    Units: US | Metric

    • 4 large eggs, beaten

    • 2 tablespoons pesto sauce
    • 2 tablespoons shredded romano cheese (may sub parmesean or feta)

      Combine eggs and tomato in a small bowl and set aside.
    2. 2
      Haet greased, large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Pour in egg mixture. Mixture should immediately set at the edges.
    3. 3
      Carefully push cooked mixture at edges toward center so uncooked portions can reach the hot pan surface, tilting pan as necessary.

    5. 5
      Reduce heat to low; fold omelet in half. Cook an additional 2 minutes and serve immediately.

      I had a bit of a disaster as I assembled the ingredients for this dish. I was planning on using feta for the cheese but when I took my crumbled feta out of the fridge I found that it had gone moldy :(. I had my taste buds all set for this brekky so I substituted the only other cheese in the fridge, an old cheddar. I also used my own pepper. After all this I found that I loved this dish! Thanks for sharing. Made for Kittencal's Europe on a Plate forum.

      I used 3 eggs for 2 of us and we loved the creamy saltiness from the fetta, the bit from the roasted red peppers and that slight garlic sweetness from the pesto (though I only used 2 teaspoons as I didn't want to overpower the other flavours). The DM and I thank you for full flavour breakfast, much enjoyed. Thanks JanuaryBride, made for the Aussie/Kiwin Swap #40 May 2010.

      I scaled this back to serve one for a most enjoyable brekky, this is loaded with flavour but the egg taste is lost a bit, I'd cut down the pesto by a smidge if I make again. Thanks for posting!
