A Very Stuffed Omelette

Dear Foodies & Friends,

Exams are OVER! I’m so happy and relieved at the same time. Finally some semblance of normalcy. On the downside, my sleep pattern is all out of order. Last night I woke up at three in the morning, and spent a good hour walking around the corridors listening to music. You can imagine how zombified I was this morning. The weather here is no help either. It’s at least 30°s C (79° F)  in Hyderabad at the moment and humid too. So far my solution has been to gulp down liters of water, which on hindsight hasn’t really helped, since I now feel like a disoriented stuffed balloon, and no one likes repeated visits to discrepit public bathrooms.

I know, I know, the sensible thing to do would be to keep the door open and get some ventilation going, but we have around a dozen cats roaming about, and for some reason they can’t resist the urge to hide under our beds. They sit there meowing in great contentment (no doubt hatching surprise attacks upon our poor unsuspecting souls ). On other occasions they sneak into cupboards and nestle themselves comfortably in our belongings. This dog lover is not pleased. Hostel life, I tell you.

Stuffed with cheesy veggie goodness!

Moving on to these AMAZING eggs! I made this dish at the start of the semester but never got around to posting it. My friends have been requesting it for ages! It’s a stuffed vegetable omelette with lots of cheese, and perfectly soft, golden eggs. Delicious! I love how versatile eggs are, scrumptious in just about every cuisine! They even look adorable (Humpty Dumpty comes to mind, poor Humpty). I have so many memories of egg-decorating for Easter, and lots of fun hunting around. The smell when I’d find a rotten one hidden away though? Ooof, disgusting.

Getting back to my recipe! This dish is hearty and great for every occasion. And just to throw in another plus? It’s pretty as a picture. You’ve got to try it. 😀

Nom!

Ingredients

Eggs In a Pan

  1. 4-6 Eggs (depending on the size)
  2. 2 Tomatoes plus a few cherry tomatoes, for a little burst of flavor
  3. 1 Onion
  4. 200gms of Mushrooms
  5. 100gms- 150 gms of Spinach
  6. Salt
  7. Pepper to taste
  8. A Teaspoon (or two) of milk
  9. A knob of butter
  10. 2-4 Slices of Cheese
  11. Sriracha (optional)

Directions

Pretty as a Picture!

STEP 1: Whisk together the eggs, salt, pepper, milk and set aside. In pan, add some butter and oil to a pan and fry the onions and mushrooms until they are both golden brown and well caramelized. Remove and keep aside till needed.

Ingredients

STEP 2: Wilt the spinach lightly making sure not to overcook it, the lightly fry the tomatoes, just to remove the raw edge. Clean the pan and add in a knob of butter. Pour in the eggs and swirl around. When they are partially cooked, add in the slice of cheese, and vegetables.

Bon Appetit!

STEP 3: Fold over the omelette (Make sure you aren’t clumsy like me and get burned in the process), and remove from heat. It will cook through in the residual heat. Make sure the eggs don’t brown, or they will be overcooked. Toss some cherry tomatoes through a little olive, salt and pepper, sprinkle on some parsley Et voilà! Bon Appétite! 🙂

P.s. Add some sriracha on top for a spicy kick!

  6. That is a perfectly folded omelette. I make them a lot but they all tend to leak the contents all over the place.
