Blue Cheese (Wedge) Omelet

by Lauren

I’ve got your breakfast for today, tomorrow most likely the rest of the week!

And it’s all been inspired by the blue cheese wedge salad I had for dinner.

I was never, ever a fan of the infamous stinky blue cheese.

The intense flavor and strange moldy color always turned me off.

That was until the blue cheese wedge salad came into my life (thanks mom).

Now look at me, I’m putting blue cheese in my precious omelets for goodness sake.

And I like it! A lot…

Then again, pair anything with salty little bacon crumbles and I guess you can’t really help but enjoy it.

Really though, even if you think you hate blue cheese, try it with bacon!

And tomatoes. And onions. And avocado if you have one on hand.

The ooey, gooey, oh so savory and delectable omelet is good stuff.

Really good.

You better know by now that I could never tell a lie when it comes to good food!

 

Blue Cheese (Wedge) Omelet

Makes 2 omelets

Ingredients

5 eggs

1/4 cup of milk

1/3 cup tomato, chopped

2 tablespoons red onion, chopped

1/4 cup bacon, diced

1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese

1/2 avocado, sliced

Pepper

Directions

Whisk eggs with a splash of milk, set aside.

Sauté onions and bacon for 4-5 minutes or until bacon is cooked and onions are translucent, set aside.

Melt butter into a small non-stick skillet over medium-low heat. Pour half of the eggs into the hot pan. Add the half of the tomatoes, onions and bacon. Gently tilt the pan, rotating in a circular motion, allowing the liquid egg to spread around the pan and cook through.

Once it is almost cooked through, flip the egg “pancake”. Sprinkle half of the blue cheese into the center and let cook for about 30 more seconds. Slide the egg pancake out of pan and onto a plate, folding in half. Top with avocado slices.

Repeat with the rest of the ingredients for omelet #2!

  1. Oh yeah, this looks fabulous! I’m a huge blue cheese fan. Have you tried the new Kirkland Signature (Costco) blue cheese? It just came out, it’s domestic and really mild (of course a great price!) and some of the best I’ve ever had!

  2. Oooh, I LOVE blue cheese! My father was always a fan of blue cheese dressing and I love to surprise him with some sort of new blue cheese and make a bottle of home-made dressing for him…. This omelet looks delicious! I never thought about adding it to eggs!

  3. Blue cheese took a LONG time to grow on me. But it is the PERFECT thing to put on an iceberg wedge…along with some bacon…yum!

  4. Looks even better than the actual blue cheese wedge salad! Must make this soon!

  5. I’m definitely not a fan of blue cheese, but I’ll take your word on this one! Looks good!
