Don’t worry, you’ll get used to the idea by the end of this post.
See, I’m a strong believer in eating protein with every meal and, well, eggs definitely go well with the breakfast crowd. So I eat eggs for breakfast about, oh 98.9% of the time. That means I’m always looking for new, quick, easy, one person breakfasts and tend to get really creative with my eggs. Most of the time I like what happens. Though I must admit I’ve made a couple doozies…ahem! Anyhow…
Eggs are just incredible! I absolutely love them. They are so versatile and soooo packed with yummy nutrients, including omega 3s – how can anyone not love them?
Anyways, I found a variation of this recipe when I was researching online nutrition courses. To be honest, I was skeptical, too. I mean, it’s just a bit weird or something. But I gave it a whirl and was impressed by all the different ways one could prepare this omelet. I still haven’t tried all my ideas out yet – not enough breakfasts in the day – but here are a couple to get your brain waves spinning.
The omelet base for a 10 inch skillet –
- 2 farm fresh eggs
- 1 T. milk, coconut milk, or cream
- dash of cinnamon or a couple drops of vanilla
- 1/2 t. honey, maple syrup or other sweetener (optional)
Whisk together in a small bowl until well combined. Pour on to a well buttered and heated skillet and cook on low until almost set. If you’re adventurous you can flip the omelet over to complete cooking. If not, place a lid on the skillet after pouring in the eggs and cook through out on very low heat. Invert or slide omelet on to a plate.
The fruit –
Now here’s where the fun starts. Strawberries are a great option. So are peaches, mango or blackberries. Just use what you have or what suits your fancy at the moment.
The dairy –
Cottage cheese, ricotta, or yogurt. Again, it all depends on what you like. This morning, I topped mine with cottage cheese, strawberries and vanilla yogurt.
Try chopped pecans with peaches, sliced almonds with strawberries or toasted coconut with mango. You can even drizzle on some maple syrup if you like things sweeter. It’s better than french toast. Seriously.
So, I have a few questions for you…
Is this recipe just too uncomfortable for your taste buds, or would you like to see more “wacky” and unusual recipes?
(EDIT: I edited out the questions that don’t apply anymore since I changed over to WordPress! Blogging life is so much easier! :D )
