Spending Time on the Mediterranean

Back before the boy and I lived together, I used to love making myself omelettes for breakfast. It was never anything too complicated, mainly just chicken and feta, or even just feta. Instead now, most weekends we lazily open a can of biscuits or crescent rolls to share. But recently I tried to go back to my roots with an omelette for breakfast, although one a little more complicated than what I used to make (but really not that much more complicated!)

Mediterranean Omelette

2 or 3 eggs
Olive oil
4 Kalamata olives, chopped
1 Slice roasted bell pepper, chopped
1/2 Tablespoon of Capers
2-3 Ounces Feta, crumbled
Graded Parmesan, to taste
Salt & Pepper, to taste
(Not pictured)
1. Grease pan with olive oil. Mix together eggs with salt and pepper. Add to well heated pan.
2. Once the majority of the eggs have cooked, flip eggs completely over.
(This make sure the omelette isn't to uncooked in the middle, somewhat of my pet peeve with omelettes.)
3. Add all ingredients to one side of the eggs. Once cheese starts to melt fold over second half of omlette and remove to a plate to enjoy!

I just love this combination of ingredients together in omelettes, as well as pretty much anything else. In fact, not too long after I made this, the boy made me a Mediterranean Pizza using much of the same ingredients.
Mediterranean & Pepperoni Pizza
Although, he doesn't quite share my passion for the combination, which is why his half of the pizza was pepperoni.

Do you have a combination of ingredients you feel goes together perfectly? And what's your normal weekend breakfast?


  1. I do a cheese and veggie omelet often and I've started to make paleo pancakes -- egg, almond flour, banana -- and top with real maple syrup. I am a huge fan of these pancakes and make them every weekend.

  2. Our default weekend breakfast is bacon, eggs, and toast or rice. I'm always on the look out for more interesting breakfast combos. My favorite omelet combo is spinach and cheese.

  3. I am on a huge oatmeal kick now (easy to make at work, ha!) but in general am not a fan of huge breakfasts so if at home I'll make a smoothie or have a coconut milk yogurt. I make omlets for dinner all the time with lots of veggies!

  4. I like to saute onion and bell peppers and then add beaten eggs to make scrambled eggs. We serve them up in tortillas--so good! We usually have bigger breakfasts on the weekend--French toast, pancakes, muffins, or scones with fruit/eggs/bacon, etc.

  5. Oatmeal is also my husband's FAVORITE. He would eat it every night if I let him. *lol*
