Things are opening up here, and with the weather getting better, outdoor dining is back.

One of my favorite outdoor dining activities is a weekend brunch. It’s more casual than a night out, more relaxing, and a great way to end a stressful week.

At a fave brunch spot recently, my husband had an omelet filled with flavorful ingredients from the Mediterranean — olives, pickled peppers, sun dried tomatoes and tons of fresh herbs. He loved it and begged me to make him something similar at home.

And this is it. It’s not exactly the same as the brunch omelet, but it’s pretty close, and super delicious. The key is flavorful ingredients. I used olives, sun dried tomatoes, and cherry peppers, both sweet and hot for contrast. Some feta would be great here, but I didn’t have any. The next time I make this (and there will be a next time!) it’s going to have feta.

Omelets are a great way to experiment on your own, so do that here, and you’ll be happy with the end result.
