Grayson’s reasearch via YouTube that morning has served to heighten our awareness of the potentential of an egg. With this new knowledge, omelets have become a regular in our home, always keeping in mind the key elements to an omelet cooked correctly.
Choose and ready your filling. Mine consisted of some leftovers from dinner the night before: Sauteed asparagus and steak, along with some fresh spinach and brick cheese. If your filling needs to be cooked beforehand, do so now. Omelets are a great way to enjoy many and varying vegetables. Experiment with different pairings of flavors and lots of bright colors!
I know–what about the eggs? They are, after all, the whole shabang of an omelet. Without the eggs, we have no omelet, only naked veggies and cheese. I have a confession to make here. I have yet been able to take the plunge in purchasing local, cage-free eggs. With how many eggs we go through (we have a slight fixation on eggs in this house…), I just can’t justify the price jump it would impose on our grocery budget. However, if you can–then by all means buy the good chicken babies to-be!
Let it rest. Give your pan one last tilt to make sure egg is completely covering the bottom. The egg should still look soft and now is a good time to add your cheese and prepared fillings. Let your omelet sit on this low heat for about 40 seconds. Make sure your egg is not raw, but still soft–you don’t want an over-cooked egg.
Finish’er up! Take a large spatula and gently push down the sides of your omelet to dislodge it. Tilt the omelet away from you, slip your spatula under one side, and flip it over itself for a half-circle. Now slip your omelet onto your plate and enjoy with some fresh toast topped with a bit of butter and roasted garlic!
And about that roasted garlic–this is a culinary revolution that I happened upon a few weeks ago. I raised a few eyebrows on Facebook when I posted a status that I had consumed an entire head of garlic by myself. But it was truth–this garlic is just that amazing!
Raising kids stirs something deep in our souls — an innate knowing that our time is finite. Taking my kids outside in creation, I’m discovering how to stretch our time and pack it to the brim with meaning. God’s creativity provides the riches of resources for teaching the next generation who He is and how He loves us. Join our adventure and discover inspiration and resources for refusing rush, creating habits of rest, living intentionally, and making the most of this beautiful life!
