Views: 9, Replies: 0 » Jump to the end
|I enjoy a good omelet. Sometimes I like just a plain egg omelet and other times I like to have it loaded with tomato, onions, sausage and cheese. No matter which way I eat it, adding Calendula petals perks up the flavor.
Basic Omelet Recipe
1 Tablespoon milk
1 Tablespoon butter or oil
2 Tablespoon fresh diced Calendula petals
In a bowl add the eggs and the milk. Beat until nice and frothy.
In a small frying pan, over medium low heat melt the butter or oil.
When melted, pour the egg mixture into the pan.
As the mixture starts to cook, using a spatula, gently lift the outside edges and tilt pan to allow runny part to run to outside edge to cook.
If adding other ingredients like cheese , onions,peppers add such, add them now along with the Calendula petals.
When the eggs start setting up and not much liquid is left showing, place spatula under the egg and fold in half. Let cook a few minutes more and flip whole thing over and cook a few more minutes. I keep flipping evry few minutes and then cut through center of omelet to make sure the egg all cooked.
remove from pan onto plate and sprinkle a few more Calendula petals on top or use whole Calendula as a side garnish. Just remember to remove bottom part of plant from petals.
