How Do You Like Your Omelet!?

by on ‎01-24-2014 02:53 PM

I have no delusions of grandeur when it comes to winning the prize of the next Top Chef (I’m actually content that I didn’t burn the house down the last time I grilled steaks on the deck).  And while my wife Amy has become a master at whipping up delectable dishes for our family, every once in a while… I’m unleashed into the kitchen. With pans clanging and knives flailing, look out… it’s time for Dad… to make omelets!


The importance of a great breakfast cannot be overstated. With a combination of healthy carbs and protein, it’s a great way to get your engine revved up, and give you energy for an active day. And oh, by the way, a good omelet also tastes great!


Here are a few tricks I use to give my omelets flavor, while also keeping them a little bit on the healthy side:



  1. Use turkey bacon instead of traditional bacon

  2. Add some red pepper to give it a little tang without being overly spicy
     

  3. This might come as a surprise, but I also add in a dash of orange juice before I pour it into the hot pan. Yes, orange juice! 



  4. Instead of doing an ‘egg white only’ omelet, I usually add a yolk (or two).
     

  5. Add in some low fat cheese and a little spinach for some extra flavor


Finally-- To flip, or not to flip: that is the question. Do you like your omelet soft inside? Though I like it that way, I can’t resist taking the risk of ‘flipping’ the eggs before adding my ingredients. It’s fun (unless, of course, you miss the pan. Oops).



Hope you enjoy our Cookin’ on the Q Day! Breakfast is served! (PS: I know my pic is blurry but have you ever tried flipping an omelet while snapping a picture--- It’s not easy!)
