Caramelized Onions and Garlic Cheese Omelette

Who doesn't know how to make an omelette...the answer would be no one, as everyone knows how to make them, but the most important is the the contents (fillings) same as a person, as is what is inside a person that counts (their personality) same goes for the omelette, the fillings are it's personality, so make them good.

However simple it may be, this one is one of the best tasting omelettes I've made, and as such I wanted to share this with my followers. As to the potato wedges, there several recipes previously posted on how to make these, look in my previous postings or search for the keyword "wedges" in the labels.

Receita em Portugues AQUI

Recipe Ingredients: (1 person)
  • 2 big eggs (mixed in a bowl)
  • 3 garlic cloves (minced)
  • 1/2 onion (thinly sliced)
  • 3 soup spoons full of cubed cheese (I used cheddar and cut it into very small cubes)
  • a little olive oil
  • salt and black pepper to taste.

Place a non stick frying pan on the stove with a little olive oil, temper it with sea salt and black pepper, once hot add the onion and garlic, always stirring let them go golden brown virtually caramelizing them, (both the garlic and the onion will get a specific sweetish taste, which is beautiful) at this stage remove them from the fire, and pour them inside the mixed eggs , and stir these well.

Put the frying pan back on the stove with a little of olive oil, and once hot pour in the mixture of eggs and onions, at the start stir it as if you were going to make scrambled eggs, but as soon as it starts to dry stop mixing, as to achieve a perfect omelette it must be (a little) moist inside. Leaving 2 centimetres from the edge on the pan, lay a line of cheese cubes across the middle of the omelette, and then with a teflon spatula fold one third of the omelette back into it's center and do the same from the oposite side, let it cook for 1-2 minutes and once that is achieved flip it over letting it cook for another 1-2 minutes, after this it is ready to serve and eat, when you cut the amelette in the middle should be moist and the cheese should ooze out yumyum!!

You can serve it with what to want, I made potato wedges, you can use salad, rice and/or any other combinations that you may like. Bon appetit.
These eggs that I used were given by a friend who has hens and liked my blog so the eggs are free range and organic (super fresh), my friend's name is Manuel. Today some friends also gave me a wonderful fish which I will cook soon, but for now I have more surprises for you coming soon. xx
