2 days ago, my omelette world was rocked. Since then, I have had a Julia Child omelette every day. When I am done with this post, I am going to have another.
But, the post I made two days ago, Julia Child OMELETTE - 1 Minute Til Heaven on a Fork, was incomplete. I was bemused by the number of comments I received on a simple 2 egg, little butter and some grated cheese recipe (more than usual). My very favorite was from teresa who wrote at 2:03 PM that she was going to give it a try, and then at 2:12 she wrote that it was done, and SOOO good!
I also received more than one comment wondering if you could stuff the omelette with goodies and it would still work. Inquiring minds wanted to know, so here is my followup.
Oh, you want a little more info, OK, Yes, you can stuff a Julia Child omelette with meat, cheese, veggies, what-have-you and it will still come out looking the same, and tasting wonderful. I made this the same way, HOT butter in a heavy bottom saucier pan. During the 20 second cook, I sprinkled some chopped spinach and diced rib "flap meat". Then, I just started shaking the pan ala Julia. If you missed the original post, or didn't watch the video the first time, here it is again...
I have lust in my heart for her.
And sure enough, just like Julia said, it rolled up and looked just fine... same as the un-stuffed one.
Because it has rib meat stuffing, I am adding this to my collection of rib meat leftover recipes I am calling RIBS 101. But, if you have bacon, pepperoni, ham, sausage or any of the other "standard" meats you stuff an omeltte with, feel free. Also, I used spinach because that is what I had on hand, but mushrooms, asparagus, peppers... again, any of the "standard" stuffings would work fine. Only suggestion is to keep the pieces small so that they do not interfere with the rolling process.
I would write more, but I really want another omelette!
