So... I'm looking for some tasty omelette recipes.... what's your favorite?
Here's my latest fav based on one I found on FoodNetwork (lots of tasty recipes there). Here's the original recipe (Asparagus, Gruyere, and Tarragon Souffleed Omelet), and if you have the time to make it -- its DEVINE, but if you're really hungry and just want it quick, here's my simplified version:
* 6 stalks of asparagus * red onion, diced (however much you want) * 3 egg whites + 1 egg (less cholestorol that way ) * gruyere cheese, a handful, shredded * chopped fresh tarragon (can substitute with dried fennell) * salt and pepper
Trim the asparagus, then break into 2-3 inch pieces. Quickly boil it for 3-5 minutes, til just cooked, drain and set aside.
Mix up the eggs. Put the skillet on a medium-high heat. Put a bit of oil in your omelette skillet. Pour in the eggs and add the onion, asparagus, salt and pepper. Cook the omelette, add the cheese and tarragon or fennell. Fold it. Finish cooking it. Serve it. Eat it.
If you want to make the omelette even better -- add some sauteed shrimp -- its REALLY good, especially in the original recipe.
Not really an omlet, but a compatible recipe has onion, tomato and a green chilli.
Cook the onion and cut up chilli in oil until the onion begins to go clear. Dice the tomato and toss it in. Older tomatoes are better, since the intent it to get the tomatoes to fall apart. Cook and stir occasionally until it starts to dry out. Beat the eggs. At this stage I add the eggs and stir constantly to make a spiced scrambled eggs, but no reason it can't be omlet-ified.
This is one of my favourites because it's an easy meal, but it also gives you the taste of the chilli with just a hint of heat, it won't blow your head off.
