Take your omelette/omelet game a little further with this easy cheese omelet recipe. A little bit of cheese makes all the difference in your omelet. Here is how to make an omelet with cheese plus there’s a giveaway near the end of this post!
Because of that meat post I decided to start visiting a farm around me to get eggs because eggs in my fridge are essential. You have no idea how safe I feel when I have eggs at home. It is very egg-citing! But when there are no eggs, I get nervous.
So I bought dozens of eggs to take care of all my egg needs. Since we have lots of eggs, time to have a little fun. Make some cheesy omelets/omelettes! In case you are wondering what the difference is, “omelet” is the American way of spelling it while “omelette” is the British way of spelling it. I spelled it as omelette all my life but since I now live and work in America, I’m going with omelet in this post.
I used blue cheese also known as bleu cheese to make my cheese omelette. When we moved to the United States, my sister-in-law gave me an advice about cheese. “Don’t buy blue cheese!” she said. And after reading on the internet about blue cheese, I totally understand why.
Blue cheese is not shy in its taste. It is sharp pungent and filled with blue veins which are actually mold. But a word like mold is not always a bad thing when it comes to food. The same way bacteria is actually needed for yogurt to be formed. I cringe when I say that but it’s bacteria that makes delicious yogurt. So the delicious mold gives this blue cheese its unique taste which is great in an omelet.
I particularly love the Salemville® blue cheese because it is made by an Amish community with no preservatives and cows that are milked by the Amish farmers. Talk about values! You can get this from any of the large stores in the US.
So here is what we need to make some easy cheesy omelet.
For the cheese omelet need eggs, salt, pepper, oil and some cheese.
Step 1: Place the eggs in a bowl and add the salt n pepper.
Step 2: Beat them together.
Step 3: Pour oil to heat up in a pan then add in eggs and let them set on low heat. Sprinkle cheese on top.
Step 4: Fold the egg into half and let it cook for about 1 more minute.
And that my friends is how to make an omelet with cheese. I love serving this with some whole wheat bread and some freshly chopped tomatoes and avocado. These all go so well together.
