This large family style omelette is great to serve for brunch or any get together. Spice it up with a variety of fresh sausages from your local grocer.
2 tsp (10 mL) canola oil
2 mild or hot Italian sausages, casings removed
4 green onions, whites and greens, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 Cortland, Honey Crisp or Spartan apples, cored and chopped
1/4 tsp (1 mL) fennel seeds, crushed (optional)
Pinch freshly grated nutmeg
3 tbsp (45 mL) water
Pinch freshly ground black pepper
In a 12 inch (30 cm) non stick, oven proof skillet, heat 1 tsp (5 mL) of the oil over medium high heat and cook sausage, green onions and garlic, breaking up with a spoon, for 3 minutes. Stir in apple, fennel (if using) and nutmeg; cook, stirring for about 4 minutes or until sausage is no longer pink and apples are tender crisp. Scrape into a bowl; set aside.
Return skillet to medium low heat and add remaining 1 tsp (5 mL) oil.
In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, water and pepper. Pour into skillet and cook, stirring gently until eggs start to set. Place under the broiler for 3 minutes or until eggs are completely set and puffed. Slide the omelette onto a serving platter and spread sausage mixture on half of the omelette. Fold remaining half over sausage filling to cover.
