Bergsteiger Omelet Recipe - A Taste of the Alps Series

We are continuing our Taste of the Alps Series, where we bring you recipes straight from mountain huts in the Alps. This week we are introducing the Bergsteiger Omelet. Bergsteiger means "mountain climber," so if you like to climb mountains, you'll definitely want to try this recipe.

I would like to thank Rifugio Sennes, or Sennes Hut, for sharing this delicious recipe with us. The Sennes Hut lies on the famed Alta Via 1 trek, which is Italy's highlight long distance trek.

As we roll out this series, we are in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic. Many of our customers aren't sure whether or not they are going to make it to the Alps and quite a few people who had travel plans this summer may not be able to follow through with them. This series is our effort to connect you to the mountain huts in the Alps by giving you the chance to prepare their delicious dishes at home. It's worth mentioning that I'm often quite a disaster in the kitchen, so anything can really happen during this series.
