Not your average omelettes
To me, there is nothing better than waking up late (er) on a Saturday morning and cooking a big breakfast for myself and my husband. Some eggs, toast, home fries, pancakes, bacon, and all the other fixings. Taking my time, prepping, cooking, enjoying. And then relaxing watching morning television and drinking coffee. To me this is the life. This is one routine that hasn't changed since moving to Saudi Arabia. The weekends here are Fridays and Saturdays. My husband has to work most Fridays and although he goes in a little later, we still don't get that relaxing quality time together. Saturday mornings are the best day for us. Some mornings he will assist but most of the time he continues snuggling with our little one until breakfast is ready.
Over the last two weeks I discovered what people call the "sweet omelette." This is one amazing omelette and I have seen so many different variations. I made this last weekend and this weekend and Oh My Goodness, this is a keeper. You can find the first one I made under Chocolate Omelette. I don't call it a "sweet omelette" because like most people out there, I do not add the sweetener. You just don't need it.
My first efforts came out tasting phenomenal and it was so easy. I started by whisking together three egg whites, 1/2 scoop of chocolate whey protein powder and 1 tsp cocoa powder. I poured this mixture over a small skillet and let it heat. Once it started to bubble like a regular omelette, I flipped it in half like a regular omelette. I let it sit for a minute more just be sure it was cooked. Once it was finished I sprinkled some dark chocolate chips, cinnamon, yogurt and bananas over it. I drizzled some pure maple syrup and it was devoured in less than a minute. My husband loved it and was amazed at how good the combination of foods tasted.
My second effort was yesterday. The first time I tried to keep it simple. This time was a little different. The foundation was the same, three egg whites, protein powder and cocoa powder. Once it was heating in the skillet I added sliced bananas to the middle and drizzled some honey. When bubbling, I flipped it in half. Once it was cooked I added some dark chocolate chips, sliced bananas and drizzled some peanut butter over it. This tasted absolutely amazing! Because this one was so different, I will be posting a separate recipe under Breakfast for PB Banana Omelette.
I do want to experiment and see what I can come up with but I have a feeling this PB Omelette may be my Go To omelette. I'm thinking sprinkled coconut, flaxseeds, chia seeds, peanut butter in the center orrrrr yogurt in the center. Maybe even some sliced apples and cinnamon??!!! Have any ideas? Let me know and I'll certainly try!
Give this recipe a go. Wake up on the weekend, take your time, and enjoy with your family. Serve with some fruit, whole grain toast and even some turkey bacon for a full breakfast! Comment with any questions or just to let me know how it comes out! I know the thought of mixing any chocolate or peanut butter with eggs doesn't sound that appetizing, but give it a try. I promise, this will surprise you!
Hope everyone enjoys their weekend!
