Cheesy BBQ Pulled Pork Omelette

    pulled pork omelette

    This southern-inspired breakfast is so hearty and satisfying, not to mention incredibly easy to make (once the pulled pork is ready). I like to pair it with some fresh greens and ciabatta bread, but the decision is entirely yours.

    Making pulled pork at home is no simple task. Nor is it a short one! Because of its lengthy cook time, I’ll usually make it worthwhile by purchasing a large pork shoulder and cooking it all in one go. Naturally, that makes for a lot of food, so I like to make this pulled pork omelette for breakfast for the following few days.

    What I love about this recipe is that you can add whatever veggies to it. Some days, I like red bell peppers in my pulled pork omelette, other days I like mushrooms and spinach. You can easily keep things interesting day to day, without getting bored with your leftovers.

    What You Need to Make a Pulled Pork Omelette

    To make this omelette, you’ll need eggs, onions, a red bell pepper, mozzarella cheese, pulled pork, and your favorite BBQ sauce. You can even buy some pre-cooked BBQ pulled pork to make the process all the easier.

    Recipe FAQs

    How can I make this vegetarian or vegan?

    A great substitute for pulled pork is jackfruit. It has a similar taste and texture to pulled pork when cooked. A great egg substitution is chickpea flour. It’s high in protein and fiber and, once cooked, it has a similar flavor and texture to eggs.

    What would you pair a pulled pork omelette with?

    Since this dish is quite filling on its own, I’d pair it with a fresh salad and some toasted ciabatta bread. You can also keep the southern theme by serving it with a side of bacon and a small bowl of grits.

    Notes

    You can add whatever veggies to this recipe. Some days, I like red bell peppers in my pulled pork omelette, other days I like mushrooms and spinach. So long as the mozzarella is the first filling ingredient to be added! You want to ensure it gets all nice and melty.
    You need a careful hand, especially when it comes to the flip. Many are led to believe that the best flip is done in one swift move, but the key is in how gently it’s done. If you’re not confident in your flipping skills, you can also cook the eggs into a “pancake” and top it with the pulled pork and the rest of the filling.
    To make this recipe vegan, you can swap out pulled pork for jackfruit. It has a similar taste and texture to pulled pork when cooked! A great egg substitution is chickpea flour. It’s high in protein and fiber and, once cooked, it has a similar flavor and texture to eggs.
