Sweet Blueberry Lemon Puffed Omelette from Gourmande in the Kitchen Sweet Blueberry Lemon Puffed Omelette

Whether it’s for breakfast, brunch, lunch or even dinner, an omelette is one of those speedy but satisfying dishes every cook should have in their repertoire.  Easy to throw together, it’s also a great vehicle for using up leftovers and always a good choice when you want something nutritious, delicious and satisfying.

One of my favorite weekend breakfasts of late is a sweet and puffed take on the classic dish.  This fluffy, sweet blueberry lemon puffed omelette adds just a few minutes to the preparation but the result is well worth the extra tiny bit of patience that’s required.  Fluffy egg whites and a quick trip to the oven are the secret.
