Hello my almond butter loving friends. If you're new to HEAB, you may like to subscribe to my RSS feed or receive my posts via email. Thanks for reading!

Several of you have asked how I make my omelets, and so I took photos of every step this morning. Now, I have never been schooled in the proper way to prepare an omelet. However, this method is super simple, and it works every time.

First I whisk together 1 whole egg and 2 egg whites with a fork, and it’s much more fun if you do it in a fun bowl from Polly. :)

I then pour the egg mixture into a small greased skillet warmed over medium-high heat. Keep in mind, I have a gas stove, and the cooking times may be faster than an electric one.

After allowing the egg mixture to cook for about 90 seconds, I add the fillings to the center of the omelet. This morning, I used this AMAZING cheese. (Thanks to everyone who recommended it to me! And yes, I know pregnant women should not eat soft cheeses, but this was pasteurized and heated. So, all is good.)

Allow the eggs to set, and when they are no longer super runny and the cheese is starting to melt (about 1 minute), flip half of your omelet over with a thin metal spatula.

I then let the omelet cook for another minute or so and never bother flipping it.

5 minute breakfast: Goat milk brie omelet with my favorite frozen waffles cooked up crisp in the toaster oven and topped with apple butter. Perfect. :)

Couldn’t be more simple! Enjoy your Monday my friends. :)

P.S. Who watched LOST last night? I felt awful and fell asleep 10 minutes into it, but I’m looking forward to watching it tonight. Don’t tell me what happened. Anyone else sad it’s all over? :(
