Pig and Veggie Omelette

pig omelette

Anyone who knows me, knows that I love savory things. I prefer eggs and bacon to pancakes any day. I love eggs! They can be added to most any meal for that extra kick of protein. Their versatility is vast. My favorite thing to do with eggs? Why make an omelette of course! Here are some basic steps to making an omelette and, if all else fails, it can become a scramble.

Ingredients:

  • 1 tbs butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbs milk
  • salt and pepper

To do:

  1. Heat a pan with the butter on medium heat.
  2. Whisk together the eggs, milk, s&p. Whisk it well! You want this to have some fluff.
  3. Gently pour the eggs into the pan and spread out.
  4. Let it “set”. You want to allow the eggs to cook, but not turn brown. Bubbles will form under the surface. This will tell you that you can:
  5. Gently nudge the eggs with a spatula. Allow the top runny egg get underneath to cook. This will kind of look like a giant egg pancake.
  6. Next, flip it! I use a wide spatula for this because I still suck at this part.
  7. Add your innards to one side! And carefully fold the egg pancake in half. Let it cook for another minute or so. A tip: I sometimes cover the pan but allow a vent for the steam to escape through.
  8. Eat it!

For this to be the pig omelette:

  • bacon, cut and cooked about 2 strips to 2 eggs.
  • Diced bell pepper and onion to equal a 1/4 cup sauteed
  • chopped deli ham, I’m resourceful and if we have that, I add it!
  • I add 1 tsp hot sauce to the eggs while whisking for a kick.
  • shredded cheese! As much as your heart wants. I had cheddar and topped with smoked Gouda.

Don’t stop yourself there, what other things are good to put in your omelette? Crispy hashbrowns? Maybe try a caprese omelette with roasted cherry tomatoes, mozz, and basil?

 

Take a bite!

  1. Since I cook for a living and actually design out menus, my favorite is either the Greek omelet or the club omelet!

    Greek:
    Sliced peppercinis
    Sliced kalamata olives
    Feta cheese
    Tomato
    Red onions

    Club:
    Bacon
    Cheese
    Tomato
    Avocado
    Sour cream and salsa on the side

    Soooooooo many things you can do with an omelet
