Broccoli & Cheese Omelet

Broccoli and Cheese Omelet | A lovely way to start the day with broccoli sweet peppers, and almonds #recipe #omelet #broccoli

I love trying recipes from fellow Secret Recipe Club members and sharing them here on the blog. I, of course, do that once a month for my reveal day post, but I also love to peruse other groups' blogs other than my group, Group D. This recipe comes from Cindy of Hun...What's For Dinner? who is in Group A. I modified it to using 2 whole eggs, instead of 1 egg and 2 egg whites, but otherwise I kept it pretty much how Cindy made it. I have always loved broccoli and loved eating cheese on broccoli, so I knew I would love this recipe. I adore the almonds in the omelet. They add a nice crunchy texture that is otherwise missing in this omelet, but they don't overwhelm it with an unpleasantness by any means. I was very skeptical about adding them, but I wanted to be a teensy bit adventurous and I am very glad that I was. Thanks, Cindy, for a wonderful recipe!

Broccoli and Cheese Omelet | A lovely way to start the day with broccoli sweet peppers, and almonds #recipe #omelet #broccoli

  2. Remove broccoli mixture and set aside. Swipe the small skillet clean and add butter. Melt over medium low heat.
