Habanero, Feta Cheese and Basil Garden Omelet

Habanero, Feta Cheese and Basil Garden Omelet


  • 1 to 2 habanero peppers, minced
  • 3 fresh large eggs, beaten
  • 4-6 large fresh basil leaves, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon feta cheese
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • Sliced avocado for topping

Cooking Directions

  • Heat a frying pan to medium heat and add oil.
  • Add beaten eggs and spread evenly across the pan to allow even cooking.
  • Spread habanero peppers, basil, and feta cheese over the center and cook about 1 minute, or until eggs begin to harden.
  • Fold eggs in half over the fillings, then fold in half again, forming a small egg pocket.
  • Cook another 1-2 minutes, allowing egg to cook thoroughly and cheese to melt within. Do not overcook or burn.
  • Transfer to a serving plate and top with extra basil leaves and sliced avocado.
