I love eggs.  My favourite eggs are Farmer Brown’s organic pastured eggs, which I get from Feather and Bone.

I whip these omelettes up at least a couple of times per week.

For myself, I make a kale, mushroom and avocado omelette.   For my partner, I make a baby spinach, bacon and avocado omelette.  Below is the recipe to make both of these.

Ingredients

  • 4 pastured, organic eggs
  • Splash of water
  • Salt, pepper and chill flakes
  • 1 rasher of pastured nitrate-free bacon
  • Handful baby spinach leaves
  • Handful kale, shredded
  • ½ avocado
  • Handful mushrooms, sliced
  • Thyme leaves
  • Ghee, butter or coconut oil for frying

Method

  • Crack eggs into a bowl and add a splash of water. Whisk using a fork or balloon whisk. Add salt, pepper and chilli flakes to taste.
  • Meanwhile, heat your choice of fat in a saucepan and cook bacon until crisp.
  • Remove bacon and use remaining pan fat to sauté mushrooms for 3 minutes until browned, adding thyme to the pan near the end of cooking. Remove and set aside.
  • Add oil or butter to pan and sauté kale for 2 minutes, or until cooked to your liking. Remove and set aside.
  • Heat an omelette pan over medium heat and add coat with your choice of fat. Add half of the whisked eggs to the pan and swirl around to coat the base of the pan evenly with egg. Cook for 2-3 minutes, until egg mix sets and starts to come away from the sides of the pan.
  • Add fresh spinach, bacon, then ¼ of the avocado to half of the omelette. Using a spatula, fold the other half of the omelette over the filling ingredients. Slide off the pan onto a plate and serve immediately.
  • Add the remaining half of the whisked eggs mix to the pan, and repeat process for making omelette. Add kale, mushrooms, and remaining avocado to one half, fold over and enjoy!

Experiment with different flavours for the omelettes.  One of my favourite combinations is asparagus, tomato and goat’s cheese.  My partner loves chorizo, spinach, red capsicum and onion and good old ham, tasty cheese and tomato.

I’d love to hear your favourite omelette combinations! If you would like some more breakky inspiration, head over to my website and click on the recipes tab.
