Broccoli Omelette

Broccoli Omelette
Fuel up with one of these easy Omelettes in the morning and have a tank full of energy to last a whole day... or at least until lunch. ;)
Let's keep it real, the extra energy is needed during this busy time of the year. After all, the weather is cold, our calendars are full, not to mention the fighting of the crowds when Christmas shopping.
So yeah, we need a little bump in the morning and this yummy Broccoli Omelette is the perfect vehicle to give you just that.

Preparation time:  30 minutes
Yield: Three 10 cm Omelettes
Level: Easy Peasy

  • 3 Eggs
  • 6 Broccoli Florets (chopped)
  • 2 tbs Chopped Bacon
  • 2 tbsp Water
  • 1 Small garlic clove
  • 3 tbsp Shredded Gouda
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • Oregano (optional)
In a small/medium pan, heat up the bacon and the 2 tbsp of water together. The water will help the bacon release it's fat, will evaporate and the bacon will crisp up. Then add garlic and broccoli and saute them for a couple of minutes, season with salt, pepper and set it aside.

In a small bowl, break one egg, beat it and set it aside. Heat up a 10 cm (5 in) skillet to medium, drizzle with a bit of olive oil, pour in the beat egg, sprinkle some oregano and season with salt and pepper. You can cook your Omelette the way you like best, leave it slightly underdone so it's still creamy or fry it both sides so the egg is cooked through. Repeat this process with the two other eggs. 

To assemble, lay one Omelette on a plate, top it with the Bacon & Broccoli saute and shredded cheese. You can devour it by it self, make yourself a breakfast sandwich or eat it on the side with toast and jam... YUM!
