I’m currently sitting in my pjs watching Homes Under The Hammer and eating Omelette’s #livingthedream and yes, you heard, that was omelette’s plural. I made such a good omelette this morning that I decided to make another one. What? It’s my week off before I start my new and exciting life over at Sainsbury’s Magazine so I thought, yeah, if I want two omelettes, I should have two omelettes… Feel a bit sick now though but that’s due to the packet of Percy Pigs I ate for dessert.
Jamie usually makes the omelette’s in our house but as he’s at work (selfish) I had to make my own omelette which was very daunting. I’m not good at making omelette’s, they usually turn into burnt scrambled eggs. But I’ve been observing Jamie over the past year and have discovered his secret. Instead of incorporating the cheese into the egg mixture, he sprinkles it on top of the omelette like a pizza. Then he folds it carefully over once and continues to cook it until the cheese melts in the centre (drool). Don’t think I’ve said the word omelette enough in this post, omelette, omelette, omelette…….. Omelette!
Kale & Cheese Omelette
Serves 1 / Takes 10-15 minutes
1 Garlic clove crushed
Small handful of kale
Sprinkling of finely sliced red onion
Quarter of deseeded red chilli finely chopped
30g grated cheese of your choice (I like to use Emmental)
Salt and pepper
1. Crack two eggs into a jug and give them a quick beat with a fork. Season with salt and pepper. Add the chopped onion, chilli, garlic and kale and give it another quick beat to combine. Grate the cheese and put to one side.
2. Spray a large frying pan liberally with spray oil and put on a medium to high heat. Once hot, pour your omelette mix into the middle of the pan and spread out evenly. Top with a layer of grated cheese and wait a couple of minutes for the omelette to set. Once set, it should start to come away from the edges of the pan.
3. Using a spatular, carefully fold the omelette in half and continue to cook until the cheese has melted in the middle. After a minute flip over the omelette and cook for another minute on the other side. Serve immediately and enjoy.
If you’ve had a go at making my omelette or any of my recipes, I’d love to hear about it @corrieheale firstname.lastname@example.org
