Avocado Omelet

"I got this from an old friend. It is easy and quite good. Just make the omelet as you would normally with the diced avocado in the middle when you fold the omelet. Then pour the sauce over it. YUM! I added shredded pepper jack cheese like you would in a normal omelet. You could also use plain cheddar."

    I wouldn't call the sauce a true sauce, I would call it a topping. It is not pretty to look at BUT it tastes AMAZING! My husband ate 3 omelets by himself! The flavors are really good...and this is coming from a person who hates omelets! It is very satisfying and filling. I will make it again, thanks for sharing the recipe. I had never heard of an avocado omelet before this! I always have overripe tomatoes and avocadoes on hand...this works for me!

    I scaled this down to 2 eggs and enjoyed this omelet! The sauce was yummy too. Thanks! Made for Theme of the Month(TOTM) game.


I am married, have three children and two grandchildren. My youngest "oops" baby is just turning 17 and is going to be a senior in high school in the fall.. I love to cook and collect recipes. I get a lot of my good recipes from church potlucks. Since I am now retired and a stay at home mom, I have time to search the RecipeZaar site and try a lot of the recipes. We love living on the coast and would never move back inland!
