Weekends are for sleeping in and enjoying a late, delicious breakfast! But this recipe is so easy, you can even enjoy for a weekday breakfast! My easy tomato, avocado and cheese omelette is filled with loads of cheese, smoky ham and diced tomatoes! Garnish this omelette with slices of tomato and avocado for the ultimate omelette experience!
The Best Fillings
For me, omelette fillings can make or break the recipe! For this easy omelette, I’m keeping things really simple and adding just a few filling ingredients. Feel free to change up the recipe and add your favorite fillings. Some recommendations include bacon, sausage, peppers, mushrooms and garlic.
First, heat a saute pan with a little bit of oil. Once the pan is hot, add the ham, tomatoes and shallot and saute for a few minutes. You want to cook the mixture until most of the tomato juices are evaporated. Let the filling cool slightly before using it for the omelette.
How to Make an Omelette
Once you have your fillings ready, it’s time to make the omelette! I recommend using a medium-sized pan for fluffier omelettes. First, whisk together the eggs and milk in a large bowl, season the eggs, then add the prepared fillings and some cheese. I like to add cheese to the batter and on top of the cheese omelette!
The secret to making a great omelette is cooking it slowly! Cook the eggs over medium-low heat and gently stir with a spatula, but only in the beginning! You want to create some structure with the eggs first, then let them cook away! I like to close the pan with a lid to cook the eggs quicker while keeping the heat low. When the eggs are almost done cooking, gently fold the omelette in half with a spatula and slide onto a plate! Top with more cheese, sliced avocado and tomato and enjoy!
