Eye-Opener Omelet

Makes 2 servings

This delicious omelet is worth getting up for any day! It's also great as a light lunch or supper, and when serving it I like to offer a little extra Magic Pepper Sauce to really open an eye.

1 tablespoon + 2 teaspoons margarine or unsalted butter, in all
¼ cup chopped onions
¼ cup chopped celery
¼ cup chopped green bell peppers
2 teaspoons minced garlic
½ cup canned crushed tomatoes
½ cup chicken stock
6 large eggs, in all
¼ cup milk, in all
how to prepare

Melt 1 tablespoon of the margarine or butter in a heavy 10-inch skillet over high heat.  When it sizzles add the onions, celery, bell peppers and 1 tablespoon of the Poultry Magic®.  Cook and stir for 2 minutes, then stir in the garlic.  Reduce the heat to medium and cook, stirring and scraping as the vegetables brown and start to stick, for 2 minutes more.  Stir in the tomatoes and cook for 1½ minutes.  Add the stock and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are soft and the sauce is thick, about 15 minutes.  Remove from the heat. 

This recipe makes enough sauce for 2 omelets, but each omelet is made individually.  For the first omelet, whip together 3 eggs, 2 tablespoons milk, 1 teaspoon Poultry Magic®, and ¼ teaspoon Magic Pepper Sauce® until frothy. 

Melt 1 teaspoon margarine or butter in a heavy 9-inch skillet over medium-high heat.  When it sizzles add the egg mixture and cook until the eggs begin to set, about 30 seconds.  As soon as there is a base of cooked egg on the bottom, use a spatula to pull the eggs from the outer edge of the pan toward the middle, giving the uncooked egg mixture a chance to cook.  Continue pulling the cooked portion toward the center of the pan, cooking for about 2 minutes or until the eggs are almost cooked through.  The top should still be a little loose.  Spoon about ¼ cup of the sauce over half the omelet and fold the other side over to form a half-moon shape.  Carefully slide the omelet onto a serving plate, and spoon another ¼ cup sauce on top.  Repeat with the remaining ingredients to make the other omelet.  Serve immediately.
