While looking through the cafe’s recipe menu I was really surprised to see that I hadn’t posted an omelette recipe. That’s crazy because omelettes are the perfect for cooking at college.
They’re inexpensive and easy to make. You can add just about any vegetable or meat (if you’re a meatarian) you want to them. And don’t just think of omelettes as weekend breakfast food. They’re great for a quick weeknight dinner too! Once you get the hang of making them you’ll be able to whip off a protein-rich omelette in no time!
Speaking of omelettes for dinner, this Pepperoni Pizza Omelette recipe could have easily been stirred into the new cup of recipes I’m brewing but there’s already a killer Omelette Quesadilla recipe in there.
Good thing! Now I can pop this pizza version on the menu! Enjoy!
Tip – If you’ve worked hard all summer to stay fit, and aren’t keen on the nutrition numbers I’ve posted above, simply skip topping this omelette with pepperoni and choose another vegetable instead. Without the pepperoni you save yourself 100 calories and 8 grams of fat. It still tastes great without it!
