Just some cheese, an egg and a non-stick pan
You know sometimes how two ingredients go so well with each other that you can't stop using both all the time?
It's like they're so inseperable and so happily married that a divorce is impossible!
Before you think me crazy, talking about food this way, just bear with me ya?
I suppose you'd understand when I tell you about said ingredients.
Or you'd also have guessed it by now, due to the photos!
All right, I'll just admit that I am a sucker for cheese - melted cheese at that. And what gets me going in the mornings is a cheese omelette sandwich:
With the cheese warm and oozing.
Now, I'm not sure how you cook your cheese omelette (i suppose everyone has their own way) but recently I discovered the beauty of a very good non-stick pan and found that there's an easier way to cook cheese omelette.
The way I do it is as such:
I beat the eggs and pour it into a non-stick pan and let it cook a while, making sure the egg spreads evenly around the pan.
Then I'll place a slice of cheese right smack in the middle, allowing it to melt a little, then folding the omelette around it via the 4 sides. Think of it as folding a present. haha. I know it sounds really simple, but hey it's fun! It's like a cheese parcel. Yummy... The great thing is that the cheese is safely contained in the egg and doesn't drip or ooze out, until you bite it:
Check out all that cheese! Mmmmm.... Every bite was a reward in itself because of the soft, warm cheese.
The amazing thing is that I used NO oil whatsoever when cooking the omelette.
How's that possible? A non-stick pan of course but not just any non-stick pan. It just had to be WMF's non-stick pan:
Those are water droplets I sprinkled to show you how smooth and 'non-stick' the surface is. I've used other non-stick pans and none has proven to be as amazing as the WMF.
Dad bought this pan a few months ago at an Isetan sale and he got it at a much cheaper price. Forgot how much though. About $60+ I think? The original price was supposedly more than $100.
Since he bought this (and two other pans/wok), I've been using it to cook my omelettes. So thanks to this non-stick pan, I am able to have an oil-less omelette! Haha... not that it makes it less fattening (cheese is quite rich) but who cares! Eat in moderation and everything will be fine.
I really love making breakfasts. It's just the start of the day and I know I want to feed myself (and others) well. But it's quite hard too because that means I have to rack my brains to think of what to eat in the morning and usually no one has the energy to think so much the moment they get outta bed. But I guess I'm quite a morning person. I've grown accustomed to it. Okie dokie, I gotta run.... I've to be in school soon! Tataz.... and Happy Friday! The weekend is here again! Yippie! :)
