One Sunday morning, my husband and I made breakfast together, consisting of potatoes and an omelette. My husband made the potatoes. He got them from a farmer’s market near his work and they were various colors. He chopped them into about 1-inch cubes, added salt and other spices and baked them at 400 degrees for about 40 minutes until done. They were delicious.
I made a spinach omelette and it was also delicious. For those that don’t know me, I am not the biggest fan of eggs. In fact, I was slightly traumatized by eggs as a young child. When I was 4 years old, i was forced to eat hard boiled eggs that they were serving as a snack in pre-school. I had to stay and eat my eggs while everyone else was playing. I came home from school and said “I’m never going to school again!” which is very unlike me because I love learning.
After that, I never really liked eggs. In fact, growing up, the smell made me nauseous most times I smelled them being cooked. As an adult, I’m committed to trying almost anything, if only a small bite. So, I’ve been trying eggs, but they still don’t really appeal to me. However, I’ve been on a healthy eating kick and eggs provide an excellent source of protein, so I’m determined to find a way to like them! Granted, the omelette is probably more spinach than omelette, but at least I can tolerate being in the same room with it and eating it!
To make the omelette, I took out a package of frozen spinach the night before and let it thaw in the fridge. I squeezed out all the water and added it to several eggs. I put in some cherry tomatoes, ginger, Spicy Mrs. Dash, and other spices. A good trick to test whether you’ve added enough salt and spices is to take a small amount of the mixture and cook it. Then you can taste that and re-season without having to have a whole omelette under-salted!
Here is the finished product:
Easy and delicious!
