Why You'll Love this Omelet Recipe

Cheese and eggs are always a good idea, but this omelet is really special because it highlights one of springtime's most delicious vegetables - the delicate ramp.

Ramps, also called wild leeks or ramsons, have are alliums with a flavor milder than onions, but stronger than leeks. They also have undertones of garlic.

Ramps show up in early spring and impart great flavor to any dish that calls for a green onion. You can forage for them or purchase them at a farmer's market or some specialty grocery stores.

Ingredients for a Ramp & Feta Omelet

For this recipe, you'll need 5 eggs, a 1/3 cup of crumbled feta cheese, some butter, and a half teaspoon of kosher salt, and a quarter teaspoon of ground black pepper. You'll also need 4 ramps or 1/2 cup chopped ramps.

If you want to forage your own ramps, here's a guide to sustainably harvesting them. Because of the popularity of ramps they've become over-harvested in the wild and unless you leave the roots in the ground they won't grow back. The ones I purchase were cultivated and sold by a farmer (hence why they have roots). If you harvest them wild, cut them off above the roots so they'll grow back next year!

Tips for Making this Recipe

Cooking Tips - If your eggs are burning or cooking too quickly on the bottom but not on the top, turn down the heat.

Recommended Tools - We recommend cooking this in a nonstick skillet. It's much easier to scoop and flip half the omelet over.

Storing Tips - This recipe is best served immediately, but if you'd like to save some for later, it will keep in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
