Last night I made our usual Friday night breakfast for dinner. I made something new and simple. I’ve wanted to try it for a few weeks, but it just didn’t fit into our menu. I saw a recipe similar to this on a blog a while back, which gave me the idea, but I don’t remember where now 😛 So I didn’t actually use a recipe. And it’s not really much of a recipe. But I still thought I’d share since we thought it was good. Eggs and avocado always go well in my opinion. If you can make an omelet, you can make this. It wasn’t my best execution of an omelet ever (as the picture shows), but it still tasted great 🙂 That’s what counts.
Avocado Cheddar Omelet
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup shredded cheddar
1/4 avocado, diced
salt and pepper to taste
butter for cooking
Whisk eggs, milk and seasoning. Heat small skillet over low heat. Melt butter in pan. Add egg mixture. Let cook until mostly set. Add cheese and avocado to half of the eggs. Fold omelet in half. Let cook a few more minutes, until fully set.
I’ve made cream cheese avocado omelets and frittatas a few times. I got the idea from the Schwarzbein Principle books. I bet cheddar is good, too!
