    [Sneek-A-Peek] Pizza Omelette


    Ingredients

    - 3 whole eggs
    - 6 slices low fat pepperoni thick, sliced
    - 1 small tomato, diced
    - 1 clove fresh garlic, diced
    - 3 large black olives, diced
    - 1 tbsp olive oil
    - 1 tsp oregano dried
    - 1 tbsp parmesan cheese, shredded
    - salt and pepper to taste

    Directions

    1. Heat pan over medium high heat and add in the pepperoni and the garlic, sear the pepperoni and the garlic, remove from heat and set aside.

    2. Grab a bowl and whisk your 3 eggs. 

    3. Reheat the pan, the residue oil from the pepperoni should be enough, but if necessary add the olive oil. 

    4. Once the pan is hot enough pour in your whisked eggs and let cook for a few seconds, until you see the edges beginning to cook and firm up. Move the eggs so that the raw eggs can flow onto the hot skillet and cook, don't actually scramble the eggs just kind of pull the cooked ones to the center. 

    5. While still semi-soft in the center add the pepperoni/ garlic mix, pepperoni, tomato, black olives, oregano, and cheese, allow to cook a few more seconds, until it appears to be firm and the bottom is getting golden. 

    6. Fold over and slide onto the plate. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

    Blue Cheese Veggie Burger Recipe | Guest Food Blogger Evan Howell


    BLUE CHEESE VEGGIE BURGER
    with Mushrooms & Avocado (Serves 2)

    • 6 Leaves of Lettuce
    • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
    • 2 teaspoons chopped garlic
    • 1 (15.25-ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
    • 1/4 Cup of Mushrooms
    • 1 oz of Bleu Cheese or Crumbles
    • 1 Avocado
    • 1 teaspoon grated lime rind
    • 3/4 teaspoon chili powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh oregano
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
    • 1 large egg white, lightly beaten
    1. Place one hamburger bun torn into pieces in a food processor; process 4 times or until crumbs measure about 1 cup. Transfer to a bowl.
    2. Combine 1 tablespoon oil, garlic, and beans in processor; pulse 8 times or until beans make a thick paste. Scrape bean mixture into bowl with breadcrumbs. Stir in rind and remaining ingredients. With moistened hands, divide bean mixture into 4 equal portions (about 1/3 cup mixture per portion), shaping each into a 3-inch patty.
    3. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. I am a big fan of non-stick ceramic pans. Add patties to pan; reduce heat to medium, and cook 4 minutes or until bottom edges are browned. Carefully turn patties over and add sliced mushrooms. Cook 3 minutes or until bottom edges are done.
    4. Toast buns and slice the avocado. A 'less-mess' trick is to slice the avocado in half, then slice the avocado meat in pieces while it's in the shell before you scoop it out.
    5. Plate with lettuce first, then mushrooms, blue cheese and avocado. As with all good foods, add a small dose of Sri-Racha.
