Eggs for dinner on a Friday night? Absolutely.
I was flipping through Skip the Dishes on my phone when my fingers lingered over the Denny’s logo. I was hemming and hawing over whether I should order in a Lumberjack meal or have an omelette.
I realized what a waste of money that would be when I have all the ingredients for an omelette in my fridge.
This was unexpectedly filling. If you serve with a side of fruit or toast, this recipe could easily feed two people.
- 3 large eggs
- 1 cup of sliced grape tomatoes
- 1 cup of zucchini
- 1.5 cups of summer sausage
- 1.5 cups of spinach
- 1 cup of white or green onions – diced
- 1 cup of Gouda cheese
- Olive oil or vegetable oil
- Spices: salt, pepper, garlic, basil
- Using a skillet, heat up some olive oil or vegetable oil on medium heat.
- Add in the onions and sausage and cook until sausage turns slightly brown. Add your choice of spices in this step.
- Add in tomatoes, zucchini and spinach. Let cook 2-3 minutes.
- Using a separate bowl, crack the eggs and beat with a whisk. You can add some milk but it isn’t necessary.
- Add the egg mixture to the skillet and mix with a wooden spoon.
- In the pictures below, you can see that I left the eggs on the bottom resulting in a “lazy half omelette”.
- Cook until the egg mixture is fully cooked or lightly brown.
- Top off with shredded Gouda cheese. Add more spices if desired – I topped this off with basil and a bit of garlic salt.
- Optional: serve with toast or a bowl of fruit.
