I like the light, freshness of Capris salad, especially when I have more tomatoes and basil in the garden than I know what to do! However, it is not high in protein or fat, two things that make sure our family wakes up in the morning. Enter Capress Omelette!
What is Capress?
Caprice is an Italian salad made with chopped fresh tomatoes, mozzarella, and basil with a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkling of salt. This is the best appetizer or aspect of summer. You can definitely prepare it at other times of the year, but the freshness of the season can’t be picked out of the garden this season.
Turning a Capris salad into a Capris omelette
Caprice omelette is very similar to the delicious salad version but with a larger cartoon of protein.
To make it, I toss together the egg, salt and pepper, and garlic powder for the egg portion of the omelette. I sprinkle over half the colored or chopped tomatoes, mozzarella and basil. I give it a few minutes to cook, then turn the other half over the tomatoes and cheese.
Give the cheese another minute to melt, and that’s it!
This good omelette can not only be in the circle of breakfast – it also makes a delicious lunch or dinner!
A few tips for making omelettes:
- Cook over medium heat so that it does not overcook.
- Use a good pan. I have a set of non-stick ceramic pans that are amazing for making omelettes.

Because they are a quick and healthy source of protein, we have plenty of eggs for breakfast. I can take most of the leftovers and turn them into omelette or fruit filling. Here are some of our favorite egg-based snacks:
I also have a whole post dedicated to egg-free breakfast! Check it out here.
Capress omelette recipe
A beautiful capris salad with eggs for a full meal
Melt the butter in a medium skillet over medium-low heat.
In a small bowl, fry the eggs with the garlic and salt, and pepper, along with the fork and season.
Put the eggs in the skeleton and sprinkle with half the tomatoes, basil and cheese.
When the eggs are partially set, add the tomatoes, basil and cheese to the empty half to cover the sides.
If needed, turn back and cook until set.
Remove and immediately top with more tomatoes, basil, and cheese and drizzle with olive oil if desired.
A great pan makes all the difference.
