Omelets are as delicious as they are nutritious. Since eggs are their main ingredient, they pack tons of protein into every bite; many recipes also call for vegetables, which add loads more health benefits into the mix. They’re also super easy to make for breakfast!
Here are some of our personal favorite omelet recipes to get you started:
Easy Vegetarian Omelet With Bell Peppers, from The Spruce Eats. The red and green peppers (and optional onion) in this omelet add phenomenal bite and flavor. The Spruce Eats recommends trying variations on this recipe — such as using mushrooms or peas in place of the peppers — to keep things surprising.
Spanish Omelette, from Tasty. This recipe calls for thin slices of onions and potatoes. Before adding these vegetables to the eggs, you’ll fry them to caramelize them, which will bring out all their natural sugars and make this omelet even tastier. Just looking at the picture in this recipe makes us hungry!
Basic French Omelette, from The Incredible Egg. This omelet recipe is especially protein-heavy. To make it, you’ll use cheddar cheese or sliced ham — or both, if you’re feeling ambitious — as a filling. You’ll spread this filling atop one half of the egg mixture before folding it inward to get that beautiful, classic omelet shape.
Broccoli and Parmesan Cheese Omelet, from Eating Well. With both broccoli and cheese in this omelet, you can’t really do much better as vitamin, mineral, and protein intake goes. The shallots in this recipe add immense amounts of flavor to every bite — not that broccoli and parmesan are at all boring. Eating Well recommends serving this one with toast.
Easy Tomato Omelet, from Hurry the Food Up. Hurry the Food Up claims this recipe is “perfect every time.” We agree — this is one of the best omelet recipes we know of. Although the recipe uses cherry tomatoes for this omelet, we used a regular tomato here sliced up into small bits and we found it to be delicious!
Omelet with Turmeric, Tomato, and Onions, from My Recipes. This recipe combines a couple of ingredients from the previous recipes — tomato and onions — with turmeric and mustard seeds. My Recipe says to use green onions, but we’ve tried this one with shallots and it still holds up well.
Meat Lovers Omelet, from Genius Kitchen. For this omelet, you’ll use all three breakfast meat staples. Bacon, sausage, and ham mix with cheddar cheese for a start-of-day meal that any meat-eater will absolutely love. We like to add a tiny bit of chopped spinach and tomato to really round out the flavor and nutrition of this one.
Paula Deen’s Egg White Omelet Recipe, from The Food Network. Not everyone likes to keep the yolks in their omelets. For those folks, we recommend this egg white omelet recipe from a culinary legend. Although Paula Deen’s recipe entirely eliminates yolks, she includes spinach, tomato, and onion to make sure this thing is an absolute delight.
