4.Whisk 3 eggs lightly with the mustard in a bowl. don't over whisk.

8.Switch on the grill and put the pan in the oven. when the cheese is melted and the top is golden brown, take it out and let it cool slightly.

9.Take it out and cut in wedges. Serve.

Great stuff, seeker. Brought old memories back.

I used to devour Spanish omelets and love them but then they suddenly disappeared off our home menu. Gonna make my sister do that one for me surely! The cheesy the better...

Cook myself? You kidding me!! :dry:

I have made Spanish omelets in the past.

The only improvement you can make to the omelets from the picture is to fine chop your veggie and maybe make a thin and crispy layer.

Another Omelette... :)

DSC01324.JPGDSC01326.JPG

Souffle Omelette

Ingred:

2 eggs

1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese

3 Tbsp green onions chopped

1 tsp of water

Method:

1.Separate the egg whites. Whisk them till soft peaks form, don't over whisk so that they become too hard.

2.Whisk the yolks with 1 tsp of water, salt and pepper till pale yellow.

3.Add green onions to the yolk.

4.Slowly fold in the yolk in the egg white mixture. don't over beat otherwise the air will be lost from the whipped egg whites.

5.Heat some oil, pour in the egg. Turn the heat to medium. Let one side become golden brown. Flip and heat the other side. Add cheese on the top and flip close by making it into a semi circle. Heat some more till cheese melts. Serve.

Its sometimes nice to put some diced feta in or cream cheese too! if you get the nack to can work it so if you do a folded omlette the melted cream cheese is inside the pocket of the fold and oozes out when you cut into it :wub: ...yep, time for eats.

I like to cook my omelette in a little bit of butter as opposed to oil.

Cook it slowly and don't let the butter turn brown, otherwise your omelette will discolour and have a slightly bitter taste.

I like it with salt and pepper (fillings like cheese, tomatoes and onions are also nice), but it can't be very fine black pepper - it has to be coarsely ground.

3-5 cherry tomatoes, sliced in 1/2

1 potato diced

1/2 bell pepper diced

1 green onion

2 cloves garlic

1/4 cup parsley

1 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1 tablespoon olive oil

How2: in a food processor or mixer add eggs,herbs,and garlic. mix until smooth and the herbs have been combined.

Add the tomatoes to the eggs. set aside.

In a skillet heat up some oil add the potatoes on med-low heat cook until translucent and almost brown once its almost brown lower heat add in green peppers.

add to this the salt,pepper, to the eggs and some of it to the potato and green pepper.

Once the potato/peppers are cooked. increase the heat to med-high add the egg mixture.

if the pan is to hot you may reduce to heat to prevent burning cook for about 10mins. once the eggs looks like its becoming solid lower the temperature to very low.

Add a piece of foil loosely on top to cook the top, or place under broiler to finish.

Lebanese eggs (igi)

5 eggs

1 1/2 cup chopped parsley(about 1 small bunch)

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1 onion

2 cloves garlic

2 tablespoons flour

1/2 green or red bell pepper

pinch of cinnamon

Pinch Cayenne pepper (Optional)

How2:

Prep:

In a food processor add onion,garlic, green pepper,salt, Cayenne,cinnamon and pepper, chopp until the vegetables are diced tiny.

add the parsley, eggs followed by the flour puree until it comes together like a batter.

Cooking:

You can cook this three ways, The oven, a skillet or deep fried.

Its traditionally made deep fried but to save the calories and extra fat i would cook in a non stick skillet or baked.

Deep fry: heat oil to 350df add 1/8th of a cup of batter at a time to the hot oil they will fry up quickly forming mini omelet, flip to brown on both sides.

Skillet: heat up a non stick skillet to med-high add about 1/8th of a cup of egg batter at a time forming mini omelets flip when one side if browned.

Baked: bake in a 350df oven for about 20-25 mins or untill eggs become firm, not runny and golden brown.

i tried something new for breakfast today. I got it from a sunday suppliment magazine with an article on how to kick strat 2012 in healthiest way. They called it 'om cake', but its more omlette than anything else:

Ingredients: 2 eggs, 1 dessert spoon pouring yogurt, 1 tsp turmeric, hand full of blueberries, honey to drizzle

method: mix turmeric into yogurt, add two eggs and lightly beat (not so much that its uniform), pour into hot pan with a little oil (or butter if youre feeling naughty) and sprinkle blueberries on top, let it gently cook untill the top has set and serve with a drizzle of honey or maple syrup.

The turmeric/blueberry combo was surprisingly good! i wouldnt have thought to put them together before, i put slightly less than a tsp in though.

^ lol, ok no probs, it did look nice actually because the omlette goes very yellow and contrasts with the deep blue of the blueberries.

Yeah, most of the time fails for me :( but I love it when my combinations go well :D

Last time I melted orange flavoured chocolate, mint chocolate [the kind of after eights but cheaper version :P ] and cadburys cocoa powder and sugar, added milk, and it made the worst hot chocolate I had ever drank :(

LOL you're creative :lol:

my omlettes are so much simpler than these- an egg, some chopped onion and green peppers, and then i just toss it into the frying pan.

then i roll it up in a paratha :D
