Meat lover’s omelet

The best way to eat an egg!

This omelette is for all the nitpicky persons out there; the people who don’t eat tomatoes, or onions, or peppers. Instead of enjoying their meals are too busy picking out all the veggies, today we get right to the point; eggs, meat, cheese, done!

It’s quite common for me to make a delicious omelette filled with the works only to see someone removing tomatoes or onions in each bite. I’m not going to lie, I cringe at the sight. Only because I know what a grave disservice they do to themselves as those are the backbone of flavor in an omelette; to each his own. The omlette today would be their ideal, however in order to achieve the flavor with purely meat I decided to use different types that impart different characteristics. 

I used a sweet chicken apple sausage, hickory smoked beef sausage and Canadian bacon, each meat bringing something different to the table. In addition the smoked gouda added extra flavor. I thought about using a jalapeno cheddar or an aged cheddar instead but decided a smoked cheese would work with the meats rather than against them. I was right.

Ingredients (Printable recipe)

2 eggs
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon coconut oil or butter
½  apple Chicken apple Sausage chopped
½  Beef sausage link chopped
2 strips Bacon chopped
2 ounce smoked gouda

  • Chop the meat into small pieces
  • Beat the two eggs with the salt and black pepper
  • Shred the cheese
  • In a non-stick pan melt the butter or add oil on high heat
  • Sauté the meat in the oil until fragrant, about 1 minute
  • Pour the egg all over the meat pushing in with the spatula and allowing the runny egg  to seep to the edges (see video demo 2:00)
  • Once the egg is no longer runny reduce heat to low, cover and cook for 1 minute or until the top is firm
  • Once the top is firm flip the egg and add cheese to the center
  • Fold over and allow the cheese to melt
  • Serve
