Muffuletta Flavored Omelet

If you’ve read my blog more than just a few times, you knew this had to be coming. I’ve used the muffuletta ingredients for a sandwich and on a pizza, so it’s only fitting I see how they work in an omelet. First, I diced up the meat (salami, mortadella, ham) and sautéed them in a little olive salad oil to warm them. Then, I dipped out the olive salad with a slotted spoon, drained it on paper towels, and chopped up the larger pieces.

I whipped up three eggs and started them cooking in a 10” skillet and distributed the olive salad around one half of the eggs to warm as they cooked. I put a lid on to help the top set up easier.

When the eggs were set, I added some sliced provolone to half, topped with the meats and more sliced cheese.

I folded, and plated but had trouble getting it out - we need a 10” non-stick pan.

It was very good, just as I expected it to be – after all, the egg is just another vehicle to deliver the meat, cheese and olive salad to your mouth. Now that I’ve had the sandwich, a pizza, and an omelet and enjoyed them all, I believe I prefer the basic cold muffuletta sandwich.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.



  1. Larry, we're going to start calling your place "Muffuletta Heaven North."
    You've come up with another great way to use those heavenly ingredients.

  2. Real men eat mufaletta omelets! :-) Well, it looks great Larry! Central Grocery will be knocking on your door and offering you a job of serving these up at their place.

  3. I would never have thought of this for an omelette . . . fun idea!

  4. LA - A simple royality would suffice.

    Vickie - When I was in college, eggs were about the cheapest things I could eat so I got very creative with them.

  5. What a great breakfast. That's the fantastic thing about omelets - they are good with just a little cheese and herbs and great with all the good stuff you've added to this one.

  6. Well, it's good that you've tried muffuletta all of these ways, so we'll all know what works best!

  7. Looks delicious, Larry.... i love breakfast --but we try to eat light except when we have our omelets on Saturday.

    Hope you have a good weekend.

  8. Fun with muffulettas, very creative. But sometimes the original is the best, right?

    You have me craving one of these. I have to go google who has the best one in Knoxville. Okay, looks like it will be Jasons or McAlisters.


I appreciate and enjoy your comments
