Simple California Omelet.

And when I say omelets, I mean like a really GOOD omelet. One with the yolks, some butter, herbs and cheese.

  • 6 eggs
  • kosher salt + pepper
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chives finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup oil packed sun-dried tomatoes oil reserved + tomatoes roughly chopped
  • 1 cup shredded gruyere cheese
  • 2 slices crusty whole grain bread, toasted
  • 2 ears fresh corn grilled + kernels removed from the cob
  • 1 avocado sliced
  • 2-4 slices cooked thick cut bacon
  • 2 handfuls fresh arugula

Lemony Tahini Dressing


  • In a bowl, use a fork to whisk together the eggs + a pinch of salt and pepper. Whisk in the chives.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium-low heat. Once the pan is hot add 1 tablespoon of butter and swirl the pan to coat. Pour in half of the egg mixture and let it set for about 10 to 20 seconds. Use a heat-safe spatula to gently move the set eggs toward the middle of the pan, then tilt the pan so runny eggs take their place. Sprinkle on half of the sun-dried tomatoes. Allow the eggs to set almost completely and then add half the cheese to the center of the omelet. Use your spatula to gently release the underside of the omelet from the pan. Tilt the pan a little forward and back to make sure it’s not stuck anywhere. Let it set for a few seconds, then scoot it off the pan onto a plate. Immediately fold both sides over the cheese like you would a letter. The heat from the omelet will melt the cheese. Repeat with the remaining ingredients.
  • Place each omelet on a piece of toasted, buttered bread. Add a handful of arugula, grilled corn, a slice or two of bacon plus an avocado sprinkled with salt + pepper. Drizzle each omelet with the tahini dressing (see below). EAT!

Lemony Tahini Dressing

  • Combine all ingredients in a high-powered blender or food processor, add a 1/4 cup water and blend until smooth and creamy. Taste and adjust salt + pepper to your liking. Dressing will keep in the fridge for up to 1 week.
