Food For Friday

Sometimes weekends are a really good reason to take a little extra time to cook! Especially when it comes to breakfast, we usually have a little more time to make a nice meal, as well as more time to sit down and enjoy it.

So this weekend, how about giving this omelette a try? It is extra hearty with the addition of steak, but still only takes about a half hour to throw together!

This is a perfect breakfast for the morning after grilling, because it makes you can use up those little leftover pieces of meat! If you don’t have the meat already prepared, it will take a just a few extra minutes to cook it up before assembling the omelette.

I like omelettes as a way to break up the monotony of eggs by adding a lot of other tasty and healthy ingredients!

I hope you enjoy this hearty and delicious breakfast!
