Why does nobody eat omelettes any more? I've seen you wrapping presents when its nobody's birthday!
Wrapped a non presents recently cos of friends having babies.
Where's me washboard?
four egg omelette, with courgette, pepper and mushrooms (sometimes fried potato if i'm feeling like a treat), with toast and ketchup = breakfast of kings.
you wouldn't eat 4 fried eggs or four boiled eggs?
I'd only have two fried eggs because I'd be eating them in a sandwich, so the bread makes up half the meal. Omelette, eggs is all you get. You need at least three, four if you prefer.
eggs come in boxes of ten here, you can go WILD
the next time I see you.
Dozen here, I just assumed it was a dozen eggs everywhere. Are you in USA? Because if so that's even weirder because you don't have the metric system. Except for eggs. And currency I suppose.
You can buy eggs in a half dozen as well, I should add, but that must be for sad lonely bachelors and spinsters.
and thought that it would make an amazing gourmet omellette. I'll get back to you tomorrow.
In the red corner, Meowington, who has continued NOT liking omelettes despite the things that have happened between the last time she claimed NOT to like omelettes
but in the blue corner, Noblet, who asserts that he LOVES omelettes: 'love me an omlette' (Noblet, 2 oct '11, 12:17)
Two polar views there, but which is right? Is there any place in the world for either? i.e must we reach a consensus? Extremism is surely the zeitgeist of 'the me generation', but has that generations time come to an end?
Fight! Fight! Fight! Fight! Fight! Fight!
Fight! Fight! Fight! Fight! Fight! Fight!
but when I make them, they're just a bit rubbish. Maybe I'm just rubbish at making omelettes.
but i love em....bit o cheese and some shrooms...lovely stuff
and maybe a bit of tomato OR ONION. Mmmm....cheese and onion. Would cheese and coleslaw work? Could I cook coleslaw?
I want to make one this weekend but my weekend egg quota will be used up on having egg and soldiers on Saturday morning.
then you're bound to love it.
Ah who am I kidding, I'll just have a straight up garlic omelette.
I was just referencing Meo's garlic addiction.
Though thinking about it, a potato omelette cooked with a bit of onion and garlic... maybe.
As a fellow garlic addict, I'm sure it could be made to work somehow.
Never watched Phoenix Nights.
Definitely trying that.
back away from the middle class nightmare ingredients.
Let's all just stick to ham, cheese, tomato, peppers etc.
It shoudln't have worked. It worked.
I love ommelettes.
i hate wrapping presents but I only ever have to wrap my sister's (I pay her to do my wrapping for me each xmas. I don't make her wrap her own though. I'm not that terrible.)
There is no god.
What I do is sometimes get a tin of soup... Heat it up, poach an egg in it, serve that with a pork pie.
AUSSIES DO U FEEL ME???????///
But in my experience it's mainly a South Australian thing.
Hmmm, I want to have one right now. Might go and buy a pie and a tin of pea soup. But I'm at work and would have to microwave the pie, which is a bit shit. But I'm not above doing it. Oh god, I can't make up my mind.
i also have sausages to use up, can i put sausages in an omelette?
Inspired by that butter advert, but I don't use that particular brand. Great quick dinner, 3 eggs, whatever filling or leftovers you have lying around, job done.
Got you all to admit that you liked omelettes when omlettes are nothing but crap tortillas.
You pay €20 for omelettes. Nobody is listening to you.
Jacques Pepin style.
gonna make myself an omelette.
I always forget about omelettes. They're the R.E.M. of cooked eggs.
to thank me for letting her stay in my house for the night (LAD. Not really though). Pretty sure it was my first omelette for about 10 years. I've got to get back on the omelette train.
look at me ma, im skipping
By all means serve some coleslaw on the side...but don't add coleslaw to the ommlette mixture.
and serving it with coleslaw, rather than trying to cook the coleslaw in with it.
Dunno if it's any good.
That's basically a carrot, cabbage and mayo omelette with cheese.
Coleslaw sandwich is basically carrot, cabbage and mayo with bread.
Add the coleslaw to the omelette when it's 99% cooked and then fold it in half.
I'll eat fucking anything but I wouldn't eat this
I'm going to try it this weekend. I think the key would be to pop the coleslaw on it when its pretty much cooked and then fold it over. MMM...coleslaw.
A good frittata is where it's at.
but fucked it. I invented Mexican Breakfast Eggs as a result.
can't even recreate it. they were twice cooked and perfect even when plain
THE MORE YOU EAT THE MORE YOUR LEGS (ARE GOOD)
That's what I use anyway. It seems that anything above that is considered deplorable. As for the guy above who puts a fried egg in, cmf!
I do 3-4 depending on my mood.
undercooked = wet, limp. awful.
overcooked = tough, but your ham and cheese and peppers will save you.
Along with chilli sauce and sping onions, it's an essential part of a three-egg breakfast omlette. Served on wholesome grainy bread or an English muffin.
last night, and i used 5 eggs! omlettes of amazingness.
Anything more and that's way too much protein, and I'm a veggie.
