Recipe: Tomato & Onion Omlette
A tasty, easy to prepare, vegetarian snack
Okay, so you might be asking yourself - does this really require a recipe? Surely you just smash some eggs, bung em' in a pan, stir, cook then serve?
Well, at a level, you would be correct. However I recently enjoyed a modicum of popularity with my rather clumsily put together vegetarian chilli recipe:-
So easy you could cook it with your hands tied behind your back.
Now, when I saw Hayley Stanway's post about the McDonald's Hash Brown recipe I noticed something. I noticed a nice little box with ingredients and steps listed in it.
You'll probably have everything you need in your kitchen already
Clearly, there's a better way to 'do' recipes than hacking out a monster article full of sub-headings and pictures and what not. This got me thinking, what could I smash out, just to try out the 'recipe' tools?
Et voila, we're making omelette! I know it's simple. But, I'm sure there must be someone out there who either can't boil an egg or who makes stuff, but would like to try and improve their omelette.
The present Mrs. Stanley particularly enjoys this meal. Back in the olden days; before the Covid19 crisis (two months ago), I'd often make this for her on a monday night, after getting the kids to bed; so it'd be ready when she got back from Manchester University. She's studying for a Master's in Educational Psychology at the moment and when she could go into University, she rarely had time for a proper meal if she was going to catch the train on time.
Before we start, there are two ways I make omelette. A grilled omelette and a folded omelette. This is a folded one. The nice thing about a folded omelette, is you don't quite cook the centre fully. You keep it just a little bit moist. That gives it a nice texture and it enhances the flavour.
Right, let's get down to business! Here's the recipe!
Right! That's it! If there's anybody out there who DOESN'T make omelette, please give this a go and let me know what you think!
