As Hallowe’en and Thanksgiving are approaching, we always have left over pumpkin. We often wonder what to do with it. You can, of course, make pies, but I decided to go an extra step and and be different. So, I made a squash style pumpkin omelette. Believe me, it was well worth the time and effort. It is a type of omelette I have never tasted before. The taste of fresh pumpkin just comes through so nicely you will want to have seconds and share it with your family and friends.
Squash and Onion Omlette
There is nothing better than a nice omelette for breakfast. I'll let you in on a secret, however, it's great for any time of the day. As silly as it might seem, I have been know to have one for dinner and this is the perfect omelette. Give it a try and your family and friends will love it.
Crack the eggs into a bowl followed by the milk, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Whisk until well combined.
Add in the pumpkin and onions. Once again, mix until well incorporated.
Add some oil to a pan over medium high heat and pour the omelette mixture in and spread it out. Slip a lid on and cook until it's set on one side.
After 5 or 6 minutes and it's set on one side, remove the lid and place a plate over top of the omelette. Gently flip it onto the plate, turn it over, and flip it back into the pan. Fry for an additional 3. minutes or so on the other side.
Serve and enjoy your squash and onion omelette.
