3-Step Recipe: Pimiento Cheese Omelet

Spice up your morning routine with this quick and easy recipe! This omelet is made with fresh, simple ingredients and pimiento peppers for added heat. To complete your meal, add a sliced orange and a freshly brewed cup of coffee. It's the perfect way to start your day.

Serves: 1
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons shredded extra sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 tablespoon drained pimientos
  • Pinch of salt and pepper
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh chives

Directions:

1. In small nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add eggs and let stand until edges of omelet just start to set. Working quickly, gently push cooked edges of eggs toward center of pan with rubber spatula, then tilt pan so that still-liquid eggs take the place of what was pushed to center. Repeat around edge of omelet until no more liquid egg remains.

2. When top of omelet is almost set, sprinkle bottom half with cheese, pimientos and salt and pepper. Fold top half of omelet down over fillings and let cook 1 minute or until eggs are completely cooked and cheese is melted. Transfer to plate and serve topped with chives.
