From The Kitchen: My New Year’s Day Omelet

Posted: January 3, 2012 in From The Kitchen


It’s a new year. When I woke up on January 1, 2012, I went down to the kitchen and utilized every healthy, primal ingredient I had in the house to make this omelet.

Ingredients

  • 1 Tbsp Butter
  • 3-4 Mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/2 medium Onion, sliced
  • 1 handful of chopped Kale
  • 2 ounces of cooked meat (your choice)
  • 3-4 eggs
  • Salt and Pepper, to taste

It’s a simple recipe to throw together. You can use leftover steak or chicken. I used some all-natural sausage. Here’s how you put it together.
Preparation Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven by turning on the broiler setting.
  2. Heat pan thoroughly over medium and melt butter. 20120101-165500.jpg
  3. Add Onions, Mushrooms and Meat to the pan. Stir while cooking for 2 minutes.20120101-165507.jpg
  4. Add the handful of Kale to the pan.20120101-165514.jpg
  5. Cover the pan and allow the kale to steam for 4 minutes.20120101-165521.jpg
  6. While pan is steaming, whip your eggs, salt and pepper in a bowl or blender. I used my Hamilton Beach Personal Blender to whip some air into the eggs for a fluffier omelet.20120101-165527.jpg
  7. Open pan and stir all ingredients. Onions, Mushrooms and meat should be browned and kale should be wilted.20120101-165534.jpg
  8. Pour eggs over the top to cover all of the pan.20120101-165541.jpg
  9. Allow to cook 1-2 minutes on the stove top.20120101-165548.jpg
  10. Move pan to the oven and leave under the broiler 3-6 minutes until egg becomes fluffy and slightly browned.20120101-165554.jpg
  11. Carefully remove the pan from the oven using a heat resistant pad or oven mit.20120101-165601.jpg
  12. Use a rubber spatula to release omelet from the pan and slide it on to a plate while folding in half.

All that’s left to do after that is to start eating. I enjoyed mine with a cup of unsweetened green tea. Give this one a try. It’s full of flavor and the kale is soft with no tough stems. If you get a chance to make this or try making your own modified version at home, leave a comment to discuss how it turned out.

Talk to you later!
