Omelette with Fried Chanterelles, Cheese, and Cherry Tomatoes

chanterelle omelette

In Sweden, my family and I had foraged and eaten so many chanterelles, that I needed a new way of eating them. That is why I decided to try to make a breakfast dish that included chanterelles. I discovered that chanterelles and eggs are an excellent combination!

This chanterelle omelette is super tasty, juicy and it’s a nice filling breakfast or lunch. An omelette can easily be shared between 2 people and can for example be served with some toasted bread.
