Weirdest Omelet: Cinnamon Apple Cheddar

Yet again, you're going to think I'm crazy. Or pregnant. But I promise you, I'm neither. This is the weirdest omelet and one of the weirdest foods I make, but it's so tasty. Even better, it's filling and comes in at just over 400 calories.

Dice two small apples. Put them in a skillet with half a tablespoon of butter and about a teaspoon of cinnamon.

While those are cooking, take out two eggs.

Crack them into a cup and mix them up.

Stir the apples occasionally. When they're softened and starting to brown, put them on a plate.

Throw another half tablespoon of butter into the pan.

Let it melt.

Shred an ounce of sharp cheddar cheese.

Pour the eggs into the pan and cook until set enough to flip.

Then flip it.

Spread the cheese on top of the egg.

Cover with the apples.

Fold in half.

Transfer to a plate.

I know you're skeptical, but just try it. I fed this to a friend a couple years ago, and she reluctantly fell in love. I stole the idea from another website, but now I can't remember where. Apparently some people also put cheese on apple pie, but that's a bit much even for me.

What are your favorite omelet toppings? Cream cheese, anyone?
