Welcome once again to
Cooking With Bwog, dedicated to providing quality, cheap, healthy, and easy recipes to make your meal-plan-free life as tasty as possible. If you have any amazing cooking secrets you’d like to share or questions for the Bwog Culinary Team, please email [email protected]. This weeks theme: getting creative with omelet ingredients

First: The Typical Omelet

cook time: 10 minutes

necessities: eggs, pan, spatula, bowl

options: meat, cheese, veggies, S&P, cream, chocolate – just kidding…but wouldn’t that be cool if it worked?

Omelet making is simple: crack eggs (usually two) into a bowl and beat them. Pour beaten eggs into pan on medium low. Use spatula to lift edges and allow the raw stuff to seep under and cook. When it’s almost cooked through, add innards. Fold half the omelet over onto the other half and let it heat a bit longer so the cheese melts and the other stuff gets warm. Consume.

What to do if you’re sick of this dish after the jump.

 

Fritatas

Cook time: 20 minutes

Necessities: Eggs (4 at least), pan (preferably with a metal handle), oven, cream or milk

Options: The same stuff that you would put in an omelet

Preheat oven to 350ish. Beat eggs in a bowl, add about 1/4 cup of milk or cream per 2 eggs you use. Pour into pan and throw the other stuff you want into the raw egg. Put the pan on the stove and heat it on medium to cook the bottom (it should not be cooked all the way through, just beginning to solidify) and then throw it in the preheated oven for 10 minutes or so until it rises and looks done.

Quiche

Cook time: 35 minutes

Necessities: Eggs (4), milk, crust (get a premade one), pie pan, oven

Options: the same as for an omelet

Preheat oven to 350 (Bwog secret: you can cook anything at 350). Beat eggs, add milk (1/2 cup per egg). Grease pie pan and put crust in it. Brown crust in the oven for 10 minutes. Put optional ingredients into pie pan and pour egg mixture over them. Bake until done (usually around 25-35 minutes depending on the oven).

Breakfast Tacos

Cook time: 10 minutes

Necessities: eggs, pan, tortillas

Options: peppers, tomato, avocado, meat

Cut up the veggies into small pieces and fry them with oil (or without if you don’t have any) until they’re soft. Put them in a bowl and cover the bowl with a plate so they stay warm. Prepare the meat the way you want it, and throw it into the bowl also. Then beat the eggs and scramble them. When they’re almost done, throw everything else back in with them so it is all warm. Put in tortillas and eat. Oh, you can warm the tortillas up too if they’re not fresh – just put them on the pan for 10 seconds with a bit of oil.

A few egg secrets:

If you’re short on eggs you can always add milk to make the quantity larger. Water works, too, but doesn’t taste as good.

If you’re vegan and you don’t eat eggs and you’re baking something that asks for eggs, substitute apple sauce. It works pretty well in cakes, pancakes, french toast, and more.

If your eggs are overdone you should try taking them off the heat a little earlier than you think. Eggs retain heat really well and continue to cook for a while after they’re off the pan.

If your skin is dry paint it with egg white! It is really slimy but wonderful.

    about political bickering. how dare you bwog appeal to the finer side of life?

  6. hey, bwog!

  7. daniella

  8. Towelie  

    ZOMG IT'S AN ANARCHO-JIHADIST OMELET.

  9. my god  

    look at this anti-american food these anarcho-fascist jihadis eat. are hot dogs and apple pie not good enough for you america-hating cave-dwellers? stop cooking up your message of radical communist hate!

  10. easier quiche:  

    Get bisquick instead of a crust. Use equal amounts bisquick and milk (judge the milk based on amount of eggs, as you do in the recipe). Mix the bisquick, eggs, and milk together, and pour it over the veggie/meat ingredients in the pie pan. While baking (375 for 30 minutes, or until golden brown and cooked through) the bisquick makes its own crust. Not as nice a crust as the prebought one, but easier by far.

  11. i was just wonderin  

    is the blue and white really just a euphemism for adderall?

  12. damn you  

    you omelet eating leftist jihadists.

  13. umm  

    so when one person makes a comment about this somehow being a leftist post, condoning jihad, whatever other things o'reilly has said, it might be cute. when multiple people start saying the same thing, you're just a bunch of idiots.

  14. original jokester  

    yeah asshole. now my leftist jihad omelet post looks idiotic too.

  15. lazy  

    and never forget...you can always scramble a few eggs with a fork, pop them in the microwave, and add a little chunky salsa. great for those of us lacking in a kitchen
