Super Bowl Leftovers Omelette

One of my greatest guilty pleasures is guacamole. Oh, yeah. And while I enjoy making my own salsa guac at home, on other occasions (as yesterday, when we had company over) I just find it way more sane to buy premade guacamole with simple and short ingredient lists; in this case it was a large three-pack from Wholly Guacamole, which I bought at Sam's Club. You know what else I bought at Sam's Club? A delicious real cheese queso sauce; it did have trace amounts of canola oil as part of the jalapeno blend (very far down the ingredient list) added to the cheese, but to me that was a minor quibble as there was no wheat, no hydrogenated anything.

We had a huge bowl of baby carrots and (yes, the very rare appearance of) organic blue corn chips from Target for dipping. Dipping heaven!

But you know what? Despite our best scarfing efforts, we still had lots of dip left this morning. Not that I'm complaining - they merely got integrated into one of the most delicious omelettes in recent memory, which just happens to be very low carb. Presenting THE... (drumroll)

By the way, that guacamole
guilty pleasure thing? It's hereditary.
Super Bowl Leftovers Omelette
Serves 1 adult, 1 preschooler, and 1 toddler

4 eggs, beaten
2 tbsp. butter
1/4 c. finely chopped onions (more or less to your tastes; I love having prechopped onions and prechopped garlic around for spontaneous creations like this)
1 tbsp. finely chopped garlic (to keep the vampires at bay)
1/4 c. cheese of choice
(I used crumbled gorgonzola, which happened to be on hand)
1/4 c. queso dip
Guacamole to top, as much as you like

On medium high heat in a large pan, melt the butter. To the butter, add the onions and garlic, and stir to combine. Once the onions and garlic have sauteed for a minute or two, add beaten eggs and spread all over the pan. Sprinkle cheese of choice over the surface of the eggs; allow to melt briefly, then add pieces of the queso dip all over the omelette to melt. Use a very large spatula to fold the omelette in half, then to fold the half omelette into a quarter. Plate the omelette and drop generously with quacamole.

Oh, and if you are wishing you could have had this for breakfast...what's to stop you from having it for dinner? :)

  1. The large three-pack from Wholly Guacamole is good to have and you can freeze the extra packages in a freezer and thaw a plastic package in a bowl of cold water. It comes out great and is a good trick if the guacamole is close dated.
