Food Fun Friday: Chili Omelet

Food Fun Friday is coming in a day late, but with a spicy start to the weekend!

So, I'll never be normal...I love to eat breakfast for dinner and dinner for breakfast. My favorite quick meal? A steamy, spicy chili omelet with toast and milk.

2 large eggs
1/2-1 c chili with beans
2 slices of bread, toasted
3 tbs unsalted butter
2 c and a splash of milk

In a small bowl, scramble eggs with a splash of milk. Melt 1 tbs butter in omelet pan or small frying pan over medium heat.

Pour eggs into the pan, swirling the eggs so the bottom is completely covered and let them cook. I like my eggs well-done, no soft or slimy consistency for me! So I let the eggs cook until the top is no longer shiny.

While the eggs are cooking, heat the chili on the stove or in the microwave.

Once the chili is warmed, spoon half of it over the center of the eggs. Reduce the heat. 
spoon chili over the center of the eggs
fold egg over chili
flip the omelet over
Depending on how you like your omelet, fold the egg in half or thirds, keeping the chili inside then flip it over and allow it to cook for 1-2 minutes.

Toast the bread and use the remaining butter on the slices.

Slide the omelet onto a plate. Spoon the remaining chili over the top. If you include cheese, sprinkle that over the chili. Pour the 2 c of milk into a glass, set the toast beside the omelet and enjoy!
