Omurice

Right, so instead of the regular “Foodie Friday” post, this week I decided to share this video with you.

I made this for lunch for myself this week, and it is SO YUMMY. But mine ended up looking like chunky fried rice (I epically failed at the whole “getting stuff onto the omelette” part) so I thought the original video with an amusing Ryosuke would be better (both for the recipe, the amusement, and what the food is actually supposed to look like).

NB – I halved the recipe, because I was only making it for me.

Enjoy!

Awesome Scrambled Eggs


My scrambled eggs are legend. Literally – whenever we go camping with friends or have someone stay over, if I offer the option of “my scrambled eggs”, just about everyone jumps at them (except Hubby, who just doesn’t like scrambled anything. I will convert him haha).

They’re really easy to make, and taste AWESOME.

The recipe below is for 1 person, but it’s easy to scale up.

For the record, I always use the whole egg. None of this “egg whites only” business for me, the best part of the egg is the yolk! (In my opinion). If you only use whites, you may need a little extra white.

Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • 2tbsp milk
  • 2 cubes frozen spinach
  • 3 slices ham, thinly sliced
  • 1tbsp spring onion, finely sliced
  • 2tbsp grated cheese (I generally use pizza mix cheese, because it melts nicely)

Method

  1. Put eggs & milk into a bowl and mix up. Season with pepper, if desired (don’t add salt, the other ingredients are a bit salty in flavour so add the salt at the end)
  2. Preheat a small nonstick pan over med-high heat, then add ham and spinach (I defrost the cubes in the microwave first, but that step is not strictly necessary. They will defrost in the pan, I’m just too impatient to wait).
  3. Once the ham and spinach are heated through, add spring onions. Stir through, then add egg mix.
  4. Keep an eye on the eggs, stirring a bit to scramble the eggs. Once the eggs are about 3/4 cooked, add the cheese and stir through.
  5. Serve 🙂

Variations

Add whatever veges you want – this is the base recipe, the things that ALWAYS go into this. Sometimes I’ll add mushrooms, tomatoes, capsicum, whatever I’ve got in the fridge.

You can swap out the ham for bacon if that’s what you have – in our house, we always have ham because that’s what Hubby has on his sandwiches, but we only have bacon if I can buy it on special.

Experiment with seasonings – add some hot sauce or chilly flakes if you like spice, or a bit of curry powder for something different.
