5-9: Swiss Cheese and Crouton Omelette

An old proverb states, “If you’re going to make an omelette, you’re going to have to break a few eggs.” This is another Simply Delicious recipe where I had a reading comprehension fail and had to get creative to fix it. I didn’t notice that I was making up two individual omelettes and accidentally tried to make a giant omelette all at once which didn’t go well. 🍳

5-9 Swiss Cheese and Crouton OmeletteAs the card states, it would be great for our next brunch. We had this dish on a night where we had breakfast for dinner. I made bacon to make it feel more breakfast-y. 🌇

5-9 Swiss Cheese and Crouton Omelette_Page_2I saw this “TIPS” section way too late. I accidentally put all the egg mix in a pan that could only cook half that much.

IMG_4277My “croutons” were these Baked Snack Sticks that we bought at the airport on our trip home from visiting my family. They were more than stale enough to fill the role croutons do in this recipe. The Swiss cheese was still coming down from frozen while this photo was taken.

IMG_4278Even though they were stale, I figured it wouldn’t hurt to toast the Snack Sticks in a little melted butter in the skillet.

IMG_4279I cracked all 7 eggs and added the Swiss cheese to the bowl and got to stirring.

IMG_4280After I added all the eggs into the pan, I poured half back into the bowl and added the croutons to the side of the omelette.

IMG_4281Because the cheese was in the egg mix, all that is left to complete the omelette is to flip the other side. Due to how much the cheese melted, my mixture clumped and broke into pieces.

IMG_4282Luckily, I had a chance to try again with omelette number 2…

IMG_4283…and I messed it up again on the flip.

IMG_4284With the final product shot, I was able to flip the omelette upside down to get an clean edge.

IMG_4285I served the final dish with a side of bacon and a cup of iced coffee. The omelette tasted good and was very filling, especially since it was mostly bread, egg, and cheese.
