Caramelized Apple and Cheddar Omelette with Bacon and Candied Walnuts

Caramelized Apple and Cheddar Omelette with Bacon and Candied Walnuts


The other week while I was enjoying the exquisite caramelized pear and gorgonzola omelette with bacon and pecans I thought that apples also go well with gorgonzola. I just bet that an apple version would also be amazing! My thoughts drifted a bit then and I was thinking about how caramelizing the apples in the butter and brown sugar reminded me of apple pie. Then I had a strange thought; I had heard of apple pie being served with cheddar cheese. How about a caramelized apple and cheddar omelette? Once again, I could not resist throwing on some bacon and I had some candied walnuts on hand so they went on as well. The caramelized apple and cheddar omelette with bacon and candied walnuts turned out amazingly well! The sweet caramelized apples and the melted cheddar and the salty bacon flavour combos were so good and the crunchy candied walnuts added a nice contrasting texture. I really like the way the cheese and the caramel melted into the eggs infusing them with a mouth watering blend of sweet and savoury. I will definitely be making this omelette again and again. A perfect breakfast for a weekend morning!
