Omelet Lessons with the Short Order Cook

Thumbnail image for iStock_000005800784XSmall.jpgI don’t know about you, but when it comes to the topics of eggs, every single member of my family likes them prepared a different way. For me, I do the straight up hard boiled version (I’m not a big fan of yolk), my son opts for scrambled, my daughter is interested in cheese omelets and my husband, is the adventurous type and can go for a mexican style creation one day and nova lox and cream cheese selection the next.
No matter their preferences, I’ve come to discover that cooking omelets can actually be fun and good for you too. Since I’m a proud member of the Eggland’s Best Pink Dozen, I’m happy to let you know that EB eggs contain high levels of Vitamin B12 and Vitamin E, and are a good source of Vitamin A and Vitamin B2. They also contain 25 percent less saturated fat and 19 percent less cholesterol than regular eggs. And they were recently featured in Women’s Health as a healthy option for egg lovers.
If you’ve got the right pans (we’ve got a fabulous omelet and poached egg maker that I bought this year) and you use butter or a butter substitute, you’re well on your way to making a great breakfast. While hard boiled and scrambled eggs are pretty easy to master, I happen to love experimenting with different ingredients and have found the perfect omelet recipe to satisfy my sweet tooth – yes you can make sweet omelets too. Check out my recipe for granny smith omelets and enjoy!
