October is World Egg Month! (#Giveaway)

October is World Egg Month, how EGG-citing is that?! (Get it, Egg-citing? lol) Who doesn't love eggs? Whether they're made into a delicious omelette, added to our favorite cake batter or even hard boiled, eggs are super delicious and in this household a must on a daily.

In honor of World Egg Month, Egg Farmers of Ontario have created a seasonal apple and sausage omelette, which is perfect for the whole family to enjoy, especially since Christmas will be here before you know it. How great would this new dish be for Christmas breakfast or brunch with the family?!

Did you know that in a new Angus Reid survey, held September 11th to September 12th, 2013, it showed that Ontarians are tossing everything from jalapeno peppers, curried apples and chocolate chips into their omelettes for a new look and taste that adds “eggs-citement” to any meal? While cheese, veggies and meat are still some of the top choices, we aren't afraid to think outside the box and put a creative spin on the classic omelette.

2 tsp canola oil
2 mild or hot Italian sausages, casings removed
4 green onions, whites and greens, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 Cortland, Honey Crisp or Spartan apples, cored and chopped
1/4 tsp fennel seeds, crushed (optional)
Pinch freshly grated nutmeg
6 eggs
3 tbsp water
Pinch freshly ground black pepper

In a 12 inch non stick, oven proof skillet, heat 1 tsp of the oil over medium high heat and cook sausage, green onions and garlic, breaking up with a spoon, for 3 minutes. Stir in apple, fennel (if using) and nutmeg; cook, stirring for about 4 minutes or until sausage is no longer pink and apples are tender crisp. Scrape into a bowl; set aside. Return skillet to medium low heat and add remaining 1 tsp oil.

In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, water and pepper. Pour into skillet and cook, stirring gently until eggs start to set. Place under the broiler for 3 minutes or until eggs are completely set and puffed. Slide the omelette onto a serving platter and spread sausage mixture on half of the omelette. Fold remaining half over sausage filling to cover.
