loaded omelette

it was (yet another) grey and rainy saturday morning that called for sleeping in a bit. so once e and i finally made it out of bed and downstairs into the kitchen, we were both starving. i like sweet things for breakfast, but really, only eggs can fill me up well enough so that i'm only hungry again hours later. and e - he always wants eggs.
so i made an omelette with toast, as well as steel cut oats (please see that post). i must say, this omelette was very good. and add some valentina hot sauce... yum!

loaded omelette
4 eggs - preferably brown, cage-free ;-)
1/2 cup of organic 2% milk
1 shallot, diced
4-5 shiitake mushrooms, diced
handful of diced red peppers
handful of diced green peppers
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 "slices" of laughing cow cheese
2 tbsp butter
1 tbsp paprika
kosher salt & pepper

in a small pan (i cheated and used a crepe pan), heat the butter on medium-high. once it has melted, saute the shallots, garlic, mushrooms, and peppers. in a glass bowl, add the eggs and milk and whip it up well. add kosher salt and pepper to taste, as well as the paprika (optional). once the veggies have cooked down, add the eggs to the pan and cook on medium. as the eggs begin to cook, cut up the laughing cow cheese into small cubes and add onto the eggs. flip half of the omelette over, and serve with toast or an english muffin, and a good cup of coffee.
buen provecho!
