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.
2 medium eggs
1 tablespoon of grated Parmesan Cheese
3 tablespoons of grated Cheddar cheese
¼ red onion, chopped
Worcestershire Sauce - lots!
1 tablespoon olive oil
Sea salt and ground pepper to taste
Grate the cheese.
Finely Chop the onion
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 nine 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 nine minutes then take a look at the video below for proof!
The recipe below specifies exact amounts but feel free to vary those according to your taste.
Whisk eggs, both cheeses, onion, salt and pepper in a jug or mixing bowl.STEP 2
Warm the oil in frying pan (skillet).STEP 3
Pour mixture into hot pan and spread mixture evenly with spatula. Jiggle the pan a little so the cheese doesn't stick.STEP 4
After a couple of minutes slide omelette forward so you can get spatula underneath and flip over (rather like a pancake).STEP 5
Cook the underside for 1 or 2 minutes.STEP 6
Serve on a plate, flat, not folded or rolled. Douse in as much Worcester sauce as you dare and 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 rather 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.
