amazing cheese omelette


I'm so lucky.  Mr. A makes me so happy.  He's so kind and loving.  And he makes me this delicious cheesy omelette on some weekends.

I thought I'd share the love by sharing his recipe.

Sorry, am I being too cheesy? ;)

Here's the recipe!

Amazing Cheese Omelette
by Mr. A
makes 1 large omelette

Ingredients:
4 large eggs
1/2 tsp chives, finely chopped
1/4 cup aged white cheddar, cut into small cubes
1 tbsp butter
optional (for non-vegetarians): speck (smoked prosciutto), chopped up into small pieces

Directions:
1) In a small bowl, whisk the eggs and add the chives.  Set aside.
2) Heat pan on medium low heat.  Add butter to the pan.  If you're adding the prosciutto, add it at this stage and cook it until it gets a little crispy, 1-2 minutes.
3) Add the egg mixture to the pan. Let it cook on its own for about 4 minutes, don't touch it, just let it cook.  Then add the cheese.  Cook for another minute. (Tip: Don't add the cheese too early, otherwise it'll just liquify instead of being only slighted melted.)
4) Go around the edge of the omelette and the pan with a fork to loosen the omelette in case it's a little stuck.  You should now be able to slide the omelette off the pan, onto a plate.  As you're sliding the omelette out, flip one half of it on top of the other, as pictured above.

Enjoy!
