“I’d like an omelette named after me.” - Rufus Sewell
When I lived in Europe I often had this omelette for breakfast in the Winter as it was a good start for the cold day ahead and tided me over till the substantial lunch I used to have. Then dinner was very light, some yoghurt or fruit.
3 eggs
60 g (more or less) of butter
3/4 of a cup of condensed milk
2 tablespoonfuls of water
Salt, pepper
Pinch of curry powder (optional)
Pinch of nutmeg
Dill, oregano, mixed herbs to taste
Several slices of camembert cheese at room temperature
A slice or two of brown bread
Beat the eggs with the milk, water, herbs and spices.  Melt the butter in a flat omelette skillet and heat until it is sizzling and turning brown.  Fry both sides of the bread in the butter until golden. Put the bread on a plate and add some more butter to the pan if there is not enough there to cook the omelette.
Cook the egg mixture well in the pan, turning over once.  Put the cheese on the surface of the omelette and heat gently to melt it (can be done as a last step in the microwave oven directly in the serving dish).  Put the omelette on top of the fried bread and garnish with a sprig of parsley.

  1. Sounds wonderful and easy to make. Will try!

  2. Of all the cheeses that can be put in omelettes, camambert goos up in the most satisfactory way :) I only do a leisurely brunch once a week (each Sunday) but it is the highlight of my week.

    What do you think of the idea of placing the omelette on half a poppyseed bagel, instead of on brown bread?

  3. I love the presentation and I'm sure it taste yum!!!

    Thanks for joining Food Trip Friday
