Yes, I know it is now Sunday but I did make the Omelets on Saturday but got so lost in some of my painting projects that I didn’t get it typed out until now!
Before I get into the steps/recipe, I have to tell you that I must have forgotten to tuck all of my crazy in this morning and confirmed (again) to my family how few remaining sane marbles I have left! I thought I would have a bit of fun “serving” breakfast to Dillon, my son!
I called him for breakfast and when he got to the kitchen, I was waiting with the huge “Hello Kitty” bib (that I bought as a joke) over my arm like a waiter’s towel and asked if I could show him to his seat. I pulled out his chair for him and then proceeded to place the Bib around his neck, then presented his breakfast to him with a flourish, garnished, lid over it and all lol. He of course looked at me like I was off my rocker, but certainly didn’t take long to clean his plate!
(Don’t you just love his “Hello Kitty” Bib my mother-in-law made for one of her Craft Sales?)
Omelets are very easy to make and there are so many variations you could make a different one every day for a year! While my “boys” love their Sunday peameal and eggs, they do also enjoy the omelets I make for them!
Obviously you start with eggs! Here are all the ingredients I used this morning.
Today I decided on green onion, cheese and Pastrami… yes, pastrami lol. I didn’t have ham and it seemed like something they would like! Considering how quickly they cleaned their plates, I would say it was a hit!
To start you are going to cut up the pastrami (meat of choice) and onions, and throw them in the frying pan with a tablespoon or two of butter or margarine and the ground pepper. Cook over medium high until nicely browned. The smell is enough to make you drool… frying onions!
While the onions and pastrami were cooking I whisked 3 eggs until fluffy and then added the 2 tablespoons of milk. Mix well.
Pour the eggs mixture over the pastrami and onions in the frying pan.
Let this cook, still over medium high until the eggs are fully cooked, are browning around the edges and don’t look runny on top, then sprinkle with the cheese!
Once the cheese is melted, fold in half in the pan (mine very rarely folds nicely) and serve with toast and fresh tomatoes!
A nice hot, healthy Saturday morning breakfast (with minimal dishes)!
