Scallion, Ham & Brie Omelettes

Tonight was our first foray into the not-oft used vegetables we got in our CSA share this week - scallions. Mr. ValleyWriter doesn't like onions, so I generally stay away from anything onion-related. But he said he was willing to try the scallions, so I took a cue from my friend Prof. Kitty's Ramp & Nettle Omelets. She said ramps were like scallions - and who can resist brie? - so I figured I'd give it a shot. I added ham to help make the hubby happy.


I served it with a side salad made with the butterhead lettuce we also got in the share this week. I was very happy with how the omelettes turned out. The brie was so gooey and creamy - absolutely delicious. Mr. ValleyWriter, however, has not turned over a new leaf when it comes to onion-like vegetables. He quickly declared "the scallions just get in the way." Oh well, can't make them happy every time. But if you do like scallions or onions, give this combination a try. It's delish!

I love omelettes especially when there's stuff mixed in it. That's one simple and delicious looking omelette perfect for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

I've never tried brie in an omelette but it sounds wonderful! I'm sorry that Mr. ValleyWriter was not converted but I would gladly take a plate of this.

mmmmmm brie omlette. I'm not a big fan of scallions even though I do like onions. I think thr flavor is too sharp.

Tangled - I'd never tried brie in an omelette before, either, but I'm a convert. It's incredible!

LK - Hmm... I'd never considered that scallions might have a sharper flavor than onions. Maybe that's why he didn't like it so much. Oh well, at least he gave it a try - now we know!
