Sausage Omelets

So, they say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day – but it seems that is the one meal that we spend the least amount of time preparing.  Most of the time, it’s a bowl of cereal, a cup of coffee, or the dreaded cold Pop-Tart.  

Well, put those cold pop-tarts back down, & whip some of these awesome Sausage Omelets up for your family.  They don’t require much time or effort, but they sure are good.

Saute up 1/2 pound of sausage, & 1 large onion.

I am making 4 nice sized omelets, so I am using about 10 eggs.  

Pour in a splash of milk, 4 tablespoons of sour cream, 1 teaspoon of ground mustard, and salt & pepper to taste.

Scramble them up well with a whisk, & pour enough in a hot, buttered omelet pan to cover the bottom.

Cook on medium heat, & flip after a couple of minutes.  If you are a pro, you can just toss it & flip.  However, if you are like me, you will use a large spatula to avoid egg splatters on the ceiling & the television in the other room.

Place a couple slices of good ol’ American cheese down the middle of the omelet…

Then some sauteed onion…

Followed by the cooked sausage.

Now, time to carefully roll it up!  

I like to drizzle on a little bit of hot sauce & a good sprinkling of shredded cheese.
