Summer Garden Omelet Recipe

Summer Garden Omelet Recipe

Chock-full of fresh-picked garden flavor, this hearty omelet is cheesy, filling and ready in minutes. I often add chopped red pepper for color and variety. And for a light, extra-fluffy texture, try using 1/4-teaspoon of cornstarch per egg when mixing. Mary Relyea - Canastota, New York
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min. YIELD:2 servings


  • 1/2 cup chopped zucchini
  • 1/3 cup chopped onion

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

  • 1. In a 10-in. nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray, saute the zucchini, onion and green pepper in butter until tender.

"These look wonderful and I make mine in the zip lock steamer bags. I use one bag or the vegetables and then add it to eggs and cheese in the second bag. Microwave for 1.5 minutes. Fastest omelet in the west!"
