This recipe was submitted by one of our readers and we are grateful for
it. Normally we don't cook submitted recipes but this one
sounded extra good and ideal for breakfast.
This breakfast omelette recipe, submitted by one of our readers is slightly different
from many other omelettes. First it is not folded but left open. The
reason for this is so that lots of Lea and Perrins can be sprinkled
on it. We wondered whether Lea and Perrins Worcestershire Sauce
would taste good with an omelette but it goes surprisingly well.
Two types of cheese are added, cheddar and Parmesan which gives it a
unique taste. The cheeses are added to the egg mixture rather than
on top of the omelette and we were concerned that a cheese and egg
mixture would stick to the pan but it didn't stick at all.
Overall we were very impressed with the taste and texture and would
recommend this breakfast omelette for any time of day. But we decided to take
it one stage further and make a video of the of the whole process
and time it. After all, a breakfast omelette needs to be quick at
such a valuable part of the day.
When we cooked it for the first and only time it took us under eight
minutes and that includes preparation. Not bad and eminently
suitable for a rushed breakfast. So take a look at the recipe below
with the pictures and if you don't believe it can be prepared and
cooked in under eight minutes then take a look at the accompanying
video for proof!
The recipe specifies exact amounts but feel free to vary those
according to your taste.
Preparation Before Cooking
Grate the cheese.
Finely Chop the onion
A spatula or similar to flip the omelette over.
Step 1: Whisk eggs, cheeses,
onion, salt and pepper in a jug or mixing bowl.
Step 2: Warm oil in frying pan or skillet.
Step 3: Pour mixture into hot pan.
Step 4: Spread mixture evenly with spatula .
Step 5: Jiggle the pan a little so the cheese doesn't stick.
Step 6: After a couple of minutes slide omelette forward so you
can get spatula underneath and flip over (sort of like a pancake).
Step 7: Cook underside for 1 or 2 minutes.
Step 8: Serve on a plate, flat, not folded or rolled.
Step 9: Douse in as much Worcester sauce as you can take.
Step 10: Enjoy.
Hints and Tips: Some people like to fold their breakfast omelette but I
prefer it flat. It lasts longer and you can get more sauce onto it. I
know the measurements here are pretty vague but it is all to suit
individual tastes. I have added garlic in the past. Some people like to
use milk or butter but it makes it too runny.
