Tomato, mozzarella, and basil have been a very present combination in my diet lately. And they sure did make for a delicious omelet! In December, my husband and I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary and he got me an AeroGarden as a gift. I have had problems with the chipmunks eating my plants, so I was so incredibly excited that he got me one. I never would have purchased one for myself. The first set of pods I planted in my AeroGarden was a herb variety that included two basils (that are still going strong on my porch out of the AeroGarden), parsley, chives, cilantro, and dill. I just started a salsa set of pods, but I was so excited the basils did so well and have continued to grow because basil is my favorite. It has made me want to make all the fresh basil recipes I can.

I was assigned Our Eating Habits for Secret Recipe Club at some point and had saved this recipe to try at some point, even though I didn't pick it for reveal day. My basil was going crazy and I remembered I had a caprese-style omelet that I could make and all the ingredients to make it. So voila! It was delicious. So so delicious!

What you need:
  • 1 Tbsp. butter
  • 2 eggs
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella
  • 1 roma tomato, diced
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh basil, chopped
Directions:
  1. Melt butter in a small skillet over high heat and make sure it coats the bottom by moving your pan around. 
  2. Meanwhile, beat eggs and season with salt and pepper. Add to pan.
  3. Turn heat down and scrape the sides to allow uncooked eggs to run down.
  4. Place half the cheese, tomato, and basil on one half of the eggs in the pan. Flip the other half to cover the filling. 
  5. Top the omelet with the other half of the cheese and basil. Cover with a lid and cook until eggs are done and cheese has melted.
  6. Serve topped with remaining tomatoes.

    Not at all similar to this recipe, but still one of my favorites, this Jalapeno Popper Quiche is spicy and I could eat the whole thing if I didn't have any self control. Another omelet recipe that I have been wanting to try is this Chili Cheese Omelet from Food Lust People Love. I think the concept is brilliant.
