  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon milk or water
  • ¼ cup diced onion
  • About 2 oz. ground chorizo sausage {I use ground vegan sausage links}
  • 2 tablespoons {or more} shredded cheese such as Mexican cheese blend
  • Cilantro for garnish


  • Heat a teaspoon of olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion to skillet and saute for about 2-3 minutes or until it begins to soften.
  • Add ground chorizo and cook until no longer raw*, then carefully drain any fat and set aside.
  • Meanwhile, crack eggs directly into the OXO Microwave Omelet Maker. Add milk or water and lightly beat eggs with a fork.
  • Microwave for 2 to 2 ½ minutes until egg is fluffy and cooked through.
  • Remove from microwave and top with cheese and chorizo filling.
  • Fold omelet maker over and gently slide omelet out onto plate.
  • Top with a drizzle of yogurt or sour cream and a sprinkle of cilantro if desired.


The vegan sausage I use comes in links. I grind the links in the food processor and then cook until slightly browned and heated through.
