Avocados in Omelets? — 20 Comments

  1. Ts, ts, your husband was out of control? Thanks, otherwise we missed this recipe

  2. Well, I’m a food sl*t, so we would make a great couple! I sure love that omelet. The cheese is driving me crazy! It’s all very nice that the dish is so healthy, but as a food sl*t, I just care about the taste. I must be honest. It’s true!

  3. I’m going shopping later so maybe I better get some avocados. I do love them. Avocados in omelets are quite popular here in restaurants, usually with Southwestern type flavors such as chilis, monterey jack cheese, sour cream, and maybe salsa. Love the sound of avocado with goat cheese.

  4. Ulrike, he usually is at the markets…. Oh the stories….
    Kalyn, I never thought about doing it Southwestern…. that would be good…

  5. What a great idea — I’ve done guacamole omelets, but never just the slices of avocado. I’d probably have to put hot sauce on it or in it, just because I love it so much!

  6. Wait up here Katie . . . I’m liking that Spanish Rosado, the plate with the omelette, the sunset, all the healthy stuff but I’m going to have to hold off on the salmon till tomorrow!
    Wow that looks soooo good and just about right for my dinner!

  7. Yum! I have never put avocado in omelets…hmmmm, its the weekend – the perfect time for omelets! I am thinking this will be tried in my house in the very near future!

  8. Katie, Avocados are a favorite around here. There is nothing better than an avocado/tomato toasted sandwich. Big slabs of avocado. Big slabs of fresh tomato. A bit of mayo. Or not. When I can get them for a buck a piece, I feel like a king!

  9. We always have avocados on hand (until they start getting so expensive it’s ridiculous to buy even one) because we love them so, but I never knew until now how heathly they are. thanks for a great post, katie!

  10. Sher, I have to admit, for me it’s all about the taste, too. Healthy is just an incidental bonus LOL
    Lydia, mon mari likes hot sauce, I just can’t do hot…Green Tabasco is just about right for me!
    Tanna, the problem with the terrace and the rosado is that’s usually where it ends…
    Chris, Try it…you’ll like it! And it wasn’t your computer (I don’t think) Typepad was doing maintenance! I deleted the spares!
    Farmgirl, avocoado and tomato…I like that! There can be a real price swing on them…
    Christine, I didn’t either! We use to tease a friend, who always has one for breakfast, about eating healthier…I sit corrected!

  11. What a rich and spectacular combo for an omelet. I am inspired to try to make an omelet now. That looks like aged goat cheese, is that right? Does it have a pungent nose? How much was the cheese heated, and did it get more mellow to the nose and taste when heated?

  12. Hey Katie,
    I love avocados. Let’s ban them.
    Sorry I did not mean to ban foie gras but to ban all eating.
    Sometimes I am too sarcastic to make a bit of sense.

  13. I can totally imagine how creamy those avocados and cheese that go with your fluffy deliciously looking omelettes 🙂

  14. Lannae, the chevre wasn’t anything special, just the usual little log that comes prepackaged but is is a proper cheese with some aging. It does have a nice pungent taste. After I finish the omelets I leave them in a 200F (100C) oven for a few minutes to make certain the cheese is warmed through.
    Sue, it’s your way with words that keeps me coming back… And I meant to say ‘ban the people with too many opinions’ Ooops, that would include me…
    MeltingWok, the avocado and goat cheese do work amazingly well together. Thanks for stopping by 🙂

  15. Okay, I’m going to buy some avocados and make this tonight. I have lots of eggs I need to use up. I love toasted, buttered sourdough bread with avocados smashed on top.

  16. What a great recipe, thanks for sharing. I´m a fan of avocados myself as you know! So I´ll try this one!! 🙂

  17. Meredith, smashed avocado on sourdough…yum!
    Helene, I didn’t use to like them, I thought they were flavorless and too caloric. Now I love them…is cilantro next?!?
    Lucy, I’ll put almost anything in an omelet – at least once..

  18. What a glorious dish and I’m with you…being a fickle food wh*re myself! It seems that what’s on my plate is usually “the best thing I ever made”.
