Dressing up the eggs

Five ingredients. That's all you'll need to make this delicious, filling omelette that'll leave you wanting more. I'm serious! This stuff is so good, I make it at least twice a day, cos it's always gone by the time I want to eat it. This is what you'll need:

Ingredients:

Three eggs

Chilies

Spring onions

Tomato buillion (stock) is preferred, if not chicken buillion is fine

Sesame oil

Method:

Thinly slice the spring onions and chilies. You can use as many chilies as you like, depending on how spicy you like your food. I usually use two spring onions and three chilies, seeds in. I like my food pretty spicy, so you might want to start with a conservative number like 1. Haha. Oh, and take the seeds out if you need to. You do this by splitting the chili down the middle, in half and sliding the back of your knife down the membrane of the chili to remove the seeds. NOTE: If you've never worked with chilies before, use gloves and wash your hands thoroughly with soap and warm water after handling them.

Put the sliced spring onions and chilies on a plate and put them aside. Grab a bowl, break three eggs and whisk together to break the yolks. Take your tomato or chicken buillion and grab a good pinch of it; drop into the bowl with the eggs. Whisk a little more.

You're ready to cook! Heat a non-stick pan on medium high heat. Give the pan a minute to get hot and then add some canola/vegetable/olive oil. Grab your spring onions and chilies and drop those into the hot pan. Sprinkle a little salt to get the flavors going and toss. Once you've sauteed the onions and chilies for about a minute, whisk your eggs one more time and get them into the pan.

Let the eggs set, moving the chilies to the middle of the pan. This will break the egg but that's the idea; it looks pretty and you get a good distribution of the veggies this way. If you don't move the veggies to the middle of the omelette, they will stay on the edges of it.

Once it looks like there's only a little bit of "wetness" in the middle, you are ready to flip! Don't be afraid to flip the omelette. If it breaks, it's perfectly fine, that's the beauty of it! Just make sure both sides of the omelette have been cooked. When the other side has been cooking for about forty-five seconds, turn the heat off and let it sit on the hot stove while you get a plate.

Slide your colorful deliciousness onto your plate and get ready for the best part. Get a teaspoon of sesame oil and lightly drizzle this roasted, earthy goodness all over your omelette while it's still hot. Take a good whiff of your creation; doesn't it smell heavenly?! Quarter the omelette and serve with a plate of steaming hot Jasmine rice. Yum.

I love making omelets. I have never made an omelet with tomato bullion before though. It looks delicious, I can't wait to try it.

Sounds good. I think the secret to the great taste is in the spring onion and the sesame oil. Sesame oil has such a great flavor and it smells heavenly in my opinion. I never thought to use it in an omelet, although spring onions are a must. I'll be giving this a go - thanks very much!

Thank you Shawn Scarborough and North Wind for the wonderful comments. I guess growing up in Asia we take sesame oil for granted; it has such a robust and beautiful flavor. As for the tomato buillion, I found this gem just wandering down my supermarket aisle! It's a wonder what treasures you'll find just walking down there. Haha. Cheers!

Hi NotSoPerfect,

After reading the comments you left on my page I decided to check out yours... That was a mistake. I read "The Best Omelet I Ever Had," and it was still two and a half hours until breakfast! My stomach growled and my head kept swimming back to your omelet. You should post warnings so that hungry guys, like me, won't be left wishing they hadn't read it. Maybe next time you could make an eggplant dish, or something else I hate. Haha... Great writing and thanks for the nice comments. :)

You won't regret it Simone Smith! It's perfect "get-well-soon" food too (that's what I've been having since I've been unwell this week). Flu season doesn't have to be bad when you can enjoy comfort food like this! Enjoy and thank you!! =)

Man...ditto on the making a poor guy hungry, in the middle of a 12-hour night shift! ARGH! I LOVE omlettes, but I always get the same boring one. WILL try this. Very nice ideas here, and some 'juicy' writing to 'spice' it up a bit! heh

Boy that looks good and fairly easy to make. I wonder if I can duplicate it? I'm going to try. The best omelette I ever had contained chorizo and some jalepeno peppers and was at a hotel in the Bay Area made to order right in front of me. Man that was good, nothing like it! Thanks for sharing!

NotSoPerfect 4 years ago from United States Author

KDF, I am sure you can duplicate this omelette recipe or make it even better than the original! The beauty about this dish is, the possibilities are endless. The omelette you had at that hotel sounds amazing...! Thanks for your kind comments and please try this omelette recipe if you haven't already! God bless.

I just read this tonight and now I've got to wait till the morning to try it for breakfast. I don't have any chilies but I've got all the other ingredients and I'm going to try making it with olives instead. But for the following morning I'll try it with Chilies, which I'll pick up in the supermarket tomorrow. Looking forward to trying this. Sounds like a great idea and very tasty.
