I am so proud of The Hubby. He has been getting up at 5:00 AM three times a week to go to cross fit. Yes you read that right…he is doing CROSS FIT! Whats even more crazy is that he is loving it!
As part of The Hubby’s new morning routine he has been trying out some great breakfast options and this egg white omelette has become a favorite for him and me. It started out with just a little cheese and some turkey bacon and has turned into something that is not only delicious but is healthy, filling and so pretty. Yes I said pretty…it really is.
Over the last month or so The Hubby has perfected his omelette and so now I get to show you his hard work. To give it a ton of flavor he starts with chopped bell peppers, we buy the pre-chopped peppers from the grocery store to make it a little easier. He adds those to the skillet first and lets them cook until they just been to soften and then adds in the egg whites and spices. That alone would be good but then he adds in some crumbled turkey sausage, greens and the surprise a little goat cheese.

Yes there is goat cheese in this omelette…we love the tang and creaminess it adds to the omelette. We buy goat cheese crumbles in our deli which makes it super easy but really any cheese you prefer would work, such as some shredded cheddar, pepper jack or colby jack. Just be wanted according to The Hubby goat cheese is the best option (I promised I would say that).
Make your mornings or dinner something to remember with this healthy omelette that everyone is sure to love!
