Cheesy Mushroom and Cheddar Omelette

Cheesy Mushroom and Cheddar Omelette

Maybe this blog should be called Naked Mushroom rather than Naked Brownie. I’ve posted a bunch of mushroom recipes, but I haven’t posted any brownie ones yet. Oh, the irony…

This is my most favourite savoury weekend recipe and my husband is actually the master chef behind it. It’s now been 4 years since I have been making this omelette any other weekend and I’ll be honest with you: his is still better. There, I said it. But mine is quite good too, and until I’ll get him to reveal his culinary secrets, this is the next best thing. So, enjoy!

P.S. This is the most deliciously cheesy omelette and if there is an omelette Heaven, this omelette is St. Peter.

P.P.S. I think I’ve just paved my way to hell.

Prep time: 10 min

Cook time: 45 min

Serves 2

Ingredients

  • 450gr mushrooms (thinly sliced)
  • 1/2 bowl (1 cup) grated mature cheddar
  • 1/2 diced onion
  • 50gr butter
  • 3 eggs

Method

  • In a pan, heat the butter at medium heat until melted
  • Add the onion and let it cook until golden (approx. 2-3 min)
  • Add the mushrooms, cover with a lid and let them simmer at medium heat until the liquid they release evaporates completely (approx. 20 min). Don’t worry if it seems like there’s too many mushrooms, once cooked, they will reduce in size.
  • In the meanwhile, beat the eggs and add salt, oregano & fresh pepper then have your grated cheese ready
  • Next, add the beaten eggs on top of the mushrooms and make sure they spread uniformly across the surface of the pan. Cook at low heat for 10 min, without covering with a lid, until the top of the omelette is nearly done. There’s no need to turn the omelette upside down.
  • Now spread the cheese on top of the omelette and let it melt for about 10 more minutes, then serve with a side of salad or whatever floats your boat :) Enjoy!

Health Benefits

Eggs are an incredible superfood, highly nutritious and rich in vitamin A, folate, vitamin B5, selenium, phosphorus and more. Eggs contain a little bit of nearly every nutrient that our body needs and are a great source of protein, which is why they are so, so good for us! Having a high-protein breakfast every morning will keep you full for a longer time and help you lose weight on the long run.

Cheddar cheese is also full of flavour and goodness! It’s a great source of protein and calcium, which makes it good for your bones.

If you scroll down my blog feed, you’ll probably notice that a lot of my recipes contain mushrooms. That’s because I absolutely love their texture and the fact that they go well with so many foods. But that’s not all. Mushrooms are rich in selenium, vitamin D and antioxidants  which makes them great for your metabolism and immune system.
