Caramelized Apple and Cheddar Omelet.

You know I love the sweet and salty combination.

And I don’t really do omelets since they tend to be packed with veggies, though it is one way that I can force the veggies down – as long as a pound of cheese in involved.

And bacon of course.

I probably would have added bacon in this omelet, or at least on the side, except I am out of it.

I know. Blasphemy. There is not a slice of bacon in this household. Who am I?

I am in love with this flavor combination.

Sweet onions and apples, salty cheese – it is just perfect. Plus, onions are vegetables right? See, at least I ate a few.

Caramelized Apple and Cheddar Omelet

Directions:

Heat a skillet on medium heat and add butter. Add onions, apples, and sprinkle with salt. Saute until apples and onions and brown and caramelized, about 4-5 minutes.

You know what would make this even better? Browning the apples and onions in bacon grease. I am also out of that. But next time… watch out. That is exactly how this is being made.

I need your help! I’ve talked about my best friend’s baby, Morgan, before. She is my buddy. We get along so well because we both have chubby thighs and love to eat ice cream. She is in the running to be the new face of Gerber, and makes the cutest “fishy face” ever. Please vote for her!
