This western omelette has become one of my favorite breakfast
choices. I love the delicate flavor of the green onion, ham and
cheese. To me it's divine.
A traditional western calls for just chopped onion and ham but I like to prepare mine this way. It's not only delicious but as you can see, it's pretty with the flecks of color throughout. I believe food should taste great and look as attractive as possible.
The addition of avocado on top is perfect. The heat from the omelette warms the avocado rendering it tender and much more flavorful. I buy the large Haas avocados and typically will eat a 1/4 of one. The fat and fiber really keeps me going for well into the afternoon. No hunger pangs and no need for mid-morning snack.
If you prefer, you can fold the omelette and serve the avocado on the side.
It's one of the reasons I love this way of eating. My blood sugar levels are always steady. Gone are the days of having a bagel and fruit for breakfast and being famished by 10am!!
Most of my well-meaning friends and family think this way of eating is not healthy. That's because they still believe (erroneously) in the whole low fat / high carb diet. That works for some people but it doesn't for me. So to each his own. I don't comment on the way they eat so I appreciate no comments on the way I choose to eat. Fair?
And now on to the recipe.
