Meatless Monday: Open Face Mexican Omelet {Gluten Free, Dairy Free}

Happy Meatless Monday! My post is going to be short and sweet today as I had a very busy weekend of celebrating.  First, on Saturday, I ran the CNY Springtime 10k followed by a surprise birthday party for my brother in law then on Sunday, my sister’s bridal shower!

Usually if I know I am going to be busy I plan my posts in advance but life has really just been super crazy and by the time I was able to sit down on Sunday night my kiddos were requesting cuddles and of course, I couldn’t deny them.  

The only thing I had time for was to put together this quick Open Face Mexican Omelet that is super easy to make and especially perfect for brinner (breakfast for dinner).

I love breakfast for dinner and omelets are one of my favorite! I haven't thought of adding corn before- now I know what to do with some of the leftover corn we grilled last night :)

Yum! Usually I just try to stuff a ton of different fixings inside my omelette, but this certainly looks a lot neater!

HOW do your omelettes come out so perfect??!! Mind usually end up semi-scrambled from messing up the flip. Cuddles will always trump blogging :) hope you're having an awesome Monday so far!
