Broccoli & Cheese Omelette

For the days you feel like you have had too many carbohydrates such as bread, cereal, oatmeal, etc. this is one of the breakfasts I will resort to. It is still filling even without toast on the side. This meal has been in my mind ever since Neopets when you could go to the Giant Omelette and get one for free. I would always end up receiving the broccoli and cheese. Ever since then, I was determined to make my own. Now, I can’t get enough.

First you will need: 2 eggs, broccoli, cheese, and avocado.

Ingredients: Broccoli, cheese, avocado, eggs
Cut about 3 (depending on size) pieces of broccoli and then strip them from their stems. You want the pieces to be fairly small so it can get covered with the egg and not be too hard or crunchy.

Chopping Broccoli

Place the small floret pieces into a microwaveable bowl and fill it with water until they are all submerged. We want to slightly cook them until they are softened.

Broccoli in Water

Microwave on high for approximately 2 minutes.

If you are very health-conscious you can grate a minimal amount or skip the whole cheese portion all together. Though, I think it really tops off the recipe.

Your broccoli should be finished, you can now drain the water that was leftover.

Draining Water

The secret is to add the cheese you just grated to the still warm broccoli so that it melts slightly.

Adding Cheese to Broccoli

Preheat the pan so that when you pour the egg mixture you can retain a shape instead of the liquid spreading all different directions.

Preheat Pan

Add as much avocado as you wish.

Finally, you can crack two eggs into the bowl.

Adding Eggs

Stir and fluff the mixture with a fork. (If you want creamier eggs, you can add milk.)

I grease my pan with coconut oil. Some people are hesitant to use coconut oil for savory foods but you can’t actually taste it.

Coconut Oil

Spread the oil across the entire pan to prevent any sticking.

Pour the omelette mixture onto the preheated skillet.

Pour Omelette Mixture

Try to keep it round or contained so it’s easier to flip. If you want some extra flavour, feel free to add some salt and pepper to taste.

Leave to Heat Up

Once you notice the egg starting to cook and solidify all around, you can give it a flip.

Starts Solidifying

This stage can make or break your omelette, be gentle! But no pressure… there’s nothing wrong with broccoli and cheese scrambled eggs.

Flip Omelette

The time on the pan varies on how you like your eggs. I don’t like my omelettes to be runny so I usually flip it once and then fold it in half to cook longer. Once I don’t spot any liquid I take it off.

Cooked Omelette

I added some orange slices and blueberries to complete my healthy breakfast. Yummm!

I really love experimenting with foods that are easy to cook but interchangeable such as omelettes, oatmeal, or smoothies.
