Omelettes make a great and very nourishing breakfast or brunch, and they’re not at all difficult to prepare; and besides, there are endless variations that can make every single omelette unique! To the basic batter, you can add all sorts of ingredients, both vegetarian and non; you can adapt each recipe to the personal tastes of the one who’s going to eat it, so there’ll never be any quarrels about different preferences.
The basic recipe for a simple omelette needs per person:
2 eggs, 50ml milk, 1tsp flour, salt, oil
Separate the eggs, whisk the egg whites with a hand mixer or a whisk until stiff. Mix the egg yolks with the milk and flour in another bowl with a whisk, then slowly stir in the egg whites with a spoon; add salt to taste. Your omelette is ready to go into the frying pan!
Pour the batter into a big hot pan with oil, move the pan around a bit so that the omelette fills it out, and fry on a medium flame from one side for 3-4 minutes until it’s golden brown underneath and solid enough to be turned around, then fry from the other side for another 3-4 minutes.
BUT you can add lots of other ingredients to the basic batter to make your omelette tastier and more filling. How about one or more of those:
Grated cheese, ham, bacon, mushrooms, tomatoes, bell peppers, courgettes, baby spinach, broccoli, tinned fruit…
Just like the toppings for a pizza, you can choose, match and mix to your own taste; a great start into the day, both creative and yummy, and quite easy to do, too! So, spoil yourself and your loved one(s) with a special Sunday morning treat today, dear friends – it’ll brighten up your whole day…
