"I Never Sausage A Thing"

Favorite Restaurant Breakfast Recipe

I have "fun" titles for some of the restaurant recipes like this Sausage Omelet Recipe ... "I Never Sausage A Thing!" ;-)

You can add some extra “zip” to this omelet by adding a dash of Tabasco or cayenne to the eggs while blending them!

Many restaurant guests like to add the "zip." ;-)

Sausage Omelet Recipe

Favorite Restaurant Recipe

Preparation Time: 5 minutes. Servings: 1-2.



  • 1 1/2 teaspoons each of butter and peanut or vegetable oil
  • 3 beaten eggs
  • 2 tablespoons sliced red onion
  • 3 ounces cooked, scrambled sausage (use your favorite)
  • 1 ounce Cheddar cheese (1/4 cup)
  • 1 ounce Mozzarella cheese (1/4 cup)



  • Heat an egg pan over moderate heat
  • While the pan is heating, beat the eggs in a small mixing bowl with a wire whip until blended but not frothy
  • When the pan is hot enough to sizzle a drop of water, add the butter and oil
  • When the butter stops foaming, add onions and sausage and sauté briefly to heat thoroughly
  • Whip the eggs a couple of times and pour into the pan
  • Let the eggs sit until they begin to cook around the edges
  • Lift edges of eggs with a rubber spatula and tip pan to allow liquid to run underneath
  • Repeat this process until the top is thickening and very little liquid egg remains
  • Sprinkle the cheese over the omelet and add salt and freshly ground pepper if desired
  • Fold in half and slide onto a plate or if serving 2, divide the omelet in the pan before sliding onto 2 plates, then serve

Oops! ...I just dropped an egg on the floor!

Am I cleaning it up immediately? No. If I drop an egg I cover it with salt and leave it for a few minutes. (Yes, I watch my step.) Then I use a paper towel to wipe it up. Much easier than "attacking" the mess immediately.

Enjoy your omelet recipe and the company of those you share it with. Enjoy all the restaurant recipes on my website. - Donna

“Alas my child, where is the Pen that can do justice to the Hen?

Like Royalty she goes her way, Laying Foundations every day.

But not for Public Buildings, but for Custard, Cake and Omelet.

No wonder Child we prize the Hen, Whose egg is mightier than the Pen.”
