Man’s Omelette


Chorizo Sausage and Onion with Cheddar Cheese Omelette

This Mexican Style Chorizo is fresh pork sausage made with dried chiles, garlic, paprika, dried Mexican oregano, ground cumin, salt and vinegar. Mexican Chorizo differs from Spanish and Portuguese Chorizo, as it is fresh, not smoked or cured, and the ingredients vary slightly.

Sauté chopped white onion in olive oil, then add the fresh chorizo, cook through.

Melt butter in a non-stick pan. Beat 3 eggs with salt and pepper. Cook the eggs, gently lifting them with a spatula, so the uncooked egg flows under the cooked egg. This method makes a wonderful fluffy omelette with a tender and creamy center (it looks like a flower).

Generously sprinkle the egg with shredded sharp cheddar cheese. Then top with the hot chorizo mixture. Fold in half onto a plate, garnish with sour cream.

We make a “Man’s Pizza,” too. It has double meat.

  1. Lori – Great method for cooking an omelette. Brava!

    The chorizo omelette looks delicious. I think the key is that you used fresh chorizo. I’ve tried it with that packaged chorizo in the deli section but it’s just too greasy.
