Meatless Monday – Mushroom and Swiss Omelet

We eat breakfast for dinner sometimes. And we love a good omelet. This one uses mushrooms – any kind you like – and swiss cheese. Swiss cheese has a sharp, nutty flavor that compliments the mushrooms better than most cheeses. It’s a delicious way to enjoy a vegetarian meal.

Here’s How to Do it:

Prep everything before you start cooking.

Wipe the mushrooms clean and slice thick (about 3 to 4 slices per mushroom).

Beat the eggs with the lemon pepper and water.

Grate the cheese.

Heat the olive oil in a skillet and sauté  the mushrooms until they are golden brown.

Remove the mushrooms from the pan and keep warm.

Pour the eggs into the hot pan and cook on low until the eggs start to set. Gently lift the eggs with a large spatula and flip.

Place the mushrooms and cheese on top of the omelet and continue to cook until the cheese starts to melt.

Fold the omelet and cut in half. Place each piece on a plate and garnish with green onions.

Eat while it’s hot. A salad makes a perfect side for a complete evening meal.
