I am totally guilty of taking the short cut on breakfast. My poor boys either get oatmeal, cereal or boxed pancakes. But today was different when I reached in the fridge to grab some almond milk for cereal I glanced down at the Johnsonville Sausage and got inspired. I recently shared with you about the Johnsonville Fire House Challenge, where Atlanta fireman competed for the title of best chili or stew recipe and ever since I have looked for inspiration to come up with my own one pan recipe to share with you all.

If you have never made an omelette before here is a tip. DO NOT add any liquid to your eggs, you want your eggs firm not runny.

I fold my omelettes into thirds after it has cooked on medium high for approximately 3.5 minutes. That extra 30 seconds gives it that brown crust that I love without over cooking it.

We had never had omelettes with kale or Rotel in it before I created this recipe, but for my family who has fallen in love with kale recently and has always loved or meals spicy this is a match made in heaven. Kale has so many health benefits I am happy to incorporate it into as many meals as possible. Check out all of Kales benefits here.

  1. Battery that omelette sounds absolutely delicious. I can’t wait to try it.

  2. That omelette looks delicious! I typically do spinach in my eggs, but I wonder if I’d like kale instead. My kids make their own breakfasts each morning and they typically make eggs and toast but every once in a while, one of them gets creative and makes an omelette. I may have to encourage them to try kale and sausage in their omelette!

  3. Now I have a new breakfast idea or brinner (breakfast for dinner). We get eggs from my parents chickens so this would be a great thing to add to our menu. Plus a bonus that it has a lot of protein.

  4. Mmm, I love a good omelette! And who doesn’t love Johnsonville sausage? We always stock up while it is on sale.

    • My little guy usually avoids green food like the plague, but he gobbled this omelette up no questions asked.
