Butternut Squash and Caramelized Onion Omelette with Gorgonzola and Sage

Butternut Squash and Caramelized Onion Omelette with Gorgonzola and Sage

With the hustle and bustle of the holidays it is always nice to be able to sit down and relax while having a nice warm home cooked breakfast. Lately I have been enjoying playing with omelettes which are always nice for a slow weekend breakfasts. I have also been thinking about the roasted butternut squash with caramelized onions, gorgonzola and crispy fried sage side dish ever since I made it and I thought that an omelet version would work out really well. Instead of roasting the butternut squash I was thinking that I could just add it to the pan after caramelizing the onions. Once the squash was tender I could add the sage and gorgonzola and let it start to melt before pouring in the eggs. A nice one pan omelette! The butternut squash and caramelized onion omelette with gorgonzola and sage turned out beautifully! The sweet caramelized onions and butternut squash went really well with the tangy gorgonzola and sage and the warm just set eggs wrapped everything up really quite nicely. Once again I was reminded of how amazing this flavour combination really is! While I was enjoying the omelette I was daydreaming about new flavour combinations that I would like to try in omelettes...

I've actually been wondering whether this combination would work in an omelet. I wasn't sure about the sweetness of the squash combined with the eggs, but I trust your judgment implicitly!
