Chili Beef Brisket Omelet with Smoked Gouda, Crispy Brussels Sprouts, Salsa Verde
"The first item I ever cooked was scrambled eggs. The second concept of cooking I learned was BBQ. So when I created this dish I brought both of my favorite items together! Making chili with left over Brisket is a great way to utilize smokey goodness. Layering that over a perfectly cooked omelet with Smoked Gouda makes for a delicious Hearty meal. Adding a little zing with a fresh Salsa Verde is an awesome condiment addition," says Kenny Gilbert, Chef/Owner of Gilbert's Underground Kitchen in Fernandina Beach, FL.

Building the Omelet

Lift up the omelet to make sure that the runny part of the egg slides underneath omelet to continue the process. Once your Omelet is fully cooked yet still soft, fold over and place on to a plate. Pour over the Chili Beef brisket. Garnish with the fried Brussels sprouts and Salsa Verde on the side.
