I used to believe that a good omelet had to have some kind of meat in it (for some reason, I can’t eat eggs alone. Without breakfast sausage, or ham on the side.).
Until, Husband found this awesome recipe.
This meatless omelet is the absolute best I’ve ever tasted, at home. Fluffy, flavorful & filling! We don’t miss the meat at all.
Here is the Recipe: (adapted from food.com by Kittencal)
Fluffy “No-Meat” Omelet
4 large eggs
1/8 teaspoon baking powder (this will make the omelet fluffy)
2 tablespoons half & half
fresh black pepper
1-2 tablespoons butter (can use more or less)
1/4 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
1 green onion, finely chopped
• Whisk eggs, baking powder, cream, green onions, salt & pepper, in a small bowl, until frothy.
• Over medium heat, heat an 8-inch skillet (until your hands feel warm when held about 2-inches above the surface).
• Add in butter, and swirl to coat the bottom of the pan evenly.
• Pour the whisked eggs into the skillet; let set slightly.
• Using a heat-proof spatula, push eggs from edge towards the center; tilt pan to let the egg mixture fill in the spaces.
• Repeat until omelet is JUST set (about 1-2 minutes). (If you like to ensure that the omelet is not “wet” inside, flip the entire egg over, with the spatula, to cook thoroughly. Please note: this won’t make for the “prettiest” omelet.)
• Sprinkle most of the grated cheese down the center of the omelet. Save a tablespoon or two to garnish.
• Using the spatula, gently fold the omelet over the cheese. Then, sprinkle the remaining cheese on top.
• Serve with toast & fruit preserves.
