Post Holiday Omelette

Happy new year! Like most households, our refrigerator is still bursting with food prepared for the holidays. I was getting tired of eating humba, spring rolls, and macaroni salad, so for dinner, I whipped up some omelette. Of course, when I foraged for ingredients to put in my omelette, there was nothing else except holiday leftovers: queso de bola and ham. Not that I’m complaining though, I love the Christmas ham!

Post Holiday Omelette

Basic Omelette Recipe
3 medium eggs
pinch of salt
freshly ground black peppper
1/2 tsp chopped celery leaves
filling of your choice
oil (optional)

  1. Beat eggs in a bowl with salt, pepper and celery leaves.
  2. Heat oil in a non-stick frying pan over medium heat. The amount of oil varies on how non-stick your non-stick frying pan is.
  3. Pour the egg mix when the oil is hot. Swirl it around the pan until it covers the entire pan. Let the eggs cook for a while. When the eggs has cooked a bit, swirl the pan again.
  4. When the top of the egg is fairly dry, put your filling on one side of the omelette, leaving space on the edges.
  5. Flip the other end of the omelette to cover the fillings.
  6. Continue cooking for 10 more seconds then serve.

  1. I’m such a terrible cook that I still at times fail cooking omelettes – they end up all runny and ugly. Feh! Have you tried grating queso de bola into your omelettes though? I love cheese omelettes!
