It’s Sunday, it may seem cliché, but it’s my favorite day of the week.  The only day my family and I gather together for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.  Today’s breakfast is particularly special.  The last Sunday Breakfast in NJ, so it has to be perfect.  I am treating them with my favorite shrimp and veggie omelet.  Sometimes, I use this recipe for lunch and even dinner.  It’s delicious, filling, and simple to make as usual.

 

Next week, my family and I will start a new adventure, a new chapter, a new beginning, a new state.  I will resume sharing my table with you, once, we settle.

Marjie’s Shrimp and Veggie Omelet

Ingredients

3 eggs

1tbs water

Salt and pepper

1tbs butter

1 green bell pepper, diced

1 large tomato, diced

1 cup cooked shrimp

2tbsp cheddar cheese

2 tbs green onions (I did not use today)

1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

1tsp pepper flakes

1 tbsp of Feta cheese optional

Fresh parsley (I used dry parsley flakes)

Preparation

Heat olive oil in a skillet, add pepper, onions, and tomatoes, salt and pepper.  Cook for 2 minutes or until the onions are transparent.  Add shrimp, cook until they turn pink.  Then set aside.

Mix together the eggs, water, salt, and pepper

Over a medium-high flame, heat the butter in an omelet pan.  Add the eggs to the pan.  Let it set for a few seconds, then, with a fork, work the cooked egg mixture from the sides to the middle, creating a center of cooked eggs.  Lift edges of omelet with a spatula, and tilt pan so that uncooked portion flows underneath.

Add the mixture (onion, tomatoes, pepper, shrimp) and the cheddar cheese in the middle.   Fold in half. Transfer omelet to a serving plate. Garnish with either fresh and dry parsley flakes and the feta cheese

 

Let me know if you enjoy this recipe,  Happy Sunday.

  1. It is a good thing you can add anthing to omelettes, I always prefer the Spanish one (with potatoes and onion) but I also make spinach and aspargus omeletes 🙂

  2. I’ve never seen shrimp in an omelet. Not sure I could tackle that first thing in the morning – not big on breakfast. But I’m sure that Feta tastes amazing in an omelet – never tried that either. Thanks for the ideas.

  3. I used to think that sundays are boring until I learned to love them. Every sunday I wake up make myself a massive cuppa and read a magazine or book for at least 30′. This self care moment hs changed my perspective!
