Omelette Pomme et Fromage (Apple Cheese Omelet) is a luxurious way to start the day. Incredible fluffy creamy eggs meets caramelized apple, melted gooey Italian Asiago cheese combined with just a tease of Gorgonzola, and some chopped green onion for that sweet earthy spice. One word AMAZING!
- 2 free range organic chicken eggs
- 1 oz of half and half cream
- pinch of fine sea salt
- crackling of fresh ground black pepper
- 1 tsp vegetable oil
- Pat of butter
- 1 honey crisp apple cored and sliced
- Tablespoon peanut oil
- Pat of butter
- A few drop maple syrup
- 1/4 cup grated Italian Asiago cheese
- 1/8 cup of broken up Gorgonzola
- 1 green onion stalk chopped
- Pinch of grated Asiago
- Sprinkling of chopped green onion
- I a small bowl whisk egg, half & half cream, salt and pepper
- In a cast iron pan heat up oil and butter add apples and saute for about 3 minutes a side or until golden brown and crispy on the edges. Take pan off heat and set aside.
- In a 6 inch non-stick pan heat up oil and butter on low to med heat.
- When butter is melted pour in the egg mixture and grab handle of pan and tilt/ rotate to get eggs to the edges of the pan.
- Place back on heat and cook for about 1 minute covered then take off heat and place some of the cheese mixture, sauteed apple, some more cheese and then the chopped green onion.
- Put back on low heat and using a rubber spatula fold outside edges into the middle, tip the pan a bit to help you. Also make sure to overlap so the omelette stays together via melted cheese.
- Take off heat sprinkle with grated Asiago and some chopped chives cover and set aside for about 2 minutes.
- Slide omelette out of pan and into a plate.
- Serve with toast and jam and beverage of choice.
- Do one egg at a time. This will insure evenly sized omelettes.
- Keep the heat low and stay attentive to the cooking. I use my spatula to lift the edge so I can see the bottom of the omelette to see how it is cooking.
- Have all you ingredients ready before starting the cooking process.
- Above all else have fun. If the omelette flops make it a scramble.
- remember if you don’t succeed the first time, try and try again!
