#36 :: Green Vegetable Omelet

This is something we came up with on our own, just trying to use up the produce before it spoils! I wasn't sure how it would turn out, but when we were finished and took the first bite, I looked at Jamie and said "It's official....we can COOK!" It turned out delicious! I'm really surprising myself!

Jamie cooked our eggs on the griddle -- he loves using that instead of a pan!


  • 1 zucchini, diced
  • 1 green pepper, diced
  • 1 bunch of green onions, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/4 cup bacon, crumbled
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheese (we used an Italian blend of Parmesan, Asiago, Provolone and Romano)
  • 1/4 tsp. thyme
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • Reserved shredded cheese (for topping)


In a medium pan saute the zucchini, green bell pepper, green onions and garlic in the olive oil & butter. Season with thyme, salt and pepper.

In a large bowl, beat the eggs. Fold in the sour cream. Add the bacon and shredded cheese, then season with salt & pepper. Add in the sauteed vegetables. Cook the egg mixture in a large skillet {or, if you're like Jamie, a griddle} on medium/high heat until eggs are scrambled. Serve immediately with a little extra shredded cheese sprinkled on top.

Makes 4 servings.
