I’m taking the bull by the horns so to speak. I haven’t been getting along with breakfast for some time and I aim to rework that this year.
Join me in my quest to find 52 Fresh Breakfast Ideas that don’t leave me feeling heavy or my family still hungry. We may revisit dishes you already know or find some new favorites but my goal for 2014 is a new appreciation for breakfast.
Well we’re on Week 8
This week my husband came up with the breakfast idea. He’s taken a few days off work and is really spoiling us with a few Daddy Dishes.
After watching episode whatnot of Gordon Ramsey’s 100 Meals You’ll Ever Need (greatly paraphrasing here) hubby got inspired to make an omelet. Now as with scrambled eggs omelets mean different things to different people.
If you watch Michel Roux Jr. interview potential protege’s in England you see that for him an omelet is a simple affair of a thin layer of seasoned eggs possibly with a pinch of chives and maybe some cheese.
Now these two chefs would probably scoff at what we consider a good omelet but remember we like our eggs cooked!
I and even my husband will admit his omelet is a teeny bit overcooked butt it was still delicious. A little browned but still yummy.
For my husband omelets are something completely different. Full of meat, veggies and cheese his omelets are big meals by themselves.
He made one for my daughter and one for himself. I was full just watching him make them.
Here’s how he his omelet.
1.) Mix up eggs well (2 -3 per omelet)
2.) Chop whatever meat and veggies you want in your omelet.
3.) Sautee your veggies and meat in a little olive oil.
4.) Meanwhile heat skillet for omelet and add a little oil or butter to the pan and swish around until the pan is covered.
5.) Cook egg until begins to set and then pour veggie/meat mix on one half.
6.) Cook a little longer to your liking and then fold over and pour out on a plate.
Do you like omelets? If so what do you like on them?
