    Herb Omelette - Simple and Delicious

    Post by Jan1 on Mon May 04 2015, 09:56


    Herb omelette, which is simply delicious. Such a quick and easy meal with several variations. Ready in 7 minutes. Cooking time 5 minutes. Prep time 2 minutes.

    Ingredients:

    Serves 1
    3 medium free-range eggs
    1 tsp unsalted butter
    1 tbsp chopped fresh herbs (such as fresh chives, dill and flat-leaf parsley)

    Method:
    1. Crack the eggs into a mixing bowl and whisk together until the yolks and whites are well combined.
    2. Set a 20cm non-stick frying pan over a high heat. When the pan is hot, add the butter. As it begins to sizzle, pour in the egg mixture. Using a spatula, stir slowly for 15-20 seconds, as if you were making scrambled eggs.
    3. Reduce the heat to medium-low and place your herbs or choice of fillings around the centre of the omelette.
    4. As soon as the egg begins to set on the bottom (about 1 minute), fold a third of the omelette towards the middle of the pan, enclosing the filling.
    5. To remove the omelette from the pan and create the classic two-fold rolled effect, tilt the pan, slide the omelette out and use your spatula to create the final fold.

    Omelettes are such a great way to start the day, or enjoy for lunch or even a light supper.

    Looks great Jan, thanks

    Since I cook my own breakfast, I shall be making two simple male style modifications.

    1/ no two fold rolled effect

    2/ Eat straight from the pan. Saves me washing a plate.

    It's not just males who are lazy in the cooking department, Pasha. I always eat scrambled eggs or omelettes from the pan. We're not lazy, we're efficiency experts thumb-up

    If anyone in your family is feeling slightly under the weather, I can recommend something like this for breakfast ...

    Of course if you are 100% fit, I would also recommend it ...

    All the best Jan
