My sister happens to be newly pregnant. All of us ex-pregnant women know that you crave foods when you are pregnant that you may not normally want. Karen is not a big fan of eggs usually, but she has suddenly been positively craving them. I was telling her about the absurdly simple omelet I have been making for myself recently, and it got me craving it for lunch today. So I decided to post the picture/recipe.
This is the omelet to make if you are starving, craving protein, and you do not want to think about it. It requires no skill to pull it off, and it is very satisfying. All you need is a good 10-inch (medium) nonstick skillet.
1/2-1 tablespoon butter
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 big dash hot sauce
a few slices cheddar cheese
Place a medium nonstick skillet on medium heat with the butter. Turn on the broiler. Whisk together eggs, spices, hot sauce, and salt and pepper to taste. When the butter stops foaming, pour in the egg mixture. Push in the sides of the eggs with a rubber spatula, letting the uncooked eggs fill in the gaps. When most of the eggs have set on the bottom of pan, but the top is still wet, slide it under the broiler. (Just leave the door of the oven open, with the handle sticking out. That way you do not even need a pot holder)
When the top is slightly puffed and set (1 or 2 minutes) remove the pan from the oven. Arrange the cheddar on half the omelet. Use a fork to flip half of the omelet over the side with cheese. Slide it from the pan onto your plate. Serve with extra hot sauce if you are anything like me. Enjoy!
