Easy Omelette

We’ve all been there.  We are in a rush, or the fridge is almost empty.  We need something quick to eat.  I instantly think of omelettes.  The omelette is also budget friendly.
The Food Timeline website says the word omelette is of French origin (duh Julia Child made them) and came into use during the mid-16th century.  Somewhat similar egg dishes were known to and ancient medieval cooks.  The French version was finished off with grated cheese on top, and appears to have been quite close to the modern concept of an omelette.
I want to know what is your favourite way to cook an omelette?  Do you keep the vegetables and egg separate?  What is your favourite vegetable mixture? 


Easy Omelette Recipe:

·         2 stems of asparagus cut into smaller pieces
·         1/3 cup of assorted chopped peppers
·         1/8 cup of chopped onion
·         1 slice of ham cut into small pieces

·         5 thin slices of tomato

·         1 egg
·         Dash of salt & pepper
·         1/8 cup of cheddar cheese


1.    In a bowl whisk the egg, salt & pepper.  Set aside.
2.    Preheat a small frying pan to medium heat.
3.    Drizzle olive oil on your pan or another cooking fat.
4.    Sauté the asparagus until slightly soft and season with salt & pepper.
5.    Add peppers and onions to the pan.
6.    Add the tomato and ham to the pan.
7.    Reduce heat to low.  *I find the omelette cooks better on low heat.
8.    Add the whisked egg to the pan. 
9.    When the bottom is firm but the top is still slightly runny, sprinkle cheddar cheese over the eggs.
10. If you like your eggs slightly runny like me the omelette is finished.  If you prefer your eggs a little more firm leave it a few more minutes.
Yummy cheese is oozing out

Bon appetit!   (enjoy your meal)

    You're right, omelets are great when you're in a rush. When I really, really don't have time, I just throw a cracked egg in a glass dish and microwave for 3 minutes. Buuut it's always better when there are a couple of veggies in there. Love your version, the asparagus makes it for me!
