The Deconstructed Omelette

Why a Deconstructed Omelette?
The simple truth is that the copious amounts of veggie no longer fit in my omelet!  The solution was to serve the delicious veggies on the side as an accompaniment to the omelet, allowing both to have their moment in the sun.  And boy, are they great together.  It’s a satisfying and beautiful breakfast, lunch, or dinner packed with flavor and nutrition and filling to boot.  Furthermore, once we took the veggies out of the omelet we realized, ‘Wow, I like these veggies…no, I love these veggies!’

DeOmelette_3your serving plate. Reheat your pan and add 1 t. olive oil and let the oil heat and coat your pan for a minute or two,  Add the chives to the beaten eggs and pour the mixture into the pan.  Flip the omelette with a flick of the wrist when the sides begin to bubble and the omelette appears to be half cooked.  Sprinkle the omelette with parmesan cheese and flip it in half and onto the serving plate with the cooked veggies. Omelette_4
