After yesterday's heart attack on a plate I figured I had best redeem myself (and my arteries) with some vegetables. Now don't think I am getting all healthy on you... there is still taco meat and sour cream and cheese to counteract all the healthy affects those veggies may have! Safety first!

You will have to work a little harder for this omelet today. But I promise the extra effort is SO worth it. And we are gonna switch up the OG omelet method just a bit! Keeping you on your toes today!


**I strongly urge you to not skip sauteing your vegetables. This process not only helps keep the texture more desirable but the saute really bring the flavors to life.

**ALSO... this will be a difficult omelet to flip due to it being heavier. COOK AT A LOWER TEMPERATURE THAN NORMAL. This will ensure a well cooked (but not scorched) and more easily flippable omelet.



1 green onion
orange bell pepper
yellow bell pepper
zucchini squash
taco meat
cheddar cheese
sour cream
3 eggs
2 tbs butter
pat o butter
salt and pepper to taste
splash of milk

You will need:  One additional pan! WOW! Two pans? It's such a risky morning!!!

Wash and Prepare your veggies first! Slice onion (use the green ends as well!) and peppers to desired size (smaller is preferable) and set aside. Using a cheese grater, grate desired amount of zucchini onto a paper towel. Fold you paper towel in half and press out as much moisture from the zucchini as possible. Set aside.
Pre heat a pan and melt butter. Add all veggies and saute until onions are clear, OR to desired consistency. Remove from heat and set aside. Prepare your eggs, salt, pepper and milk into your normal omelet mixture... but THIS TIME!  OOHHH.. ADD the veggies directly into the eggs and whisk until blended in!  Pour into preheated and well buttered pan and cook on a LOW to MEDIUM HEAT. Be patient with this one! It's gonna take a little longer to cook, but as read above it's necessary. Microwave your taco meat. Flip your omelet, add cheese and filling. Fold, and garnish with a little cheese and a dollop of fresh sour cream!

Oooh isn't that pretty? All, colorful and whatnots.

Chopped and Prepped for butter immersion!

Yeah, it looks alot like fake rubber vomit. Let's just hope it doesn't taste like it!

I am a little proud of myself for not destroying this one on the flip!

Stuffed to the gills with lots of THRILLS!!!

Wow. This is really beautiful. I had a hard time eating it. NO... that's a total lie. I inhaled it.

#*#*#*#* TIP OF THE DAY: Use a WIIIIDE spatula for the flip of the omelet! It covers more surface area and will make it easier to get a good flip and reduce tearing.  #*#*#*#

NOMS NOMS NOMS NOMS NOMS NOMS NOMS  NOMS NOMS NOMS. To date, my MOST FAVORITE OMELET EVER. Just *sniff*  so *sniff sniff* OMG I can't even talk about it right now. *Sniff*  Just make it and you will see. *Sniff*  *Sniff* I am too overcome with emotion. *Sniff*

If you even make just ONE just ONE of my omelets, this should be the one.
