Cooking With Bwog: The Omelet Edition

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again– eggs are amazing little self-contained ovoids of golden glory. Plus, they’re cheap and versatile. So, on a weekly basis, the number of eggs I consume would boggle your mind. A lot of people I know hate eggs, BUT that is only because they don’t know their preferred cooking method. Ya see, you got sunny-side up, scrambled, poached, over-easy, over-medium, and over-hard (to be honest, I don’t really understand the appeal of this last one). We’re going to start off with an easy one: the omelet. The only thing you have to remember about cooking your omelet is that nice and slow wins the race. It will keep your eggs light and fluffy, rather than flat and burned. 

This Bwogger eats this veggie-cream cheese on the reg.

Alright, first things first: whisk together some eggs (about 2-3) with a few splashes of milk, a few grinds of salt, and some cracks of pepper. Heat up a large/medium cast iron skillet and oil the pan with butter or olive oil. Keep the heat to medium-low and have patience. Add whatever fillings you want to the egg-milk mixture (minus additionally dairy products or avocado). Pour egg-filling into the pan. Let the mixture set a little bit and then, using a fork, lift the edges of the egg pancake and tilt the pan, letting uncooked juices run to the edges. Do this a few different times, until the omelet is light and fluffy. Add cheese, avocado (basically anything that melts or is really soft) on top of the omelet and let it heat up. Fold one side of the omelet over the other and flip your omelet for good measure. Then top with more salt and pepper and enjoy.

Here are a few different combinations that I love:

Roasted Veggies with Cream Cheese

Cheddar Cheese and Veggie Omelet with Black Beans, Potatoes, Salsa and Avocado

Asparagus, Caramelized Onion and Goat Cheese

Bacon, Chive, and Cheddar
