These Margarita Omelette are something special, made with fresh basil, passata tomato sauce, jalapeno cheese and eggs.
I came up with this recipe recently while experimenting with different ways to use “passata tomato sauce”.
And boy oh boy this recipe is a keeper!
What is passata sauce
Well it’s a Tomato base that is used for most traditional Italian sauces.
Basically it is uncooked tomato puree without seeds or skins.
If you have ever had a margherita pizza and liked it your sure to enjoy this recipe. The taste is the same minus the bread which is replaced with eggs.
So if you are on a paleo or gluten free diet than this would be perfect.
I highly recommending using jalapeno cheese instead of mozzarella for this recipe, as it gives it that extra kick that works so well.
These omelettes are sure to be popular in your household with all those who like margarita style pizzas. And they can be enjoyed for breakfast oras a dinner.
Also feel free to use anywhere from 2 to 3 eggs for this recipe, I tend to use 3 when serving it for dinner and 2 for breakfast. This particular recipe calls for 3 each.
So you will start by simply, cooking the passata sauce along with the spinach. Once it’s been simmering for 5 minutes on medium heat.
Then remove it from the heat and allow it to cool down before pouring onto the plates.
Then you can crack and beat the eggs till slightly fluffy in a medium sized bowl.
Season lightly with some salt and pepper and place in a small non stick frying pan after the butter as coasted the bottom of the pan.
Cooking the omelette is super simple, as you are just cooking it over medium high heat till it starts to bubble and firm.
You may want to shake the pan a bit to allow the egg to cook more evenly.
Then once it has firmed somewhat you will then place the shredded “Jalapeno Cheese” over the top along with the sliced cherry tomatoes.
Note: Feel free to use Mozzarella cheese instead of Jalapeno Cheese if desired.
