Gluten Free Mothers Day Idea
Ingredients (for one omelette):
- 3 eggs
- garnishes – herbs, garlic, sauteed onions or mushrooms, a little cheese, whatever you want
- olive oil or butter for cooking
- salt and pepper
1. Crack the eggs into a bowl and beat them up a bit with a fork and stir in the garnishes (except for cheese).
2. Heat a pan on med-high to high heat, and add in a little olive oil or butter (if butter, let it melt) and spread it around to coat the pan.
3. Add the eggs, whisking them (or stirring vigorously with a heat-proof spatula if using a non-stick) for a few seconds, so that as the “curd” forms the liquid on top will move to the bottom to cook. Add salt/pepper now (Ramsay says in the video above adding salt too early causes the eggs to gray, so I add the salt now) and grated cheese if desired.
4. Let it set for a bit, and then loosen it from the pan and start to fold it over, and roll it from the pan onto your plate. All in all it probably takes more time to heat up the pan that it does to actually cook the omelette.
