Monday Morning in the Kitchen: Dad's (Product Placement) Omelet

My parents stand firmly behind this blogging thing I'm attempting.  Before I left their house on Saturday, Mom said, "You need to take a picture of Dad's omelet!"  I agreed, with the caveat that I then needed the recipe, so I could feature the omelet on Monday's (today's) blog post. 

 

Before Dad gave me the recipe, he said that the omelet pan is also important, and I needed to take a photo of the pan.  So, if you have a cast-iron pan that looks like this, you're good to go:


Dad began reciting the recipe:  

1/2 cup Better Than Eggs
1 stick cheese--At this point, Mom rushed to the refrigerator to elaborate--1 stick Frigo Light String Mozzarella Cheese
1 handful of diced mushroom slices
(Now Dad caught the vision of specificity, at least in product placement)
whole bunch of Kirkland's Organic No-Salt Seasoning
Winco's Non-Stick Olive Oil Cooking Spray
Anything else you'd like to add--salmon, in this specific omelet; bacon and sharp cheddar cheese, if you can get away with it

Spray the pan with the cooking spray, and preheat the pan at medium-high heat (#6 on my parents' electric stove).

Pour the eggs in, and with a fork, pull the eggs toward the center of the pan, swirling the pan as you go.

Put the toppings on.

Cook it.

I was allowed to taste-test the final product, and I gave it 2 thumbs up.

  1. The omelet making skill is a great one to have. In college, I had a job in the dining hall. On Saturday mornings I was the omelet maker. Because of it, I can now totally impress my kids with the flipping of the egg by tossing it in the air.
    Your parents are just plain enjoyable.

  3. Yum! We love eggs and now that they aren't bad for us anymore we have them for dinner at least once a week. I will have to try your Dad's omelet!
