This hearty 20-minute entrée can be prepared for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, and it is perfectly portioned for cooking for one person. This omelet is filled with chicken sausage, mushrooms, onion, and roasted red peppers and finished with salty Pecorino Romano cheese and chopped parsley, which adds freshness and color. Italian sausages come in sweet and spicy varieties, so use your favorite in this recipe. When making omelets, it’s good practice to have all the fillings cooked and ready to go before you start cooking the eggs, since it’s a quick-cooking process that takes only a couple minutes per omelet.
