Papasan's Christmas Spinach & Apple Omelets


My Dad is an amazing cook! Sometimes he gets a bit eccentric, but along the way he usually runs into a masterpiece. This was one of them! For one thing- they were the most beautiful omelets I've ever "beheld!" (That is somewhat expected seeing as how my Dad is a Professor of Horticulture and Floral Design.) And for another... they were such a fun mix of flavor that I never would have thought to put together. Go DAD!

Note: I was taking dictations on this one, so it might not be the easiest to follow, but well worth the trouble! :) Also, he was just explaining how to make one at a time, so you'll have to figure out how many you want and double or triple the recipe.

Papasan's Christmas Spinach & Apple Omelets
(*And in case you were wondering, you don't have to wait until Christmas to try this one out. :)
6-8 inch skillet
1/2 tsp of grape seed oil (or EVOO)
Julienne diced apples (1/4 of the apple for one omelet)
spinach leaves, sliced
Cooked Bacon, crumbled
Grated Cheese (mozzarella, provolone, Parmesan, and cheddar)

*Place apples and spinach on skillet with warm oil, medium heat. Gently fold over once one side is browned. Sprinkle with bacon. Lightly Brown. Sprinkle with pepper, pinch of Cheyenne, mozzarella, provolone, cheddar, and Parmesan cheese.

*Whip 1-2 egg in a small bowl and pour over and around the mixture in the skillet. After setting slightly, fold. Turn once. Sprinkle with a dash of Kosher salt. Serve warm and garnish with fresh blackberries (that may sound weird but it tasted delicious!).

Wow Lyd
thanks for placing me on the blog. I miss the omelets, but more than that all the fun with you, Doug, and the girls. I will keep the skillet warm!
