Late Night Omelette


Most people eat omelette for breakfast, I eat it before bedtime. The reason is simple. It has virtually no carbs, it's high in protein and it tastes great. Try eating omelette for supper, you won't regret anything.

I add loads of parmesan so the omelette browns faster, tasting better. I add ham, for more protein, for a nicer bite. I used butter instead of oil, so I guess I just made my omelette French. I garnished with parsley at the end, so it looks better.

There are many ways you can play with your omelette, add mushrooms, garlic, shrimps, etc. Go wild.

makes 1 omelette

2 eggs
1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan
a slice of ham, sliced into strips
1 tbsp milk
sea salt and black pepper
a knob of butter
chopped parsley, for ganish

- In a bowl, beat eggs with milk, grated cheese, salt and pepper. Beat eggs until yolks and whites incorporate, do not over beat. Season well.

- Get a non stick frying pan to medium-low heat, melt butter.

- Before butter turns brown, add egg mixture and top with ham.

- Shake pan in a left to right, right to left, front to back and back to front(almost circular) motion. What you want to do is to prevent the sides from sticking. Do this for 30 secs.

- When eggs are half done in the centre, use a spatula and carefully fold the egg in thirds until you get a 3 layered roll. Let it cook for a few more seconds and serve immediately. What you'll want is a creamy soft inside. Sprinkle chopped parsley and serve if additional butter if desired.

Bon Appetit.
