How to Make a Cheese Omelette

Feel free to get creative by adding your favorite herbs and spices or low-carb vegetables. This low-carb recipe is a nice starting base for you to expand. It also goes great with Tomatillo Avocado Salsa and Homemade Raw Sauerkraut.

I cook in butter, but you can also use olive oil or coconut oil if you prefer.

3 cheese omelet

Ingredients

Butter – Choose grass-fed butter, if you can

Eggs – Opt for free-range, pastured eggs or raise them yourself!

Cheddar – Adds a sharp flavor

Mozzarella – You want to use cheeses that melt well

Parmesan – Finish the cheese combo off with a matured aged cheese 

Salt & pepper – Use to taste. These are my favorite types of gourmet salt.

Directions

Warm the butter over medium-high heat in a skillet or frying pan.

Crack the eggs in a bowl and whisk them until smooth. Mix in half the total amount of shredded cheese, plus salt and pepper to taste.

Pour eggs in the pan once it is warm. Let sit for 2 minutes until edges cook and eggs start to set.

Lower the heat until egg is almost cooked through. Add the remaining cheese down the center of the omelette. Keep the heat low so you don’t overcook the cheese omelette. The low temperature will prevent finishing with a dry, crispy edge.

Use a spatula and fold the omelette in thirds by bringing the two sides to the center.

Remove from heat and serve hot. If you prefer a well-cooked finish, flip the folded omelette over and continue cooking to your liking.
