Omlette du formage (simple cheese omelet)


Sunday morning breakfast can be easy and classy if you want to. As such we think that a simple cheese omelet is always the fancy way to go. 

Let’s daydream a bit and not think about the fact that we just left the office and are complete workaholics – Imagine, you just woke up and you do not feel like cooking a whole lot, but you also feel like you you wanna be pampered a bit. 

This is a cheese-based mozzarella – but if you are feeling fancy, you can add some strips of ham or even spicy it up with a bit of gorgonzola or some sort of french fancy cheese that has been hanging in your fridge for a while.  

Here it goes, for 2 people you will need: 

  • 4 medium eggs
  • 100gr of feta cheese
  • 100 gr of mozzarella
  • A bit of butter
  • Salt and pepper
  • Fresh parsley

How to get it done: 

  1. Precut everything to make your life easier. Eggs can overcook very easily so it’s recommended to have everything precut
  2. Add a bit of butter in a warm pan. Note that the pan does not need to be in high heat – a medium-low is okay 
  3. Beat two of the eggs and add some of the feta in there.
  4. Add everything in the pan and spread it around
  5. Place the cut mozzarella in slices on top and put a pan on. This will melt the cheese
  6. After a bit, fold the omelet in half and let it be for a second
  7. Depending on how you like your eggs cooked, it’s up to you how runny you like them. 
  8. Server this simple cheese omelet with a bit of chopped parsley on top as it would give it some color

If you want something else for breakfast, may I recommend tackling oats? Here is a greats oats recipe.
