Kitchen Sink Omlette for Two

A couple of Saturdays ago we were sipping coffee on the couch and Ina was making an omelette for Jeffrey on TV.... I have a love/hate relationship with eggs. I HATE scrambled eggs... I like sunny side up eggs but sometimes they gross me out...totally depending on my mood. I am meh about omelettes because I don't always love the texture... so yeah....eggs and I have a weird relationship...

Anyway, this Saturday Ina was making Jeffrey an "omelette for two" that she had in Paris or something and it looked delicious. Every weekend since seeing this episode we have made an omelette in this way using just whatever we randomly had either leftover from the week or that was about to go bad or was just sitting in the freezer. I've made these with potatoes, turkey bacon, boca "sausage" patties, etc etc... This particular Saturday we had mushrooms and a mushroom onion omelette is what we had..

So basically here is the method... make it however you want!
First I chopped up some leftover mushrooms and onions...

Then whisked up 4 eggs (this is for two people) and some milk....and LOTS of hot sauce. mmm

I sprayed the pan with nonstick spray, sauteed up the mushrooms and onions and then added in the eggs....

Let it sit in there for about a minute and then pop it in a 350 degree oven for about 15 minutes...

Take it out, slide it out of the pan, cut it in half and you have two perfectly delicious omelettes....


Omelette for Two (adapted from Ina Garten)


  • Any ingredients you have on hand.. we used:
  • mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup chopped onions
  • 4 extra-large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons milk or cream
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Chopped scallions, white and green parts


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Spray an oven-safe pan with non-stick spray and saute up your mushrooms & onions.
Separately, whisk up 4 eggs with some milk and hot sauce and pour into the hot pan over the mushrooms and onions. Let it sit for about a minute then stick it in the oven for about 12-15 minutes depending on how firm you like your eggs....
Slide off the pan, garnish with the scallion...and enjoy your easy and delicious breakfast!
