Start your day right with this quick and easy Tomato Oatmeal Omelet. It is delicious and takes only 15 minutes to prepare.
I cannot stress enough the importance of breakfast, the first meal of the day. Breakfast provides us the fuel we want to start our day off right. For my family, it is one meal of the day we never skip. Our breakfasts are usually quite simple but they are warm and accompanied with hot tea or coffee.
Eggs for Breakfast
Most mornings, I have a slice of toast with cheese and sometimes a thin slice of meat. When I know I have a busier morning and want to feel full longer, I like to prepare an egg for myself such as hard boiled eggs, scrambled eggs, and egg bake.
Adding to the list today is this Tomato Oatmeal Omelet breakfast that will give you the energy needed to start your day. It takes about 15 minutes to prepare and requires just a few ingredients including oats.

Tomato Oatmeal Omelet
Today’s Tomato Oatmeal Omelet is an easy one to prepare. Since I am using Old Fashioned Quaker® Oats, I had to cook it first with some milk. It took only 5 minutes to cook. After which it was mixed with two eggs and a little bit of salt and ground pepper. The rest of the cooking took just another 5 minutes.
- ½ cup low fat milk (120ml)
- 1/8 tsp salt
- ¼ cup Old Fashioned Quaker® Oats (20g)
- 1 tsp vegetable oil
- 4 cherry tomatoes (halved)
- 2 large eggs
- ¼ tsp ground pepper
- 2 green onions (thinly sliced)
- Boil milk in a small saucepan. Add salt and oats. Cook for 5 minutes over medium heat stirring occasionally. Transfer oatmeal to a medium bowl and allow it to cool.
- Crack eggs into bowl with oatmeal. Add ground pepper. Whisk eggs and oatmeal until combined.
- Heat vegetable oil in an 8 inch non-stick fry pan. Pan fry tomatoes for about 30 seconds on each side. Remove tomatoes from fry pan.
- Pour eggs and oatmeal mixture into fry pan. Sprinkle green onions on the top. Let the eggs cook and set over medium heat, about 2 minutes.
- Flip the omelet and arrange pan fried tomatoes onto one half of the omelet. After 1 minute, fold the other half of the omelet over the tomatoes.
- Remove from pan and serve immediately.
