Red, White and Blue Omelet

Red, White and Blue Omelet

Happy Fourth everyone! I hope you all have something fun and some good eats on your agenda today. I have a great meal planned for Jesse and me this evening … check back tomorrow for a recap and pictures. Here’s a little forecast though: grass-fed tri tip steak, fresh and local veggies and berries, and 24-hour half-and-half yogurt. More specifics to come tomorrow!

Anyway, I had to go to Cultured Caveman this morning to replenish my goodies (also made a new flavor, choco cherry!), but before going, decided to jumpstart my day with an appropriate Fourth of July breakfast … a red, white and blue omelet. First, let me explain that this is not a savory omelet, but a sweeter one rather. I was inspired by Paleo Magazine’s, Strawberry Applesauce Omelet recipe, but added an Independence Day twist to it. I ate mine with two of Applegate Naturals’ chicken apple sausages. See my take on the recipe below.

Ingredients:

  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • Dash of cinnamon
  • Dash of pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp grass-fed ghee
  • 2 Tbsp unsweetened applesauce
  • 3-4 sliced strawberries
  • 2-3 Tbsp fresh or frozen blueberries (thaw if using frozen)
  • Coconut butter, for drizzling
  • Drizzle of raw honey, optional

Directions:

  1. Melt ghee in heated skillet. Meanwhile, beat together eggs, cinnamon and vanilla.
  2. Pour egg mixture into skillet. Cook until mostly set, then flip.
  3. Spread the applesauce, strawberries and blueberries over half the omelet. Drizzle on the honey, if using and coconut butter.
  4. Fold in half and slide onto a plate.

    Oh my God, that omelette looks amazing. I’m thinking the toppings would go well with some coconut flour pancakes as well? So many ideas! And also, i am 100% jealous that you have a paleo food cart so close to you! I don’t think a semi-paleo friendly restaurant, much less food cart, exists less than three states away from me!

      It was tasty! I realized it was basically like eating the batter mixture for french toast plus the fruit. Yes, these toppings would definitely go well with coconut flour pancakes too! The possibilities really are endless, and it’s so much fun.

      We’re very fortunate to have a paleo food cart, plus a few other restaurants that specify paleo items on their menus. It’s growing … slowly, but surely. You have no idea how excited I was when the cart opened just over a month ago though … a dream come true! The food is awesome too, as well as the owners. If you ever visit Portland, you know where you’ll need to go 🙂

    Omgosh, this looks absolutely divine! I must try it, even if it won’t be the 4th. 😉

      Yep, they’re delicious any time, and you can always switch up the fruit too. Peaches, banana, or blackberries would be spectacular!
