Let the comfort food continue…When you have a little one at home, it is not always easy to prepare meals. My daughter is pretty good at playing independently, but for some reason as soon as I try to cook or do a household chore, she wants mommy. My time is as precious as my little girl.
I am a garbage cook. I love throwing together random leftovers to make a meal. It is quick & easy and it gets rid of leftovers. The other night I made Velveeta shells & cheese for Mai for supper. She refused to eat it. She claimed that it was too spicy. ??? Crazy kiddo. Sufficed to say, I had a lot of mac & cheese left. This morning, hubby was home & we were all able to have family breakfast together. SInce my husband is a big fan of mac & cheese, I thought it might be fun to throw it in an omelette for him & see what he thought.
How did my left over mac & cheese omelette rate? Let’s find out?
This recipe is for a family sized omelette.
4 large eggs
1 tbsp of water
About 1 cup of mac & cheese (heated)
1/2 cup of shredded cheddar
Garlic salt & pepper to taste
In a mixing bowl beat eggs, water, garlic salt & pepper. Spray a frying pan with spray. Add the egg to the pan & cook on medium low heat. When egg is cooked through add the mac & cheese and top with cheddar. Fold your omelette over & sprinkle with additional cheese if desired. Keep on the heat until the cheese melts.
My leftover mac & cheese omelette was a huge hit, My husband absolutely loved this. I might have to make some macaroni & cheese again just to recreate this delicious breakfast.
Here is one more of my favorite junk omelettes. This is a 4 egg omelette with left over meat loaf, a 1 1/2 tbsp of barbecue sauce & swiss cheese.
