Recipe - Lazy Saturday Omelet
I was on call yesterday so I couldn't really head down to the super market to pick stuff up for my lunch. That meant having to try and use what I had in the cupboards and the fridge.
Well, this is what I came up with. It turned out to be tasty and filling. What more could I ask for?
Don't forget to heat the grill (broiler) so that it's ready towards the end of the cooking.
Ingredients (serves 1 - 2)
4 - 6 mushrooms, sliced
1 red onion, halved and thinly sliced
2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
Spicy sausage (pepperoni for example), sliced
3 - 4 eggs, beaten
Grated cheese, strong cheddar preferably.
Heat the oil in a frying pan on low to medium heat. Once heated, add the mushrooms, onions and garlic and let this cook slowly. Season well.
Once the mushrooms and onion are nice and soft, add the sausage. Let this cook until the sausage starts to crisp.
Pour in the eggs and give it all a good stir. Let this cook away until the eggs starts to set properly.
Scatter the cheese on top of the omelet and shove the pan under your grill until the cheese starts to go nice and golden.
Plate, scatter some fresh parsley on top.
