Food, again...

We had taco salad with our friend on Sunday. As always, there were leftovers. One of my very favorite ways to use leftover taco stuff is to make a Greek omelet. I know, mixing the Mexican stuff into something Greek seems kinda…hmm…cross cultural or something, doesn’t it?

Before moving 20+ miles away from the neighboring towns we grew up in, we used to like eating breakfast at a little diner called “Margie’s”. This is where we met Greek omelets. The restaurant went out of business several years ago so we have no chance to go back once in a while and indulge our craving. Obviously, our only choice is to reproduce them at home. It’s pretty basic and easy.

Make your egg the way you normally would. For filling, top your omelet with leftover taco seasoned meat, onion, green pepper, tomato, pepperoncini, feta cheese, and cheddar cheese. Fold it over however you usually do. That’s it. Of course, I don't often serve it with the cinnamon raisin toast Margie's offered. It's a great option if you've got it though.

Please don’t tell the food police I’m calling this Greek food. ;-)

  1. Hi Karen,
    I just came over from Kathy's Cottage who recommended your site. And I'm so glad she did! This Greek omelet is a fabulous idea! I'll have to give it a try. Sounds so yummy to me.

    I sure won't tell if you want to call that Greek cooking! It sounds really good, and I'm strangely craving eggs now...

  4. Good morning...I just visited Kathy and wanted to say welcome.

    I've enjoyed reading all your posts and I love all the pictures. I can tell you are a great cook...the omelet sounds and looks delish(I love anything Mexican) and the Oatmeal Squares looks so yummy...I think I just gained a pound:). Hugs, Linda
