Caprese Omelet Recipe

Caprese Omelet Recipe

I’m a huge fan of caprese salad, especially right now when tomatoes and basil are literally growing like weeds in the garden! However, it isn’t very high in protein or fat and doesn’t make a good meal by itself. No worries; eggs fix everything! Enter the caprese omelet!

This omelet is very similar to the delicious salad version but with a much bigger protein punch. Tired of the usual bacon and eggs (say it isn’t so!)? Try this Italian variation! An omelet this good can’t be contained to just the breakfast realm — it makes a delicious lunch or dinner also.
