Brunch for Lunch: An Omelette How-To

Sometimes brunch just happens. One text leads to another and soon everyone is bringing juice and eggs and muffins over! Sunday is a lazy day and spending it with friends and food is a grand idea. An omelette bar is an even greater idea!

Preparing an omelette station is a great idea, especially when you know how to make an omelette! Everyone heaps their plate with toppings- spinach, cheese, tomatoes, ham, bacon… and the new addition to our toppings bar were cream cheese (spinach and artichoke) and pesto!

Scramble two eggs, add a splash of water and pour it into a buttered 9-inch pan. With a rubber spatula, drag the egg mixture from the outside towards the center. Cooked egg will begin building up in the center the longer it is in the pan. Tilt the pan so that the uncooked egg fills the space that the cooked egg made. When the omelette looks pretty cooked through (there will be some uncooked egg on the top), sprinkle your toppings on one half of the circle and wait for the cheese to melt or the spinach to wilt a bit. Fold the un-topped side over, wait a minute to let it cook through and slip it onto your plate! Enjoy!
