Ingredients:

Serves 2

  • ¼ cup yellow or sweet onion
  • ¼ cup green bell pepper
  • ½ cup apple of choice
  • ¼ cup tomato of choice
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon oil
  • 4 eggs (whole or liquid)

Instructions:

  1. Wash hands thoroughly with soap and water.
  2. Rinse onion, bell pepper, apple, and tomato thoroughly under running water.
  3. Peel and dice onion into ½-inch pieces and place in a medium bowl.
  4. Dice bell peppers and tomato into ½-inch pieces and place in bowl with onion.
  5. Cut around apple core and dice apple into ½-inch pieces. Place in bowl with vegetable mixture.
  6. Add garlic powder, black pepper, and salt to vegetable and apple mix and stir to coat with spices.
  7. Heat a nonstick, medium size skillet on medium heat. Add oil. After 30 seconds, add vegetable and apple mix to skillet. Cook until vegetables and apple are soft (about 3-4 minutes).
  8. In a bowl, crack and whisk eggs. Wash hands thoroughly after cracking eggs. Add egg to veggies in skillet and place whisk and egg bowl in the sink to wash.
  9. Cook omelet about 2 minutes and flip.
  10. Cook 2 more minutes. Ensure eggs are fully cooked with an internal temperature of 160-degrees Fahrenheit for at least 60 seconds. Fold omelet in half and serve immediately. Note: Consuming raw or undercooked eggs may increase your risk of foodborne illness, especially if you have certain medical conditions.

Notes:

  • Replacing the apple with in-season fruits like pear, plum, or peach is delicious! If using canned fruit, look for fruits packed in 100% fruit juice. Drain, pat dry, and add just before adding the eggs.
  • Personalize it! Try adding other vegetables that you have on hand.
  • Top with scallions and tomatoes for a beautiful garnish that is perfect for breakfast, brunch, or a light dinner.
