'Cha-pa-lang' Omelette

My Chapalang Omelettle

As a spontaneous person, I tend to do things unplanned at times. It goes the same for cooking/baking. Sometimes, I’m just too lazy to leave the house just to get some ingredients I don’t already have. So what do I do? Rummage the fridge of course, and suss out the stuff to use and what not.

Recently, I’ve enjoyed the freedom of omelettes in the morning. I am very much a breakfast person and love to eat a nutritious breakfast to start my day right and so I try to pack in as much healthy and proper ingredients as possible. What better way to do it than through a yummy omelette, no?

I love eggs and I am crazy about them because they’re so versatile and besides they are crucial in most baked goods especially brownies!!! Heh… so anyway I usually vary the ingredients in my ‘cha-pa-lang’ omelette. ‘Cha-pa-lang’ actually means random. So yea, now you know whey I call it that.

And so, I’ve been playing around with omelettes lately and I find it oh-so-fun mixing and matching. Like the other day, I just threw in some peas to my omelette. Yea, those who hate peas will go Eeee… but I actually like peas. Weird huh? I used to abhor them. But like I said before, most foods that I used to not like, I kinda like eating them now. Yep. Any how, the picture you see up there, well there’s onions, tomatoes, peas, cut chillies and cheese in it.

Here’s what I do… I pour a lil olive oil into the frying pan, then I cook the sliced onions first until they caramelise and turn almost translucent. Then I add my tomatoes and the rest of the ingredients. The last step is the eggs of course. I know it sounds like a frittata, which it could probably be, if I add alot more eggs but you see it’s only me eating it so I usually just make an omelette.

There you go… what a simple way to start a fantastic morning, no? I know it doesn’t sound or look like much but hey, it tastes great. I usually eat it with toast. What can I say, I love eggs and bread too… 🙂

Your omelette looks yummy! I would prepare omelette for a quick meal too if I want something light and I have mushrooms and other vegs in the fridge 🙂

Gosh, we are like 2 peas from the same pod. Breakfast is my favourite meal of the day and i simply love eggs as well.. .done any style. My friend nags at me whenever i ingest them 🙂

I’m a sucker for desserts as well and this is one of the reason why i enjoy this blog.

Try using cubed potatoes and ham and/or bacon, and turn it into a skillet! ^^
