Clean-out-the-veggie-bin Omelettes

Frittata and quiches are two great ways to clean out your veggie bin and use up leftover meat – omelets are another way.

There is no real recipe and the methodology is simple: Whisk a couple of eggs together with some salt, freshly ground black pepper, and a couple of tablespoons of sour cream and then toss in whatever you have available: green onions, cilantro, peppers, cheese, shredded chicken, or bacon.

The whisk-ins of choice this time:
- green onions
- sharp cheddar
- several slices roasted red bell peppers, drained
- sliced bacon, cooked and chopped

Pour your omelet into a pan and cook over medium heat. When the top is set, fold the omelet over itself in half (or fold it over each side just until it meets the center of the omelet and flip over). Remove from heat, top with hot sauce, sour cream, and/or fresh herbs and enjoy!

Hi. Came here through the foodie blogroll…. I am not a big fan of eggs. Infact, I avoid them all the time in my cooking. But your pic is pushing me to try it sometime. Lovely picture…. :)
