|the perfect omelette|
I am forever in search of a breakfast that will satisfy me until lunch. So far, the only successes have been full-fat yogurt with fruit and granola or an omelette.
I had made crustless mini quiche with bacon, thyme, and chevre a few years ago, and for some reason had the inspiration to make a single serving today.
I do not have the answer to perfect, fluffy, creations when it comes to producing an attractive omelette, if you do - please share! It looks like scrambled eggs, but tastes like heaven.
single-serving omelette with fresh thyme, bacon, and chevre (I think this was originally a parade magazine recipe)
2 tsp water
3 pieces of bacon
1/4 of a small onion, chopped
1 tsp dijon
1/2 tsp fresh thyme leaves, removed from stem (I have some outside!)
crumbled chevre (amount to your liking, I used a nice handful)
1. In the microwave, place slices of bacon on a plate, sprinkle onions overtop. Cover with a paper towel and cook to your liking - I like crispy! Allow to cool, then crumble bacon and set bacon and onions aside, discarding the grease.
2. In a small cup, whisk eggs, water, thyme leaves, salt, and pepper.
3. Cook egg mixture in a small saute pan, using your choice of: oil, non-stick spray, or butter.
4. Sprinkle bacon/onion mixture overtop. Sprinkle chevre overtop.
5. Once firm, fold omelette over itself, allow to finish cooking, then serve.
