Expert Tips

Add cooked shrimp or chicken for a flavor variation.

Directions

  • 1 Heat oil in a sauté pan. Add zucchini and jalapeño. Season with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Stir until zucchini has begun to brown. About 5 minutes. Set aside.
  • 2 Beat 2 eggs in a small bowl. In a separate skillet over medium heat add beaten eggs.
  • 3 Eggs should set immediately at edges. As eggs set, push cooked eggs towards the center letting uncooked portion flow underneath. Spoon shrimp zucchini and jalapeño mixture on egg and sprinkle with cheese. Fold egg in half.
  • 4 Cook for 2 minute more and place in a serving plate.
  • 5 Repeat with remaining ingredients.

Omelets are my favorite breakfasts because they are like blank canvases to me. I can customize to my mood and taste. The best part about this versatile breakfast is that it can be prepared quickly. This time, I wanted a vegetarian option and decided to make a better-for-me omelet filled with tasty zucchini and a little spice from freshly sliced jalapeños. This delicious breakfast is perfect for an early morning breakfast or a late Mother’s Day brunch. Pair it with a refreshing glass of orange juice, a mimosa or a cup of strong black coffee. It’s a great outdoor meal for everyone to enjoy.
