When I did South Beach the first time I ate a LOT of omelettes for breakfast, and to be honest I got rather sick of them, so haven't made any in ages, however I thought I'd give this one from 101 Cookbooks a go to ease me back into them:
And here's what I made (I was trying a slightly arty shot in the morning sunlight, think this needs more work!):
Phew, I think I've got over my omelette phobia! These are made very thin, like a crepe, with the filling added out of the pan before rolling up, crepe-like, which was much nicer than the rather chunkier ones I was used to, with the fillings cooked in.
I ran out of salad leaves before I got to this - oops! Oh well, it tasted great anyway. I also threw in a bit of lemon thyme that I happened to have casting around in the fridge, as I know it goes rather nicely with goat's cheese. I used my special French pesto that I get in a huge jar from a lovely wee guy at a local Provencal market when we make it over there. I eke it out sparingly, using it only when I know I'll really taste it, so it doesn't ever get wasted on pasta or anything like that!
Ease Of Preparation:
Super easy, but very quick in the pan, so make sure you have your herbs chopped ahead of time!
This was filling to me as a breakfast even without the salad leaves. I think if I were adding the leaves, I'd have it for lunch instead.
Yep, definitely think I'll be making this again, and I think I might try some other fillings too.
