Special Saturday Breakfast – Mushroom & Pepper Omelette

Hello again, reader!

This week’s special Saturday breakfast was a roller-coaster of cooking. We decided to make omelettes with mushroom and peppers but they didn’t quite turn out as planned.

I don’t actually like omelettes. I used to! My grandma used to make me ham and cheese omelettes as a teenager and I loved them. I don’t know what happened but one day, I didn’t like omelettes anymore. There aren’t many dishes that I don’t like and I like to try them every now and again to check that I still don’t like them. That’s what I decided to do this weekend.

How we made our mushroom and pepper omelettes

Our ingredients made enough omelette for two people. We used 5 large free-range eggs, a large splash of milk, salt and pepper for the egg mixture. For the filling, we used one orange pepper, about 5 or 6 closed cup mushrooms, one spring onion and a chunk of cheese (grated). We finely chopped the vegetables and cooked them for about 4 minutes before adding them to our egg mixture.

We actually made a mistake when cooking our omelette. If you have two equally sized frying pans then split your mixture between the two and cook them alongside each other. We tried to cook one big omelette in one pan – there was way too much mixture and it took forever. Not to mention, it made the bottom of our omelette incredibly dry and almost burnt. We flipped it over into another pan to stop it all crumbling to pieces and it turned into something that resembled a frittata rather than an omelette. Here’s how to make a real omelette.

To be honest, I didn’t enjoy my omelette and not because it was dry on the bottom. After I had eaten some of it, I started to feel sickly which is what I experienced last time I tried an omelette. I think it’s safe to say that I just don’t like omelettes anymore. James enjoyed his which was good as we hate throwing away food.

Next week, I’ll stick to a special Saturday breakfast that I’m guaranteed to enjoy. I enjoyed picking out the mushroom and peppers but the way the egg is cooked in an omelette is not to my liking at all. Hope you don’t mind me keeping it real for you!

Always remember to take a ‘paws’!
