Healthy & Hearty Cheddar Omelette

Okay, sometimes I really just need a plump Sunday breakfast. Well, almost every Sunday I feel this way. Again, my philosophy is to use whatever is in my fridge.  I wanted something pretty healthy yet hardy and something my husband would eat as well (this can be a challenge).  We had a tomato, cheddar, white beans, basil, and broccoli.  Sold!  15 minutes later breakfast was served with some additional sides, not to mention a delicious bellini (prosecco and peach puree) to help wash down the delectable omelette delight. What a way to start my Sunday.  In my opinion, the only way one should begin their Sunday.  Now go cook your way into a relaxing end of your weekend!

Ingredients
  1. 4 eggs
  2. Small handful of basil - chopped
  3. 1/4 C cheddar cheese - diced
  4. Approx. 10 broccoli florets - diced
  5. 1 small tomato
  6. 1/2 15 oz can of white beans
  7. Shallot - diced
  8. Pinch of red pepper flake
  9. Salt & pepper to taste
  10. Olive oil for pan
Optional sides
  1. 6 strawberries
  2. 2 english muffins
  3. 4 hashbrowns
Instructions
  1. Heat pan on low with olive oil. Add shallot and cook for about 3 minutes
  2. Add broccoli, white bean, tomato, salt & pepper, red pepper flake. Cook for 3-5 minutes
  3. Remove from pan, keep heat on, and re-oil
  4. Crack 2 eggs and lightly scramble. Add cheddar, pinch more salt & pepper, basil, and all other ingredients you've just cooked
  5. When bottom becomes lightly browned, fold omelette in half and briefly cook on both sides until egg center is fully cooked
  6. Do the same again for the other omelette. If you can do two pans at once or have a griddle I recommend doing this. Both omelettes will be perfectly hot and ready to eat together.
  7. Add side dishes and garnish with whole leaves of basil (optional)
Notes
  1. When I have brie cheese in the fridge I sometimes replace the cheddar. I love brie and basil together!
