One of my favorite things about going on vacation is breakfast.  Seriously!  Ok, the vacation itself is pretty awesome, but I love going out for breakfast.  With an almost-4-year-old here in the house, we don’t have many opportunities to make legit breakfasts.  On weekdays, we’re out of the house by 7am for preschool, and on weekends, we’re usually running around grabbing clothes for swim lessons or heading off on our Daddy-Robbie weekend grocery store trips.  (We like to shop early in the morning when the store is still quiet!)

Breakfast for breakfast?  Breakfast for dinner?  Let's do both!  Take your omelet to the next level by turning it into a Philly Cheesesteak Omelet!However, with that said, I still get my breakfast food…just rarely at breakfast time.  I often make a simple omelet and a piece of wheat toast for lunch.  It’s quick, easy and delicious.  Plus, as much as I love a good sandwich, there’s something to be said for eating a hot lunch.  Breakfast for dinner isn’t unheard of around here, either.  Growing up, breakfast for dinner was always one of my favorite nights!  Who’s with me on the breakfast for dinner train??

Channeling that breakfast for dinner vibe, I recently decided to make omelets for dinner.  However, I wanted to take those omelets to the next level.  I love a good Philly cheesesteak with the sauteed onions and peppers along with the thinly sliced steak.  So many awesome flavors going on there!  So I decided to combine that Philly cheesesteak with an omelet to make this Philly Cheesesteak Omelet.  Let me tell ‘ya – these omelets will be on regular rotation around here now!

Breakfast for breakfast?  Breakfast for dinner?  Let's do both!  Take your omelet to the next level by turning it into a Philly Cheesesteak Omelet!To make things even easier, I used Egg Beaters® Original.  Egg Beaters is made using real eggs, but it’s only about half the calories as shell eggs.  Egg Beaters is made with all-natural egg whites, so it’s a nutritious alternative to shell eggs.  Plus, it’s easy!  There’s no cracking or cleanup involved.  Just pour out the amount needed, put the top back on the container and store the rest in the fridge for next time (i.e. tomorrow).  Speaking on the container, Egg Beaters has brand new packaging, so keep an eye out for that when you’re at the store.

Breakfast for breakfast?  Breakfast for dinner?  Let's do both!  Take your omelet to the next level by turning it into a Philly Cheesesteak Omelet!As I mentioned above, Robbie and I do our grocery shopping early on one of the weekend mornings.  Robbie likes to help by holding my list and reading it to me.  As cute as this is, it certainly slows down the shopping process.  We were at Walmart this past weekend on our regular shopping trip, and he kept telling me I need to go to the egg aisle.  He can’t read yet, but I had told him I needed Egg Beaters, so he kept repeating it to me…all the way through the store.  He must have been really worried that I would forget!  Oh, and we also had to make a stop by the Halloween and Christmas decorations to see the “scary dragon and Santa Claus.”  I only have vague memories of shopping trips pre-Robbie, but they must have been so boring!

Breakfast for breakfast?  Breakfast for dinner?  Let's do both!  Take your omelet to the next level by turning it into a Philly Cheesesteak Omelet!If you’re looking for one heck of a delicious breakfast (or breakfast for dinner) idea, then I highly recommend this Philly Cheesesteak Omelet.  Thanks to the shaved lean beef as well as the Egg Beaters, this is one protein powerhouse of a meal.  (Egg Beaters Original has no cholesterol or fat, and each serving packs 5g of protein – or 10% recommended daily value.)  No matter whether you’re making it for breakfast or dinner, I hope you enjoy this Philly Cheesesteak Omelet as much as we do!  Cheers!

For the Cheesesteak

For the Omelet


For the Cheesesteak

  • Using a large sauté pan, add 1 Tbsp of oil and place over medium-high heat. Once hot, add sliced onions and peppers. Sauté, stirring occasionally, for 8-10 minutes, or until vegetables have softened.
  • Add garlic and continue sautéing, stirring occasionally, for 1-2 more minutes.
  • Transfer cooked vegetables into a separate mixing bowl; set aside.
  • Add remaining 1 Tbsp of oil; spread shaved steak out into an even layer in the pan. Sprinkle salt and pepper on top of steak and let cook for 3-4 minutes. Flip steak and continue sautéing until fully cooked.
  • Transfer cooked steak into bowl with cooked vegetables. Add shredded cheese and stir until well combined.

For the Omelet

  • Using a medium mixing bowl, add Egg Beaters, salt, pepper, Parmesan cheese and green onions; whisk until well combined.
  • Spray a large sauté pan with nonstick cooking spray. Add half of the mixture and place pan over medium heat.
  • Cook for 3 minutes, or until edges of omelet begin to set. Using a spatula, lift one edge and tilt pan in that direction to allow uncooked mixture to run beneath.
  • Continue cooking for 1-2 more minutes, or until set.
  • Divide the cheesesteak mixture into two equal portions; set one portion aside.
  • Spread most of first portion of cheesesteak mixture in a row down center of omelet. Fold the omelet into thirds (like an envelope). Garnish top of the omelet with the remaining cheesesteak mixture.
  • Repeat process with the remaining Egg Beaters mixture and remaining cheesesteak portion.
  • Garnish both omelets with additional sliced green onions before serving.

    I’m definitely with ya for the breakfast for dinner train! We love eggs in our home and especially omelettes that look as good as this one! Talk about taking a classic sandwich and reinventing it omlette style. Love it! Nice and hearty and will fill ya up for a nice while! This with some toast and plenty of coffee and I’m set 🙂 Delish, my friend. Happy Monday!

    1. I’m all about the Philly cheesesteak! Steak, peppers and onions combine for such a great sandwich…or for stuffing into an omelet! 🙂 And I second that call for plenty of coffee. Thanks, Dawn!

    I love breakfast for dinner! And I love a hearty breakfast–this looks delicious! It’s pretty hard to beat a good omelet isn’t it? Have a great week, David!

    What? No cholesterol or fat? Maybe I need to try those Egg Beaters, my doctor would be happy! But Philly Cheesesteak Omelets – a perfect breakfast for dinner, David, because we are definitely on that train too!

    1. Haha! Yup, the doctor would be happy indeed. And your belly will be happy when you eat these omelets, too. So many good flavors packed into this one! Thanks, Laura!

  4. okay i’m a wee bit confused as to what egg beaters are:) if they are whole eggs, why not just buy them in the shell? just confused; not being contrary, honestly 🙂 your omelette sounds delicious david. and yes i agree breakfast for dinner is perfect… cheers sherry

    1. Haha! I get it, Sherry. I’m assuming Egg Beaters aren’t available Down Under? The Original ones (like I used here) are 99% egg whites with a bit of beta carotene and other minerals/vitamins added in. Nice and easy for making quick omelets! Also, steak and eggs is a great combination! 🙂

    Brave to go into the grocery store with Robbie! Years ago I visited Philly airport, and ventured into town solely to have a cheesesteak (well that and geek out by visiting Independence Hall). I never considered putting it in an omelette! What a cool, and tasty, sounding dish!

    1. So at first it was brave to go into a store with Robbie. Now it’s just part of our routine. He enjoys going with me, and Laura enjoys getting the house to herself for a bit. Granted, we go early in the morning while the store is still mostly empty, but it works. Also, steak, peppers, onions and eggs make for a great combination! 🙂 Thanks, Matt!

    Well at least you have someone to keep you company while shopping! Loving this omelette. So diner style and I love diners! My daughter lives in Philly so I must pass this on. Think I’ll have to make it for her when she comes home!

    1. Yes! That’s a good point about this omelet. It screams yummy diner food, and I do enjoy a good diner. 🙂 I’m thinking this really would be a fun recipe to make when your daughter comes home! Thanks, Abbe!

  7. On weekend I always have simple breakfast (like yogurt), but I like to enjoy my weekend breakfast. While occasionally I can make something sweet, most of the times I opt for something savoury like polenta. That’s why this omelette with cheesesteak (My autocorrect option insists on “cheesecake”!) sounds like a perfect alternative! I’ll have this breakfast for breakfast, for dinner, and perhaps (not) instead my dessert 🙂

    1. That’s like us. Weekdays is definitely easy breakfasts, like yogurt or cereal. But the weekends is where I (sometimes) get a chance to make my favorite breakfasts! I’m glad you fixed the cheesecake autocorrect…but now you have me wondering. Can we combine those two!? Hah. Don’t actually answer that question!

    I’m with you, David – breakfast is totally perfect for any meal of the day. We have 5 year old twins and are finally having great varied breakfasts so your time might still come, actually having hot breakfast in the morning (7am out the door is way too early – eek!). That said, philly cheesesteak is one of my absolute favourites so this gets big thumbs up from me!

    1. Ok, so you’re saying there is hope for my breakfasts again! I’m going to hold you to that, Katerina. 🙂 I love Philly cheesesteaks, too, and turning them into omelet form was definitely delicious…even if I ate this for lunch instead of breakfast. Haha!

    1. Breakfast for dinner is such a fun idea, right? I always get excited for dinner when we make breakfast food. 🙂 And this omelet really is quite delicious. Now I’m thinking I want to make it again for dinner tonight! Thanks, Dawn!

  9. 5 stars
    Hey weren’t we just talking about breakfast for dinner? 😉 Love, love this! My mom is a philly cheesesteak nut, I think I’ll surprise her with this when we’re visiting for the holidays!

    1. We were indeed just talking about breakfast for dinner! Funny how that works, huh? 🙂 You should totally make this omelet for your mom when she visits. It’s deee-licious! Thanks, Marissa!

    Omlettes are one of our favourite weekend foods David. And we’re happy to eat them for both breakfast and dinner! Love this Philly Cheesesteak Omelet. Can’t beat a good omelette with peppers and steak in. Yum!

    1. I’m right there with ya on the omelet train, Neil! They really do work for both breakfast and dinner. Adding the steak, peppers and onions here really took this to a new level for me. Delicious! Thanks so much!

    eventually, i got some time to view some of your recipes i have tried some of your main course and dessert recipes and it turn out to be so great we rarely go out for dinner thanks to you and i really need a handy book of your recipes please let me know if its available thanks 🙂

    1. Haha! Thanks so much, Mary! I don’t currently have a book of my recipes as they all live here on the blog online. However, that’s an excellent idea to look into. Keep cooking, my friend! 🙂

      1. hi david
        i think “mary anderson” is a scammer-type bot not a real person! you can tell by the stilted bot language and the weird page her name sends to you. maybe watch out for ‘her’. cheers sherry

        1. Hmmm…thanks so much for the note, Sherry! It’s a constant battle trying to weed out spam. “Mary’s” responses have been relevant on other posts, but I agree this one seems odd.
