So his first go at cooking breakfast was just frying an egg, then he ventured into scrambled eggs and next weekend, he has now seen how I do an omelette, so he has to try it. It is quite nice watching him cook, i think everyone needs to know how to cook.
This omelette is super simple, it only takes minutes to make. I made this one with mushrooms, as the night before we made pizza and I had leftover mushrooms, but you can fill it with bacon instead if you like, there is an endless choice of what you can fill it with.
So here is an easy breakfast, lunch or dinner idea, something that can be made in minutes and tastes great. Give it a try.
3 large button mushrooms, sliced
2 shallots, sliced
1/4 cup shredded tasty cheese
Salt and Pepper, to taste
Before you start, turn on the grill in your oven, so that it heats up.
Place the eggs in a bowl, add 1 tablespoon water, season with a little pepper and beat lightly with a fork until just combined.
To a medium sized frying pan, add a teaspoon of oil. Place over a medium heat, add the mushrooms and shallots. Season with a little salt and saute, stirring, for about one minute or until the mushrooms soften. Place mushroom mixture into a bowl until needed.
Allow the pan to cool off the heat for about 30 seconds, then pour in another teaspoon of oil. Place over a low-medium heat, add the eggs and allow them to cook gently, season with a little salt. As the egg looks nearly set, it still needs to be a little soft/wet on top, place the mushroom mixture on one half of the eggs. Sprinkle with the shredded cheese.
Place under a preheated grill for about 30 seconds, just to start the cheese melting and to allow the egg to set on top a little more. Remove from the oven.
Carefully flip the egg half with out the mushrooms, over the mushroom covered half.
Slide the finished omelette onto a serving plate and sprinkle with a few extra slices of shallots. Serve immediately.
