"Think of all the beauty that's still left in and around you and be happy."
Anne Frank

for the serenity of lake life in the northwoods

 and enjoying a favorite Midwestern breakfast.
Wild Rice, Sausage and Spinach Omelet
Cook's Notes: A delicious and hearty Midwestern breakfast or brunch meal Wild Rice, Sausage and Spinach Omelet. Pair the omelet with fruit and roasted potatoes and it's a great start to the day. For easier prep cook wild rice and sausage the day before. 
Cook's Notes: Each omelet is 3 large eggs, 1/4 cup half and half and 1/2 TB. butter. The filling is enough for two-3 egg omelets.

  • In an 8 inch omelet pan or small fry pan (with deep sides) heat 1 tablespoon oil. Sauté peppers, onions, mushrooms, garlic and spinach leaves about 4 minutes. Add in cooked wild rice and sausage, mix well. Remove mixture from pan, set aside and wipe pan clean. 
  • In a blender add 3 eggs, 1/4 cup half and half, 1/2 teaspoon parsley flakes, 1/4 teaspoon dry mustard, salt and pepper. In an omelet pan or skillet, heat 1/2 tablespoon butter over medium heat. 
  • Pour egg mixture into pan, cook until mixture thickens, lifting cooked portions around edges to allow uncooked portion to flow underneath. 
  • Divide sautéed sausage mixture in half. Sprinkle filling over half of cooked omelet. Add cheese and with a spatula fold omelet in half. Slide onto warmed plate. 
  • Repeat process for second omelet. Top omelet with diced tomatoes.
