Pesto Caprese Omelette

The trick to these omelettes is to place the mozzarella into the eggs while they cook so that it melts and then place the tomatoes and pesto in later so that they both remain as fresh as possible! I have to say that the pesto caprese omelettes are both a great way to start the day and to enjoy some of summers produce!

  1. 1 ripe tomato, diced
  2. 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  3. salt and pepper to taste
  4. 2 eggs, lightly beaten
