Several weeks ago I did a post about how beans can provide a wonderful and inexpensive allergy-free meal, especially when you are feeding a large family. Eggs are another "secret weapon" in the war against high priced, nutrient-empty meals for the allergy crowd (assuming that you are not dealing with an egg allergy, of course!).
Omelets are a weekly event at our house. It is the one night that children are allowed to customize their meal according to their preferences.That is a big deal around here...and let me tell you, creativity abounds!!! Here are some of the toppings we keep on hand so that omelet night is never boring:
fresh peppers ( green, red, yellow,orange)
diced fresh tomatoes
Rotel canned tomatoes ( mild, regular, or HOT)
Cajun seasoning ( McCormick brand is gluten free)
salt and pepper
...and whatever else we happen to find in the kitchen...the options are limitless!
If you have your own chickens and your own garden with fresh herbs, greens, peppers, and tomatoes, omelets can be the ultimate fresh and economical meal during the summer months! And don't forget about quiche as another egg option. Milk substitutes work very well in quiche if you are needing to avoid dairy. A crust-less quiche is a great gluten-free option.
