I just love a wide variety of omelettes as quick solutions for lunch and dinner, and so easy to modify for greater variety!
Besides being delicious and highly versatile, eggs are enormously nutrient dense with a load of bioavailable protein and great fats. They also contain a variety of micronutrients and are generally considered one of the most complete food items to be found. For that reason they have a well deserved reputation of keeping us satiated for quite some time.
One of the easiest way to create variety is to cook omelettes with different fillings and here´s a quick and easy basic recipe for omelettes:
What You need:
- Eggs (depending on stature and hunger level, 2-4 eggs/person is normally sufficient)
- Heavy Cream (makes for a smoother texture and ups the fat content)
- Butter (in my opinion, frying anything “eggy” in anything else but butter is heresy)
- Mix the eggs in a bowl and add heavy cream to taste
- Melt butter in a skillet on medium heat and wait until it stopps bubbling
- Poor the egg mixture into the buttered skillet and use a spatula to fold the omelette from the edges, leaving space for the mixture to flow out and fill the space. This speeds up the cooking process and created the beautiful shape of the finished dish.
- Cook until the eggs are set, fold the omelett over in the middle and serve immediately
Use this as is, with just some salt and peppar, or add different cheeses, cold cuts, salamis, onions, leafy greens or other veggies. More recipes coming soon, yet this is the basic!
Give it a try and let me know what You think, ok?
