I consumed more breakfast burritos and fish tacos in my first month in California than in the remaining three years combined that I would live there. It just seemed impossible not to wake up every morning, pick up breakfast to-go and find a spot on the beach to enjoy it. Once I accepted that these little shacks weren’t going anywhere, I started exploring other spots in town and came to love one bistro in particular, Cafe Mimosa, which served the most delicious leek and goat cheese omelet.
Now that I am 3,000 miles away from this sunny spot, every so often I have to get my fix at home — sweet leeks and tangy goat cheese continues to be one of my favorite omelet combinations. I am so excited to share a recipe for this omelet over on A Cup of Jo as part of a really fun recipe series.
