Roasted Pepper and Sausage Omelet

paleo-recipes_roasted-pepper-sausage-omelet

Makes two omelets.

Approximate cooking time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

  • poblano, green chili or bell pepper
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tsp coconut oil
  • 1/2 lb nitrite/nitrate free beef or pork sausage links, cooked and sliced
  • 2 Tbs fresh parsley, chopped

Instructions

  1. Put pepper in a heavy bottomed pan over high heat.  Turn pepper as skin begins to blacken and blister on each side.  When blistered on all sides, remove from pan and put in a plastic bag with a few drops of water; seal the bag immediately with plenty of air trapped inside.  Wait 5 minutes.  Remove from bag, cut out seeds, remove skin and dice.
  2. Meanwhile, beat eggs in a small bowl and add freshly ground black pepper.
  3. Heat medium non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add 1 tsp coconut oil when hot.
  4. Add half of the egg mixture to hot pan. As the egg starts to set, add half of the remaining ingredients to one half of the pan.
  5. When fully set, fold half of the egg over the filling, and cook a minute more.
  6. Repeat with second omelet.

  1. New here. What is a Jones sausage?

    • Whoops, Jones was a name brand. Not sure how that got snuck in there. It’s removed. Just use normal sausage links.

  2. Real Paleo

    Egg Beaters aren’t Paleo, or even healthy for that matter….

    I am missing the info on what to do with the sausage in this recipe???

    • dandhal – See instruction #4. It falls in with “remaining ingredients”.

    Why coconut oil instead of olive oil?

    Just a question from what I understand the sausage should be weighed after cooking, but that is a lot of sausage per person. Am I correct with my understanding? Recipe very nice though.

    • Neely Quinn

      monica – Thanks! The sausage should be weighed before cooking. That’s the general practice with this website’s recipes.

    Thanks Neely, didn’t know that but can tell you one thing I am still full from my breakfast :) Sorry new to the website and paleo life style.

  7. Tomorrow I’m planning to start this new “way of life” I am liking the fact that your site and our prescription allows me to post questions/comments. I expect that I will need help to start, but I am looking forward to this.

  8. The first post some mention Jones? I eat Jones sausage patties now! Are they consider paleo?

  9. Hello. Can I use jarred roasted red peppers in this recipe? Thanks

    • Angel – Absolutely. Just make sure there aren’t any suspect ingredients in the jarred roasted red peppers…
