Vegetable Omelette Recipe
I call this recipe “Garden Vegetable Omelette” because you can throw into it as many garden or farmers market veggies in it as you can fit. This mixed vegetable omelette can be tweaked depending on the season or your taste.

How to Make a Perfect Omelette
There’s a few keys to a perfect veggie omelette. You need a good egg recipe. You need to have the right size pan. You need to know when’s the exact time to flip one side over. I’m here to help you with all of this.
Ready to make a delicious Vegetable Omelette? Let’s go!
First, cut up your veggies. You want to cut them pretty small. If the vegetables are too big your omelette might fall apart and we don’t want that. This is about 2 tablespoons of diced tomatoes, green peppers and a handful of broccoli. If some of it doesn’t fit, that’s ok, you can just throw it on the omelette when you serve it.
For each omelette you’ll need 2 eggs. Here’s the super important part. Pan size! I am using a 8 inch pan which I feel is just right for a omelette that we’ll be filling. The 8 inches give the 2 eggs just the right amount of room to build a not too thick, not too thin omelette. If you use a larger pan and start to throw veggies in it, there’s a high chance your omelette will break when you flip it over.
Now you’re going to make the egg mixture, this is based on my favorite scrambled eggs recipe. Once you find the perfect recipe you don’t mess with it. It’s eggs, a little milk, salt and a dash of pepper. Easy.
Throw a little butter in your pan over medium high heat.
Once the butter is melted and you can see it’s sizzling, add your egg mixture. Now it’s time to be patient. Look carefully at the edges of the eggs. Are they starting to thicken up? How about the middle? Does it still look wet? If so, give it more time. On average I’d say mine takes 4-5 minutes.
Add a sprinkle of cheese to one side of the omelette.
Add your vegetables and another small sprinkle of cheese on top of the cheesy side of the omelette.
Now grab your spatula. This is super important as it’s time to flip one side. This is make or break. Push your spatula gently underneath. If it comes up clean and the omelette seems that it won’t fall apart, then flip the one side over to the other, on top of your vegetables. If the eggs still seems runny or you start to flip it and a hole appears, remain calm and give it a few more minutes. This is all about patience and waiting until the time is right.
And when the time is right, flip it over, hold your spatula on the top, pushing down gently and keep on the burner for one more minute. Be sure to admire how nicely browned your omelette is!
Omelettes are the perfect Saturday breakfast food for us. Even though they don’t take that long to make, on slow weekend mornings we aren’t in any rush in the kitchen. We can make the perfect omelette, pour a cup of coffee, let the kids play and just relax.
Hope you enjoy this Veggie Omelette!
