Recipe Rating

4.7 stars from 7 ratings of overall recipe

This is a quick little omelet or scramble. It's fairly gourmet and very hearty. The Prep is fairly easy and the cooking difficulty depends on your skill with a pan. I struggle with omelets, so I tend to treat this dish as a hybrid.

It is very full of flavor, but not as rich as you might think, even with the artichokes. I recommend no oil or butter, but if you don't have access to non stick, use unsalted butter or olive oil.

Cooking it

  1. heat non stick pan on medium high heat
  2. prepare banana peppers, jalapeno, artichoke hearts, tomato, onion and ham.
  3. Toss these in pan, spreading them out as evenly as possible. Add pepper to taste (I usually do three turns on the pepper shaker). Toss in stem of cilantro. Cook 3-5 minutes, or until onions are slightly soft.
  4. While items are cooking, in separate bowl, combine three eggs and half of the cheese. Add a turn and a half of rooster sauce. Whisk until completely mixed.
  5. Remove cilantro from pan and pour egg mix over veggies.
  6. Cook 2-4 minutes, add rest of cheese and then flip or chop eggs.
  7. cook 1-2 minutes.
  8. Serve. With toast and/or potatoes to make the meal even hardier.

      Midnight Lights, it's not that spicy, really. But, try it without the jalapeno and rooster sauce... still good :-)

      I've never had artichoke in anything. And being I'm not fond of hot foods I think I'll pass. But it does look like it would be good for those that do like hot stuff. Nice article.

      Victoria, any hot sauce would work, including tobasco, but rooster sauce gives it the right oomph. I would also stay away from Chipotle

      Thanks, Justin! Would any hot sauce work or is it better with this sauce?

      Yummy, you had me at artichoke! Do you use fresh? Ever use the marinated artichokes in this recipe? Also, what is rooster sauce? I'm definitely marking this recipe. Looks interesting and tasty!

      Hey dude! I am so happy you shared this. I think I'm gon'na figure out how to use this for a week planner, for the purchasing dept :) Once I discover a tasty and delectable (had to look that up)menu item I tend to stick to it for months. I am get'n tired of frozen burritos too :) This may be a tad long, ooops, (keep getting red lines no matter how I spelled that), What is really cool for me is I can use the top rack feature of the dish washer too - you didn't know how cool this turned out, eh? Well, going to print, place on the priority to do counter, and go shopping after therapy . . .thanks!

      Suzie, it's actually kind of funny. They didn't even try to change it. They took everything on the page and copied it. they even left my name in the title.

      Aurelio, I'm not a fan of artichokes by themselves, but I love them in foods... especially dips.

      Stessily, it is. I usually use a lot of spices and sauces... but this recipe doesn't need it

      I'm not normally an artichoke eater but you make it sound delicious, especially with one of my favorite veggies, the onion. Voting this Up and Useful.

      I have an artichoke bush in my yard that grows more artichokes than I know what to do with each year, so I'm always on the look out for new ways to cook them. Thanks for this recipe idea! :)
