Happy New Year! For breakfast yesterday morning (a rather late one since we did not get home from dinner out until 2 a.m), I decided to make my French Omelette. This omelette is inspired by my favorite brunch item at Gaslight, a French bistro in Boston’s South End. My French Omelette does not include their delicious frites, bloody mary, and cappuccino. It was a nice breakfast to start off the new year nevertheless.
French Omelette (serves 2)
Crack the eggs and whip together until smooth. Mix in the half & half and herbes de provence. Start slicing up the goat cheese into small wedges.
Next, heat up your frying pan over medium-high heat. Spray the pan with cooking spray. When it’s hot, pour half the egg mixture into the pan. Using a fork or spatula, lift edges up as they cook to allow the egg liquid to flow under. Once it is nearly finished cooking (only a small amount of the egg liquid remains), place half the goat cheese slices down the middle. Fold the sides of the omelette over onto the goat cheese and flip over the entire omelette afterwards. Plate omelette. Repeat with remaining egg mixture and goat cheese.
I’m still trying to master the perfect omelette, but here are my pictures of my two attempts yesterday. Don’t worry if your omelette doesn’t look perfect- it will most likely still taste delish.
