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

1/4 sweet onion, chopped

1/4 gala apple, chopped

1 tablespoon butter

1/4 teaspoon salt

3 eggs

2 tablespoons milk

1 1/2 ounces sharp cheddar cheese

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. In a small bowl, whisk eggs and milk together. Pour over apple/onion mix and let set. Flip once. Add cheddar cheese in the middle and fold in half.


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!

    I have actually never had the apple cheddar combination, but this is enough to convince me! I made waffles the other day (I am addicted…I think I need a group) that was made of mostly egg and a little oatmeal for some body and they were so good. It made the waffle taste kind of custard like and with apples, it was perfect. Anyway, your omelet sounds delicious! I will definitely try this one out when I get some cheddar Daiya! I am off to vote for your friend! Have a great Sunday and for goodness sake…go get some bacon!

      I just save it. I don’t think you can buy it. At least I’ve never seen bacon fat for sale!

    Yummmm. Caramelised anything is awesome! I love it when I can burn things and just say they’re “caramelised”. :D (It would be so awesome if you could buy bacon fat. “Bacon grease! Fills all your requirements for saturated fact, trans fat, and polysaturated fats in half a serving!”)

    Mmm, this sounds like a winning combo. I don’t eat much cheese, but one of my favorite childhood combos was a granny smith and extra-sharp cheddar. I can only imagine how good the grown-up version must be!

    I love the apple cheddar combination! One of my favorite tricks for sneaking veggies into meals for non-veggie-lovers is masking the vegetable flavors with fruits. I don’t know how you feel about particular veggies, but the combination of tart granny smith apple slices and creamy melted cheddar does wonders to hide carrot slices or spinach leaves in grilled cheese sandwiches.
