It's that time of year again. We have a super abundance of squash, so they are beginning to be incorporated into every meal! This omelette is so delicious, the pickiest eaters will probably love it.

How to Make SUMMER SQUASH OMELETTE

Step-by-Step

  1. In a small bowl or cup, thoroughly whisk together eggs and small pinch of salt (I prefer black truffle or wild porcini salt, but you may use plain salt.) Set aside.
  2. In a small nonstick skillet, over medium heat, melt butter.
  3. Add julienned zucchini and/or yellow squash; saute for approximately one minute, until just beginning to lightly brown.
  4. Add thinly sliced spring onion; saute until vegetables are soft and lightly browned.
  5. Pour beaten eggs evenly over the veggies.
  6. Sprinkle with 1/2 of the chives; cook over medium/medium-low heat until eggs are mostly set, yet slightly jiggly/loose on top.
  7. Sprinkle evenly with mozzarella and asiago cheeses and bacon bits (if using.)
  8. Working from one side to the other, use a spatula to lift the edge and turn 1/3 of the omelette toward the center; place spatula under omelette and fold over onto remaining edge; slide onto warm serving plate.
  9. Sprinkle with remaining chives and a bit of grated cheese and bacon bits, if desired. Serve hot or warm.
