My son is a much more creative cook than I have ever been and he loves coming up with his very own creative concoctions.
This time it’s something he calls a “Fried Egg Omelet”
And it’s just what it sounds like so you can do it too!
Fried Egg Omelet
2 Tablespoons Butter
Milk, salt & pepper to taste
Shredded sharp cheddar cheese
Warm up a small skillet and put in 1 Tbs of butter to melt.
Scramble 1 egg with milk, salt & pepper to taste. Pour into heated skillet.
Allow to cook completely. Flip carefully and cook other side fully.
Remove finished omelet to waiting plate.
Fry your other egg(using the other Tbs of butter).
When cooked to taste, remove carefully from heat, place on top of omelet, sprinkle with cheese and fold in half.
As you see from the picture above, he is! It was a struggle to get him to stop eating so I could take a picture…
I will have to start teaching him more things to cook and see what he comes up with!
Apparently I used to like eggs. My mother laments constantly that I stopped liking eggs because one of my teachers talked about not liking them.
During my adulthood I’ve given them several chances and I really tried to like them but I think it must be a texture issue. Anyway…
My children really enjoy scrambled eggs and I make them a lot so I figured this would be a great thing to teach. Also they have watched me make them many times over the years so they already know a bit about the process.
Apparently I was correct. A lot of what they’ve watched over the years has obviously stuck with them. That showed today as we went through the process.
Just a quick rundown of how we make scrambled eggs:
– Crack 3 – 5 eggs into a small mixing bowl
– Pour in a splash of milk
– Add a dash of salt and pepper
– Put about a teaspoon of butter into a medium size skillet. Place it on your stovetop and turn the heat on medium.
– Stir/whip the eggs with a fork until thoroughly scrambled
– Once the butter is all melted and spread out in the skillet, pour the egg mixture in.
– Using a soft spatula, scrape and scoop and flip the eggs constantly in the skillet – this will continue to scramble them as they cook.
– Once they’re done to your liking, scoop them out onto your plate.
– We like to sprinkle some shredded cheddar on top.
If you are also teaching your child to cook, make sure you mention to them that the skillet is very hot.
Happy children! They helped and they have yummy eggs to eat!
No funny incidents to report this time but check back for the next installment. I’m sure we’ll have silly things happen from time to time.
