I’m in need of some inspiration for fillings.Posted 4 years ago
Do you put the selected combo on half the egg and flip the other half over creating a semi circle type ‘sandwich’ Or scatter liberally all over and finish beneath the grill?
I appear always to default to bacon,cheese,tomato and spinach. (on half and flipped over)cbmotorsportMember
Umm. Fried peppers, onions, tomato, chilli and cheese works well.
I always flop over, but make sure that the egg on the top is nice and runny, so you get a creamy texture, not rubbery.
Also like to make a spanish tortilla from time to time, with sliced potatoes. Yum.Posted 4 years agoMary HingeMember
Bizarrely, both working at home today, wifey just asked what I fancied for lunch, I’d seen the eggs so said omelette!
All of the above sound good. Current trend is filling on half, leave it runny and flip half over, but I’m not fussed.
Or leave it plain and have it in a sandwich 🙂
However, we are both out tomorrow, so we are having pancakes for lunch today instead as we won’t get time tomorrow 🙂Posted 4 years agostumpy01Member
Pretty rubbish at flipping an omlette, or even halving it, so tend to cook half and then finish under the grill.
I think I load it with too much filling, so it doesn’t like to be moved.
I normally go for bacon/ham, cherry tomatoes, mushroom and cheese.Posted 4 years ago
Cheese and onion goes well.
I’ve done tuna & spring onion too, which I like but is more of a ‘cook whatever’s in the cupboard’ type affair.
A sweet option:
Cinnamon in the mixture.
Raisins, both in the mixture and in the middle of the half-moon.
Coarsely crushed walnuts.
With regard to flipping: I tend to get a spatula, or something similar underneath and then gradually turn the pan more than the omelette until in a position where I can turn the whole lot back up the right way safely.Posted 4 years ago
