Valley Green's Sunday Brunch Spicy Omelet

Cindy DeVore


With 30 chickens living on the Valley Green Farm, we have lots of fresh eggs! Most often, we just use what's available in the fridge to come up with new "egg creations."

This super-simple omelet is a cheesy and delicious addition to any Sunday Brunch. Using homegrown, locally-sourced, or organic store-bought veggies is key to a great hometown fresh flavor. And remember, nothing makes an omelet more fluffy than farm fresh eggs!

How to Make Valley Green's Sunday Brunch Spicy Omelet


  1. In a medium skillet, heat butter over medium-high heat, and saute onions and mushrooms for about 2 minutes.
  2. Whisk in half and half to beaten eggs, and pour mixture over mushrooms and onions in the skillet.
  3. Add chopped tomatoes. Mixture should be bubbling gently. Reduce heat to medium-low. Season with a little salt and pepper.
  4. As mixture begins to cook around edges, sprinkle in the pinch of nutmeg and shredded pepperjack cheese.
  5. When cheese is melted and eggs are cooked, carefully lift one side of the omelet with a spatula, and fold it over the other half. Press down gently to allow melted cheese to "seal" your creation.
  6. Lift omelet onto plate and cut in half to serve in 2 sections. (Note: This is a large omelet that can be cut into thirds to make 3 servings.) For extra zing, add a few dashes of hot sauce before serving. Serve with toast and locally-made jam for a hearty country breakfast!
