Tomato Arugula and Feta Cheese Omelette

Tomato Arugula Feta Omelette - Digifood BlogThe secret to my cooking is taking leftover ingredients and whipping them into something special.  I don’t go to the store to get elaborate ingredients for my recipes – it’s just not my style.  I love the challenge of coming up with something different and unique each time I cook.  The leftover ingredients are still fresh, they might just be a small amount leftover from the last time they were used in a recipe.  Gotta use it up – it’s just who I am.

This time, my leftover ingredients were tomato, arugula and feta cheese.  I also had a lonely shallot in the bottom drawer of my refrigerator.  Still fresh, just leftover.Tomatoes and Arugula - Digifood - Blog

I love fresh arugula, and I love arugula in a cooked dish – not enough to wilt it, but to still keep that nutty crisp freshness intact.  An omelette is a perfect vehicle for that.

Not, there’s not much of a recipe for an omelette, it’s just an egg in a pan that you keep lifting around the sides to create a flat eggy wrap for your center ingredients.

I chopped the tomatoes in advance, and I also chopped up some shalloty goodness in there as well.  I could have used onion, but I had a leftover shallot – adding a nice sweet flavor to the mix.  I might just use it now on in my eggs, after all!

I cooked the tomatoes and shallots in the pan first, to soften them and caramelize the shallots.  Then I removed them from the pan and put them in a small plate to hold for my next step.

Cook the eggs in a pan – I used egg beaters, but if you want to just mix up a couple of eggs in a dish, you can do that, too.  Your call.

When the egg is still a little wet in the center so the ingredients will stick to the egg, I added my ingredients.

Tomatoes, first, then shallots.  I had a box of crumbled feta cheese that I just poured on.

Arugula I always add last – this way, it’s on top, and will peek out of your omelette.

Salt and pepper to your liking, and season with your favorite herb.

My favorite herb to use with eggs is dill.  It just goes together so nicely, and with the arugula’s nutty crunch, this omelette is sure to be a hit any time of day.  Enjoy!Tomato  Arugula Feta Omelette, Opened - Digifood Blog
