Avocado omelette

Avocado omelette

A simple omelette is great, but a tomato avocado omelette served with crunchy pea shoots and sourdough bread is even better! Serving this beautiful dish with a selection of delightfully colourful toppings like cottage cheese, red tomatoes, green avocados, and purple-red onions adds a lot of different tastes and textures to the rich, classic avocado omelette.


Step 1
  • Mix the eggs, milk, salt, and pepper in a bowl. 
Step 2
  • Fry 2 big or 4 small omelettes in butter and rapeseed oil. Gently stir a couple of times.
Step 3
  • Garnish the omelettes with cottage cheese, avocado, tomato, and onion. Sprinkle with pea shoots and serve with sourdough bread.

Ensuring a tender, fluffy omelette has to do with how you mix it and fry it, but, to a great extent, also what you add to the eggs. Make sure you use high-fat milk to get a fluffy, airy texture. You should also make sure to whisk the eggs and milk vigorously to incorporate plenty of air into the mixture. Use a non-stick frying pan, and, after transferring the egg mixture to the hot pan, leave it alone for about 1 minute until the edges and bottom have begun to set. Although you need a hot pan, it should not be too hot as you risk cooking it too fast, making it rubbery. When the edges and bottom have set, use a heat-resistant rubber spatula to push part of the edge into the centre. As you do, tilt the pan so the still liquid mixture can flow in underneath. Repeat this until the mixture has set and the omelette can slide around on the pan's surface. This should enable you to flip it over and cook it for a few seconds on the other side as well. Also make sure to choose the perfect, ripe avocado, sweet sun-kissed tomatoes, and fresh pea shoots. In a simple recipe like this, the quality of the ingredients is extra important, so go for delicious, fresh ingredients.

How to make an avocado omelette?
Prepare the egg mixture for the avocado omelette by whisking together eggs, milk, salt, and pepper as you melt the butter in a pan. Cook either two big omelettes or four small ones. Top them to create an enticing avocado omelette with cottage cheese, diced tomato, and red onion rings, sprinkle with crunchy pea shoots and serve with pieces of crispy sourdough bread for a simple yet luxurious meal.
How long will an avocado omelette last in the fridge?
An avocado omelette will last for 3-4 days in the fridge. It keeps better if you store it and its toppings separately. Otherwise, the liquid released by the tomatoes and cottage cheese may lead the omelette to become soggy. The omelette should be cooled and then wrapped in cling film or aluminium foil, while the toppings are best kept in an airtight container. To prevent the avocado bites from browning, coat them with a bit of acidic lemon or lime juice to protect them from oxidisation.
Can you put avocado in an omelette?
There are different ways to use avocado in omelettes. While it is possible to add them to the avocado omelette egg mixture, doing so will make them less flavourful and may make them hard as opposed to creamy in consistency. As such, serving fresh pieces of avocado with an omelette rather than cooking them makes for a more enjoyable eating experience as you get to enjoy the combination of fluffy eggs and soft, buttery avocado.

Classic omelette with avocado and tomato on top

A beautifully golden omelette topped with colourful ingredients is a feast for the senses, taking this classic breakfast to the next level with different flavours and textures. Avocado and omelette is a great combination but to create a truly well-rounded avocado omelette, the green delight needs company from other delicious, colourful, and tasty toppings.

Sweet and savoury ingredients

An avocado tomato omelette makes for a multifaceted eating experience as both the tomato and avocado add a subtle sweetness. The former also provides the dish with a bit of tang and acidity, while the latter has a mild, round nutty flavour.

The tomatoes and avocados’ sweetness is offset by the sharp and pungent flavour of the red onions, which also add a lovely crunch among the otherwise soft, chewy ingredients. Meanwhile, the cottage cheese provides a creamy texture while also ensuring a salty freshness to round out the topping selection. Its slightly tangy taste works well with the fluffy richness of the eggs and ensures a satisfying avocado omelette.

Experiment with other classic breakfast toppings

An avocado omelette is great with an umami addition. Whether you feel like mixing it up with a classic choice like salty diced ham or want to play around with a little heat in the form of spicy chorizo sausage, there are many great ways to use meaty toppings. As such, you can also use mushrooms, for example, portobello mushrooms or shiitake mushrooms, both adding a lot of umami.

The perhaps most obvious choice is to make an avocado bacon omelette. The salty taste and crispy texture of crumbled bacon work well with the buttery richness of the eggs as well as the creamy and crunchy toppings, in particular the velvety avocado. The slightly smoky flavour profile of a bacon avocado omelette makes for a very tasty breakfast.
