Wild Rice Mushroom Omelet Recipe

Publisher Photo
Since wild rice is plentiful here, I love to create recipes starring that crunchy staple. Pork sausage helps spice up the mild rice flavor in this hearty omelet, which is draped with a silky-smooth cheese sauce. You can easily serve it to guests with little last-minute fuss. —Bonnie Bourdeau Akeley, Minnesota

Directions

  1. In a large skillet, cook sausage over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Remove and set aside. In the skillet, saute onion and celery in butter until tender. Add mushrooms; heat through. Stir in the sausage, rice and parsley.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk eggs, water, salt and pepper. Heat an 8-in. nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium heat. Add 1/2 cup egg mixture. As eggs set, lift edges, letting uncooked portion flow underneath. When nearly set, spoon 1/2 cup of sausage-rice mixture over one side of eggs; fold in half and press down lightly for about 30 seconds. Remove and keep warm. Repeat to make six more omelets.
  3. For cheese sauce, melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in bouillon until dissolved. Stir in flour until smooth. Gradually add milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Reduce heat to low; stir in cheese until melted. Drizzle over omelets. Sprinkle with parsley if desired. Yield: 7 omelets.
