This easy-to-make cheese omelet doubles as scrambled eggs. It's something different every time you make it, and could be a sandwich too.

Do you like scrambled eggs? How about tasty cheese omelets? Do you like your eggs in a sandwich or alone on your plate?

This recipe is not only easy, and quick, but you can also make it into anything you prefer, or let it surprise you each time you make it.

I have to admit that as an omelet it tends to fall apart, so it's somewhere between an omelet and scramble. Nevertheless, the great taste is obvious no matter which way you eat it.

I like to include Smoked Gouda Cheese. That provides so much taste that you don't need to add any other seasonings or spices.

That's why this recipe is so simple to make. However, if you insist, feel free to experiment by adding some herbs that go well with eggs such as parsley, oregano, dill, or thyme.

Cook Time

Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 10 min
Ready in: 20 min
Yields: Two Servings

Ingredients for Two Servings

  • 3 Eggs
  • 2 Mushrooms
  • 2 Garlic Cloves
  • 1 Small Yellow Onion
  • 2 oz Gouda Cheese
  • 4 Slices Tuscan Whole Wheat Bread
  • 2 tsps Mazola Corn Oil

Controlling the Sodium


I don’t include any salt in the ingredients for this recipe since the cheese already has 224 mg sodium and the two slices of bread have 440 mg. Even the eggs have 105 mg sodium per serving (1 ½ eggs).

Instructions: Summary

See detailed instructions with pictures below.



I enjoy eating my omelet between two slices of toasted bread. I like using Tuscan Whole Wheat because I don't believe in plain old white bread, but this is all up to you based on your preference.

In addition, many types of bread contain a lot of sodium, so you may want to skip the bread if this is a concern for you and eat the omelet alone, or select a different kind of bread.

  1. Chop up one small onion and two mushrooms.
  2. Cut up two garlic cloves. If you prefer, you can use garlic powder or minced garlic.
  3. Break three eggs into a mixing bowl and whip it until all mixed.
  4. Heat 2 tbsp of Mazola Corn Oil in a pan on medium heat. Test if ready by dropping a piece of chopped onion in it. If it sizzles, it's hot enough.
  5. Drop in the rest of the onions and fry for a minute.
  6. Add the chopped mushrooms and garlic and continue frying for another two minutes.
  7. Put the slices of bread in a toaster at this point so they are ready when the eggs are done.
  8. Pour the whipped eggs over the mixture and quickly add the cut up cheese evenly over it.
  9. After a couple of minutes on medium heat, turn the mixture over with a spatula.
  10. After turning the mixture over a few times on medium heat, you'll know when it looks ready to serve. It shouldn't take more than a few minutes cooking time, or else the eggs get too dry.

After a couple of minutes on medium heat, turn the mixture over with a spatula.

This is where it gets tricky. Sometimes it sticks together and you can make an omelet, but because of the onions and mushrooms it tends to fall apart easily. In that case, I just consider it scrambled eggs instead.

Does it really matter? If you insist on an actual omelet you can try adding more cheese to help it stick together. Note that I'm not including milk or cream. My recipe just doesn't need it, but that might help it stick together too. Feel free to improvise. The fun part is to make this your way. There are no set rules.

After turning the mixture over a few times on medium heat, you'll know when it looks ready to serve.

It shouldn't take more than a few minutes cooking time, or else the eggs get too dry.

The bread should be toasted by now. Serve the eggs on the bread or serve without bread. Either way you'll have two servings of a wonderful, hardy, tasty, and totally enjoyable meal.

      FlourishAnyway - It sounds very similar. The difference is that you use green pepper and I include mushrooms. I like adding yellow peppers sometimes. They have more taste than green peppers, in my opinion.

      I really love scrambled eggs. Have never tried a sandwich. I often add cheese, onion, and green pepper for Texas Eggs.

      I love eggs anytime of the day, especially breakfast for dinner is always a nice change.

      When I get back on my laptop I will be sure to pin this to one of my boards.

      Yummy, Glenn!

      I love scrambled egg sandwichs and omelets, so this is a win win for me. A recipe must have good photos incorporated in it, just as you have done here.

      I will be sure to give this easy, yet so satisfying one a try soon!

      letstalkabouteduc - Thank you for you kind remarks Nancy. I actually took twice are many pictures while making the eggs one day. But then I had to be selective with which ones to use for the recipe Hub.
