There is things I really can’t get my head around – before it was pancakes and omelets, now it’s only omelets. For me as a chef it should be a piece of cake, but I think it’s a mental blockage I have.
After all my moaning about my omelet making a friend of mine showed me this omelet dish that she had, Tapperware, for the microwave. It’s a true magic.
I eat omelets for dinner at times, just can’t be bothered with a proper cooked meals.
For this quick fix I only used red onion, eggs and milk that was fresh – everything else came out of my freezer.
I defrosted 1 cup Findus Greek Warm Salad; a mixture of tomatoes, red onion, spinach, sugar snap peas, feta cheese and black olives in a sieve. 1/2 cup diced bacon, 2 tbsp grated cheese and Findus frozen Italian herbs.
I heated some butter in the frying pan – added finely sliced red onion and bacon, stir until the bacon was cooked and then I added the defrosted vegetable mix. You can use what ever vegetable mix you fancy, it the pieces are big – cut them smaller – season with salt and freshly ground pepper – and I also added a pinch of Spaghetti spice mix.
3 eggs I wisked together with 2 tbsp milk and added the grated cheese. Then I put the bacon-vegetable mix in the middle of the dish and poor the egg-milk over – and sprinkled the herbs over it.
With a 3 egg omelet – 3 min in the microwave is needed. And it comes out fluffy and just perfect.
The omelet I just had with some hand-ripped Romain lettuce and the last of the my fantastic couscous dressing.
A good and tasty substantial meal for a ….. lonely diner was done. Even Oscar liked this omelet.

They are relatively inexpensive.
We all have microwave ovens.
Why do we need to go out?”
