As I was sweating through an exercise class today, I was thinking about what I would eat when I got home (hey, it's what gets me through!). I was really craving an omelet, but then I remembered that they always stick to the pan when I make them. My dad totally makes the best omelets, and he's tried to teach me, but I think I'm hopeless.
So, I decided to make my omelet components into a salad. I sauteed vegetables, added hard-boiled eggs, and included the cheeses I normally enjoy in an omelet. I added the croutons just because I like them. I think what I actually managed to do was to deconstruct the original idea - from my point of view it was a complete success! The taste wasn't identical, but I really enjoyed the hot vegetables with the greens, cheese, croutons, and french dressing. Plus, it was a great way to eat some protein and veggies (though not my goal).
There really is no actual recipe, but I sauteed red onions, zucchini, and red pepper. I added the veggies and hard-boiled eggs to mixed greens and topped my salad with feta, cheddar, croutons, and french dressing. Yum.
