Mushroom Omelet

Mushroom Omelet

Is there anything more wonderful in the morning as a breakfast omelet?

There’s something so sunny about omelets that make me happy to get up and get going!

Even though this week I don’t have classes due to law break, I’m still working hard studying, writing, and compiling class outlines. So I wish it could be a laid back week, but that’s just not going to happen. However, I am sleeping in later than usual, feeling lazy in that regard!

But for all things enjoyably lazy, take a listen to the jazz classic “Up a Lazy River” performed by Louis Armstrong.

Mushroom Omelet


  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons chopped red pepper
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 3 large mushrooms (about 1½ inches across cap)
  • Dash cayenne pepper
  • Dash ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons hot pepper cheese
  • 2 teaspoons Parmesan cheese, grated


  1. In a small bowl, beat together eggs and water with a whisk. Set aside.
  2. Spray a small frying pan with vegetable spray. Over medium heat, saute onions and red pepper until slightly tender. Set aside in on a small plate.
  3. Place teaspoon of butter in hot pan over medium heat. Slice mushrooms into about four slices and drop into hot butter.
  4. Sauté until golden and crispy. Moisture should be evaporated and butter should be absorbed. Put on same plate with onions and red peppers.
  5. Spray a crepe pan with vegetable spray. Place over medium heat.
  6. Pour whisked eggs and water onto heated crepe pan.
  7. When bottom of eggs are solidified but not browned, flip over. (Most omelets are not flipped but this additional step cooks the eggs thoroughly.)
  8. Quickly sprinkle cayenne pepper, black pepper, Parmesan cheese, and hot pepper cheese over the top out to the edges.
  9. Spread over half of the circle the onions, red peppers, and mushrooms.
  10. Fold omelet in half. Serve.
