Skinny Omelette recipe

Introduction

A make over to the traditional omelette recipe. No more huge bulging envelopes of egg oozing steady rivers of melted cheese. A bit of pesto makes this a fantastic, light and delicious recipe.

Ingredients

    2 large (preferably organic) eggs
    a tiny pinch of fine grain sea salt
    a few tablespoons of chopped chives
    a dollop of pesto
    a bit of goat cheese or feta
    a small handful of mixed salad greens

Directions

Use a fork to beat the eggs and salt in a small bowl. Beat well, until the eggs are mostly uniform in color - they seem to run around the pan more evenly when there aren't huge patches of yolk vs. whites.
In your largest non-stick skillet over medium heat (this is one of the few occasions I actually use non-stick) pour the egg mixture and give it a good swirl so that they spread out thinly across the entire pan. Alternately, you can use a crepe pan or crepe maker - this works beautifully as well. Sprinkle the eggs with some of the chives and let them set, this happens quickly depending on the heat of your pan - 15 seconds to one minute. Run a spatula underneath the omelette and slide it out of the pan (flat) onto a countertop, large cutting board or Silpat-line cookie sheet. Do this with confidence (or practice). Spread the pesto across the surface of the omelette (if you have a thick pesto, thin it a bit with water to make it easily spreadable), and then sprinkle with the cheese and salad greens. Starting with one end, roll the omelette away from you. Cut in half on a deep diagonal. Season with a bit more salt if needed and serve garnished with a few chopped chives.
