spelling in American English. Whereas the British spelling, omelette, is the modern French spelling. So, there you have it. The next time you are wondering about the spelling, either one will do.
Today, this is a steak, cheese, and mushroom egg omelette; however, this recipe is perfect for a wide variety of additions. See what leftovers you might have in the refrigerator. Clean it out before you go shopping for the week.
This loaded veggie omelette is the same recipe that is served at a local National Food Chain Restaurant. If you like vegetables and cheese in your egg recipe, then this one is for you.
Brunch Can Be Easy, Healthy, and Delicious!
Recipe Variations to Ingredients
Here are a few ideas to help you think about recipe options. At our house, everyone has their favorite additions to the omelette and special toppings too.
Let us look at the ideas:
Steak-tenderloin, rib eye or any other tender beef that is cubed and cooked to a medium-rare. Overcooking tends to toughen the meat.
Pork – pork is a wonderful option for this recipe.
Chicken – the chicken can be diced and cooked or leftover rotisserie chicken would be a quick option for this omelette.
Sweet peppers – green, yellow, or red are all mild and wonderful in this recipe
Cheese – mozzarella, cheddar, Colby, Monterey jack, asiago, parmesan, Romano, or even swiss are all delicious cheese choices that would work well here. Just yes please to any type of cheese!
Mushrooms – of course and all kinds.
Onions – think about green onions, Vidalia sweet onions, red onions, or even your everyday yellow onion work well.
Spinach – is wonderful in a wide-variety of recipes such as soups, and salads. However, did you know that they would be delicious in an omelette too? When cooked, the leaves will become wilted and they add a delightful freshness to the egg recipe.
Hash browns – to be honest, I am not a fan of potatoes in my omelette. I prefer to have them on the side. However, my husband and son-in-law think it is exactly right. So, if you happen to have some leftovers, go ahead, and add them. You never know if your family will like something until you try it.
Now that you have some ideas of what to add to your omelette, we can discuss seasonings.
Today, I used just salt and pepper. However, you can really jazz up this egg recipe with heat if you wish. Add a bit of chili powder, cayenne, or hot sauce.
One more topic to cover before we get to the basic recipe for today. Sauces and toppings.
I have used teriyaki sauce in the past with the pork. That is a great combination.
Another great addition is salsa. It adds just the right amount of heat and freshness at the same time. I like to add about a teaspoon on top of the omelette.
Ideas for topping off your omelette: diced tomatoes, thinly sliced green onion, and of course, more shredded cheese. I have also seen people use fresh parsley diced fine.
Steak, Cheese, and Mushroom Egg Omelette ready for someone special in my family to enjoy.
Steps to Making an Omelette
I like to prep my ingredients ahead of time. This helps the whole process go much quicker. If using leftover ingredients for the filling, they are already cooked, so all I have to do is dice up the fixings and heat them through in a skillet. Then set aside until they are used in the omelette.
On the other hand, if I am using fresh ingredients for the filling, I prep the items and cook them in the skillet. Again, they are set aside until I am ready to use them in the egg dish.
Today, I used steak, onions, and mushrooms. In a non-stick skillet, add some olive oil and your ingredients. Cook stirring occasionally until caramelized. Remove from skillet and set aside.
In the same pan, add a tablespoon of butter. Once melted, add the eggs that have been whisked with a fork. Season with salt and pepper. The edges should immediately begin to set. Tilt pan so that all parts of the egg cook evenly. It should become less and less watery from the outside edges in. When the top of the egg has thickened enough that little liquid remains, you can either flip it with a spatula, or start placing the filling on one side. (This should take about 3-4 minutes). Turn down heat to medium.
Fold the fried egg over the ingredients and cook approximately one minute, just to reheat the filling. Slide the omelette out of the skillet onto a serving plate. Top with shredded cheese.
Enjoy serving this with your favorite side dish.
