Snow Day for Adults
Here's the recipe and instructions to this omelet but please note, omelets are diverse. You can put anything you want (that's edible) in an omelet. This is what I put in ours for today:
3 corn tortillas, sliced into bits & pieces, whichever way you like
1 tbsp. pure butter
4 eggs, whisked until it very bubbly (by hand about 5 minutes or 3 minutes with mixer - the more you whisk, the fluffier the omelet)
1 cup cooked breakfast sausage, chopped
1 cup Monterrey Jack/Colby cheese, freshly grated
Kosher Salt & Pepper
1/4 cup fresh chives, diced
Heat oil in a hot 10" skillet
Cook tortilla pieces until browned and slightly crispy, remove from pan a set aside.
Turn heat down to low and melt butter, spread around pan.
Add egg and cook until edges are soft yet cooked and the egg mixture is semi cooked all the way.
Sprinkle on salt & pepper.
Sprinkle tortilla pieces, cooked sausage and 1/2 the chives evenly over egg mixture.
Add the cheese and distribute evenly. Cover and cook for about 5-7 more minutes or until the egg mixture is cooked all the way.
With a rubber spatula (because of it's flexibility), gently push it under half of the omelet, being careful not to tear it (if you do, it's okay - practice makes perfect) and fold over until it takes the shape of a half moon. Cook for another 30 seconds until the cheese melts. Sprinkle with the rest of the chives.
Remember: You can put almost anything from sliced tomatoes, spinach, mushrooms, salsa, yesterday's leftovers into an omelet. Be creative, the possibilities are endless!
Wherever you are, makes lots of memories on these snow days, even if it's just you and your hubby. Enjoy your weekend, and remember to savor every moment!
