Cinnamon Apple Omelet

Yum, yum! We loved this different kind of omelet! I am always looking for ways to get my husband eat eggs other than with bacon and cheese on toast. This recipe is totally different from any other I've tried and we all really liked it.

  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 medium Granny Smith apple -- peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 Tablespoon sour cream (we used cream cheese because my hubby doesn't like sour cream. You could probably use plain yogurt as well :)
  • 1 Tablespoon cream
  • 1 Tablespoon brown sugar (I use maple syrup, but you really don't need much because the apples are sweet enough by themselves :)
  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Beat eggs with cream until fluffy; set aside.

In a large skillet/frying pan, melt half (1 teaspoon) of the butter. Add apples, cinnamon and brown sugar. Saute until tender -- stirring often. Empty contents to a bowl or plate and set aside.

Clean the frying pan. Melt remaining butter. Pour in egg mixture. Cook as you would an ordinary omelet. When eggs are 90 percent set, flip the omelet. In the center of the open-face omelet, spread the sour cream and top that with most of the apple mixture.

Fold omelet and transfer to a plate. Top with remaining apple mixture.
