Gluten Free Western Cheese Omelet

GF Western Cheese Omelet

Comment: You can usually let your imagination run wild when preparing an omelet adding whatever comes to mind including meats, vegetables, mushrooms, cheeses, salsa, potatoes – it’s endless. But the end result should be a filling, tasty and satisfying meal to give you a good start on the day.
Cooking time:
25-30 minutes (see additional notes below on cooking)

Ingredients:Gluten Free Western Cheese Omelet
2 x-large eggs
½ cup chopped cooked ham or 3 slices cooked deli ham cut into small pieces
¼ sliced medium green pepper
¼ chopped white onion
½ diced medium fresh tomato
2 slices white American cheese
2 tsp milk
1 tbl bacon fat or vegetable oil
Salt & pepper to taste
2 tsp bacon fat or vegetable oil
Salt & pepper to taste

  1. In a 10”- 12” fry pan add 2 tbls bacon fat or vegetable oil and sauté the onion and green pepper until al dente.
  2. In a small bowl break two eggs, add milk and stir together then add onions, peppers, ham and tomato and gently stir together.
  3. Add the 1 tbl oil to the pan and flop in the egg mix which will spread out.
  4. Lay the cheese on the top of the egg mix, cover, and allow to cook until the cheese begins to melt and then flip one half of the omelet over the other half, cover for about 3 minutes being careful not to burn it (the heat should be medium/low). Uncover, flip the omelet, cover and cook 2 minutes longer or until the edges begin to brown.

Sides: Home Fries, Toast made from GF Bread

Additional Cooking Comments: Generally, cooking time depends on what you’re adding and what your sides will be. Cooked meats like ham or salami can be added right into the eggs and heated that way. Bacon or sausage has to be precooked before adding and that takes 20 minutes. A side of home fires takes 20 minutes so what you plan to add will determine the length of time it takes to prepare. But the omelet recipe below, including meat prep time, takes 30 minutes. We suggest using an oversized 12 inch fry pan that makes it easier to ‘flip’ the omelet without destroying it.
