I'm so impressionable. Is that a word? Last night I was watching one of Bobby Flay's Throwdown shows: he was making omelets. That's why when I woke up today after a night of dancing, I decided to make an omelet. This would have to be a pretty filling omelet since it was already 11 am: brunch anyone?
Why is this an "Everything but a kitchen sink omelet?" Because you can put anything into it! I used the following ingredients:
black cured olives
eggs (of course!)
All you have to do is cube your vegetables. Check out the mini dice I was able to get: this would allow the vegetables to cook faster.
Here's what you do:
1) Heat a bit of oil in a pan. Add potatoes and cook for about 5 minutes. Then add peppers and shallots, season with salt and pepper and cook for about 5 more minutes, or until all the vegetables are cooked through and browned. Add olives and set aside.
2. Whisk your eggs with a bit of salt. In another pan, heat a bit of oil. Add the eggs and swirl them a bit. Make sure your heat is pretty low: you don't want much color.
3. Once the bottom of the omelet is set, flip it! Ok, I did not technically flip my omelet. I slid it on a flat plate and then carefully flipped it back into the pan.
4. Cook the omelet for a few minutes, then add your filling to one half of the omelet. Top with cheese and basil and fold.
5. You are ready to eat! I could have left the omelet on the stove for a bit longer to make sure the cheese melted more, but it was still good.
Breakfast is ready!
