1/2 tablespoon butter, plus more if needed

1/2 cup sliced onion

3 large (or 4 small) mushrooms, sliced

1 pita, cut in half

1. Melt butter in skillet over medium-high heat, and add onions. Cook until translucent, 3 to 5 minutes. Add mushrooms and asparagus, and cook until mushrooms lose their moisture, another 3 to 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, remove and keep warm.

2. Add more butter to skillet if needed. Season eggs with salt and pepper, add to pan and cook, pushing eggs to the middle with a spatula and turning and swirling the pan to fill the gaps until almost completely cooked. Add cheese to one half of the eggs and top that half with onion-mushroom-asparagus mixture. Fold the other half of the egg over that half and remove from heat.

3. Cut omelette in half and place each half inside half of the pita.



1 bagel, savoury flavours only

1 tablespoon cream cheese

2 slices smoked salmon

1 slice red onion

1/2 teaspoon capers, optional

1/2 tablespoon butter

1 egg, beaten


1. Toast bagel if desired. Spread cream cheese on both cut sides of bagel, and top one side with smoked salmon, red onion and optional capers.

2. Melt butter in skillet (nonstick is best) over medium heat. Add beaten egg, trying to keep it from spreading too much in the pan. Gently cook without touching until the liquid on top is almost completely cooked. Fold up the sides toward the centre until the egg is the approximate size of the bagel. Place the egg on top of the other ingredients, and top with the other half of the bagel.

2 slices beef bacon or 2 ounces (scant 1/2 cup) sausage

1 tablespoon butter, divided

1/2 cup potato cut into 1/2-inch dice

Salt and pepper

1/4 small or medium onion, sliced

2 eggs, beaten

1/2 cup black beans, rinsed and drained

1 flour tortilla

1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

1/4 cup salsa

Sour cream, optional


1. Cook beef bacon or sausage. Crumble bacon or cut sausage into small pieces. Clean pan.

2. Melt 1 teaspoon (1/3 tablespoon) butter in skillet over medium-high heat. Add cubes of potato, sprinkle liberally with salt, cover and cook, tossing frequently, until potatoes are browned and cooked all the way through, about 10 minutes. Remove from pan.

3. Melt remaining 2 teaspoons (2/3 tablespoon) butter in pan and add onions. Cook until translucent, 3 to 5 minutes. Add eggs, beans and cooked potatoes, season with salt and pepper, and scramble until eggs are almost done (they will continue to cook off the heat).

4. Place mixture on tortilla and sprinkle with cheese. Spoon salsa on top and fold tortilla over to form a burrito. Top with sour cream, if desired.
