Mouthwatering Food Storage Omelet

Delicious Food Storage Omelet from Simple Family Preparedness:

I know (from personal experience) that very few of you will actually believe me when I tell you this is the perfect omelet.  “How is that possible, when it is made from powdered eggs?”   you will ask yourself, just like I did for years.  I was scared of powdered eggs Eventually I tried them in baking (and loved them), but in an omelet?  No way!  But I’m here to tell you that this omelet is truly mouthwatering.

An omelet is truly the perfect breakfast: protein, dairy, and veggies.  Add a glass of orange juice, a piece of toast, and you are covered!  It goes great with french toast!

This omelet is made from the scrambled egg mix, not the whole egg powder.  The scrambled egg mix is more expensive, but oh is it worth it (and it is on sale this month)!  Both products are 100% egg (Thrive brand), but they are processed differently.  Heat is used with the whole egg powder, but not the scrambled egg mix.  The difference in taste is amazing.  I use the whole egg powder in all my baking (and actually like it better than fresh eggs in most recipes), but I do not like it for scrambled eggs or omelets.  It has an “off” taste.  But the scrambled egg mix is delicious.  It truly tastes just like fresh eggs!

All right, let’s get started!

Gather your ingredients.

Food Storage Omelet Ingredients:

For this omelet, I used asparagus, tomatoes, bell peppers, and green onions.  But you can use any freeze dried veggie that suits your craving for the day!  You could even add some ham or sausage if you wanted.

Mix cheese with egg powder and water.  The cheese will need a few minutes to hydrate so make sure you do this first.  *You can leave the cheese out if you prefer!

Eggs and cheese

Saute veggies in a dry non-stick pan over medium high heat (let the pan heat up a bit first) until they just barely start to brown.  This takes about 30 seconds with freeze dried veggies.

Saute Veggies Freeze Dried Veggies for omelet:

Add water.

Let the mixture firm up just a little (30-60 seconds or so), until the edges are just starting to brown, and then sprinkle the veggies over the top.

Turn heat down to medium, and let omelet cook for a few more minutes until nearly firm all the way through.  Then fold one side over onto the other:
