spanish omelet – my version

You know that moment of panic/dread/disgust that happens around four o’clock each afternoon? Food panic. I’m usually pretty good about keeping a weekly menu to avoid such calamities. Yes, I am one of THOSE people who actually makes a menu – but only to avoid calamities. One little problem…

Mr. W does the grocery shopping – at least he did while he was home for eight months. Now he’s gone and I suck at grocery shopping. After the woe is me episode passed, I said to myself, “Self, get a grip! Grow up! Cook something!”

This is my emergency, use what you have, very delicious recipe for a Spanish omelet.



Heat a skillet with a little olive oil swirled around the bottom.
Add your egg mixture.
Spread the cheese and other ingredients across half of the eggs.
Once the bottom has firmed up a bit, fold in half.
Tip: Two spatulas do the job better than one!

I top it off with a little more cheese, salsa, and sour cream.


What does one drink with a dinner omelet?
Milk? Coffee? Blue Moon with a slice of orange?

  1. That’s beautiful!! Looks delicious and also looks like you had intended to create something fancy all along… no one would have known the difference! 🙂 *Ice cold milk :)))

  2. Don’t feel badly, Jenni. I live less than five miles from Mrs. Waterstone and I had no clue what Blue Moon was, either. Apparently I am poorly schooled with it comes to beers. But then, my answer for the drink would have been a tall glass of milk.

  3. Gosh, this looks so good Lori!
    If I were having this in the morning, I am sure it would be coffee, but for dinner? Definitely a glass of wine.
