Artichoke Omelette

    artichoke omelette

    This unique artichoke omelette is packed with strong flavors and textures. Eggs form the base for artichoke hearts, roasted red pepper, and goat cheese. While simple to make, it’s impressive to look at and full of delicious tastes. 

    Great for breakfast or brunch, this is the omelette recipe to make for yourself when you’re staying home and want something sophisticated to get you through the morning but with minimal fuss—it only requires a few dishes, has a lot of staying power, and is very satisfying to eat. 

    This is the kind of recipe that requires a strong drink to go alongside it. Have it with a strong cup of coffee or black tea. You can serve it with a warm roll or herby bread. 

    This omelette is a bit like a puffy omelette. Although a puffy omelette is often made by separating the egg yolks and whites and whipping the egg whites, we will use a big balloon whisk to incorporate a lot of air into the eggs.

    The lid will also help them to rise and cook inside the pan. This omelette is not folded, so you will want to think about how to organize the toppings in an attractive way. 

    What You Need to Make an Artichoke Omelette

    You will need large eggs, artichoke hearts, roasted red peppers, salt, pepper, oil, and goat cheese. Use the artichoke hearts that you prefer, be they canned or jarred. Just make sure you strain them well before using them. You can also use sautéd peppers instead of roasted red peppers if you prefer.

    ingredients to make an artichoke omelette

     Ingredients:

    • Large eggs
    • Artichoke hearts
    • Roasted red peppers 
    • Table salt
    • Pepper
    • Goat cheese

    Equipment: 

    This recipe requires a nonstick frying pan, a bowl, a big balloon whisk, a spatula, a lid or cover to go over your pan (I use a soup pot lid), a cutting board, and a knife. You may also need a can opener if you are using canned artichoke hearts. I like to use cooking spray to grease the pan because the omelette will rise up the side of the pan, but you can also use 1-2 teaspoons of oil or butter. 

    How To Make an Artichoke Omelette

    Prepare the topping: Slice the roasted red pepper into thin strips. Crumble the goat cheese. Drain and pat dry the artichokes. 

    Prepare the eggs: Whisk your eggs and 1 teaspoon of water together in a large bowl with a large balloon whisk. Whisk until very light and frothy.

    Make the omelette: Heat a small frying pan on medium heat. Pour the eggs into the prepared pan. Then, working quickly, arrange the red pepper, artichokes, and goat cheese on the omelette and cover it with a lid.

    Allow to cook for 4-5 minutes or until the eggs have set. The omelette will puff up while it is cooking but will recede a little after you remove it from the heat.

    Recipe FAQs

    Can I swap the goat cheese?

    Goat cheese is a strong flavor, so feel free to experiment with another flavor that you like more. I love using feta cheese. You could also try adding some dried oregano on top of the dish or even kalamata olives to make it more of an artichoke omelette reminiscent of a Greek salad. 

    Can I make this in advance?

    Omelettes are best eaten while they are hot. I do not recommend trying to reheat an already-cooked omelette. 

    Can I fold the omelette?

    You can fold the omelette. If you do this, you will want to only put your fillings on one side of the omelette when you are cooking the eggs. 

    Why add the water?

    I find that for this recipe the little bit of water helps open up the eggs and gives them a nice fluffy structure and texture. If you forget this step, don’t worry, it will still taste great!
