How to make the perfect omelette

I love omelettes!  They are delicious, healthy and the perfect way to use up random veggies, meat and cheese that you might have lingering in your fridge.  You can eat them for breakfast, lunch or dinner.  I learned how to make a perfect one from Jamie Oliver, although I must confess that mine are not as beautiful as his.


Organic Omelette

Omelettes are one of my new favorite things to make and they’re actually very easy.  Here’s how I did it:

From the organic organic omelettebox: eggs, green onion, tomato

From the regular store: cheddar cheese, salt, oil

From Iherb: fresh ground pepper

Beat up a couple eggs with salt and pepper.  Pour into a well-oiled or buttered pan.  Spread around so it covers the pan evenly.  Gently pull back the cooked egg to allow the liquid to go underneath.  It’s done when it’s almost cooked, but not quite.  You want it a bit liquidy because it’s way more delicious that way.

Then add your toppings into the middle.  Pre-cook anything like peppers, white onions, bacon, etc.  Fold over carefully.  Then, I added some fresh tomatoes to this one.  Enjoy!


Eggs and Spinach on Toast

Eggs and Spinach on ToastThis is one of my favorite weekend breakfast meals.  It’s delicious, pretty easy to make and quite healthy.  It’s ideal for after you go to Costco and you have good cheese and bread.  Here are the ingredients:

From IherbFresh Ground Black Pepper, Basil

From the Organic Box (Wwoof CSA), Costco, or the regular supermarket: Cheddar cheese, good bread (add on with the organic box), eggs, garlic, onion, spinach, salt, oil

It will take about 15 minutes to make.  Toast the bread and put the piece of cheese on top.  Fry up the onion and garlic in a bit of oil.  Add the spinach, salt, pepper and basil and cook until the spinach is just wilted.  Put on top of the toast and then fry up an egg or two (I like mine easy-over).  Enjoy with your hands if brave, or a fork and knife it not!
