I know I say this fairly frequently, but my life has been hectic lately. I just started a new job, joined a kickball league, and I’m about to start Arabic classes two nights a week on top of half-marathon training. Oh, and I’m currently sitting at Reagan National airport awaiting a flight for a quick rendezvous in Bogota. So naturally, I haven’t had ample time to draw together a good post for this blog. Not to mention, I’m supposed to start blogging on my office’s international development blog amidst this. My social life will be reduced to kickball. Which could be good or bad, I guess. Anyway, point being, I barely have time to sleep — let alone wake up early enough to really do breakfast right.
A good non-stick omelette pan, usually about 7 inches in diameter. They come pretty cheap; I got one for about ten bucks.
I scramble the eggs in a mug, and set aside. If you choose to go with onions and mushrooms, toss them in the pan and sauté lightly. Mix your tomatoes in the mug with the eggs. Use olive oil or some non-stick spray to grease the pan, and then throw in the eggs and tomatoes. On a high flame, let the omelette cook until it’s opaque, at which point you should take a small silicone spatula to lift the sides, letting the raw egg slide under the already cooked eggs. When it seems solid enough, loosen the sides of the omelette with your spatula, and flip. Don’t be scared; it’s deceptively easy.
Right after you flip it, put your fillings on top. After about a minute, it should be done cooking. Slide it onto a plate and serve with a fork on a beautiful balcony :)
