Brie, apple, and arugula omelette

I love eggs with fruit. I know that it sounds weird, but it's a great way to get a hint of sweetness with breakfast without eating a pastry or smoothie. One decadent combination is an omelette with bananas and almond butter, to which you can even add a sprinkling of dark chocolate chips. Or, the scramble suggested in It Starts With Food: "egg scramble with peaches, spinach, fresh basil, and chopped pecans". This one is simple, fantastic, and seems fancy but is easy to make. I love the combination of brie with apples. Fresh arugula adds a subtle bitterness that complements the richness of the cheese. You can definitely play around with this a bit: use a different soft cheese instead of the brie, a different variety of apples, or substitute baby spinach for the arugula.

BRIE, APPLE, AND ARUGULA OMELETTE
Serves 1

INGREDIENTS
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • About 1 oz (weight) brie slices (no need to measure, you can just eyeball it)
  • About 1 oz (weight) Granny Smith apple, sliced very thin (again, no need to measure)
  • Small handful of arugula leaves
  • Optional: sprinkle of truffle salt
  • Butter or other fat of choice for cooking
DIRECTIONS
  1. Heat a small skillet over medium.
  2. Add the butter and swirl to coat. Add the eggs and cook until the bottom seems solid but the top is still a bit wet. Add the apple, brie, and arugula on one side of the omelette. Sprinkle on a bit of truffle salt, if using. Fold the omelette over, cover, and turn off the heat. Let it sit for a few minutes (I leave it on the burner) until cheese is melted.
  3. Take off heat and serve!
