I hate to throw anything out, sometimes you have no choice but to put something in the trash. The other day I made hamburgers and decided to have sauted onions and mushrooms on them. Normally I am very good at making just the right amount of things, but not this time. Guess I can rack it up to the fact I really like mushrooms and my thinking my wife would put more on her burger. There really was only about 3 tablespoons left and my wife was going to put them in the trash but I told her to keep them.
My solution to using up small amounts of something is always an omelette. Over the years my omelettes have ended up with a lot of different things in them even shrimp and pulled pork. This wasn’t that strange mushrooms and onions are always good in an omelette. Feel kind of silly even putting this on my blog but it was a delicious omelette.
2 beaten eggs
left over onions and mushrooms
1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese
2 green onions chopped
2 teaspoons butter
salt and pepper to taste
Preheat a frying pan with butter on medium low heat. Add the eggs and sprinkle the green onions on top. Salt and pepper the omelette and cover the pan. When eggs have just set turn the omelette over and shut the heat off. Add the onions and mushrooms to one half and the cheese to the other half. Cover the pan and wait 2 minutes, flip the cheese half on to the onion mushroom half and serve.
