As Hallowe’en and Thanksgiving approach, we always have left over pumpkin of some sort and wonder what to do with it. You can, of course, make pies, but I decided to go an extra step and make a pumpkin omelette. Believe me, it was well worth the effort. It was a type of omelette I have never tasted before. The taste of fresh pumpkin just comes through so nicely you will want seconds and share it with your family and friends.
The great thing is you can make the pumpkin omelette in about 20 minutes and it involves minimal effort and ingredients. Just add some eggs, pumpkin, green onions, milk, salt, pepper, and garlic and you have one of the nicest omelettes you have ever had. Of course you can add extra ingredients if you wish.
