Bill’s Spanish Omelet

“Spanish Omelet – you love it or hate it and my husband Bill really LOVES it!  Me, I can’t even stand the smell, ha-ha!  He orders it out, but today I prepped what he likes in it, and HE put all that stuff in and made it!  Good!  Now maybe I can get him to do the prepping, but I doubt it!  It takes just a few minutes to actually make.

I used Executive White House Chef Henry Haller’s easy technique.   I really love his cookbook!  It is so interesting how he weaves history and stories with his recipes.

 You can change the ingredients to whatever you like in your Spanish Omelet, these are just Bill’s preferences, and amounts!  Enjoy!”

Servings:  2


1 tablespoon butter

3 eggs, room temperature

¼ teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

½ cup Salsa

½ cup mixture of onions, celery, and red peppers, thinly sliced

⅛ cup Spanish olives, whole or sliced

⅓ cup chopped or coarsely grated Swiss cheese

1 tablespoon grated Romano cheese

1 tablespoon fresh parsley

fresh parsley sprig for garnish


  1. In a small bowl, beat the eggs, and season with the salt and pepper. Set aside.
  2. In the microwave, soften the onions, celery, and read peppers just a little, about 1 minute.
  3. Warm the salsa in the microwave for 1 minute.
  4. In a 6 or 8-inch skillet, heat the butter over medium high heat.
  5. Pour in the eggs, letting it set for a few minutes, until the eggs begin to puff up around the edges. Use a spatula to keep the edges nice and round. Lift the pan a few inches from the heat source and swirl the pan a few times.
  6. Return the pan to the heat source and spoon the warm salsa, veggies, Spanish olives and chopped parsley into the center of the eggs. Sprinkle the cheeses on top of the salsa mixture and continue cooking for 1 minute, or until the bottom of the omelet is firmly set.
  7. Use the spatula to fold the omelet in half. Slide it onto a serving dish.  Garnish with parsley sprig.
