Who loves cooking breakfast? Or maybe even the idea of cooking breakfast? Well, if you are all about waking up and heading straight into the kitchen, why not try out this Mushroom & Parmesan Omelette. A great way to start out a busy day or a lazy Sunday.

Mushroom & Parmesan Omelette

When it comes to breakfast, I am generally quite lazy.  I really love the idea of leisurely breakfasts, but that doesn’t seem to be my reality.  But every now and again, I get in the mood to break out the feasting at 9:00 am.  No a regular occurrence I must admit.  But every now and again I do make an omelette like this one or my Red Pepper Leek & Mozzarella Omelette.

I end up sticking to the same ol’ stuff, pancakes, waffles, crepes.  Um, there seems to be a theme going on there.  Yes, it’s called carbs.  That’s the kind of stuff the kids like, so I always verge on easy pleasing food to make life easier.  If it were up to me an my pallet, I would be having more stuff like this. That being said, they do love my Bell Pepper & Egg Breakfast Muffins.

Since I am the only person in the house that likes omelettes, I hardly ever make them.  Considering everyone loves eggs, I am baffled at this.  I have been told over and over again, it’s the texture.  Ok, got it. 

Every now again though, I do treat myself and this time around it was an omelette on a lazy Sunday morning.

A bit about the omelette

  • I find it easier to cook omelettes in non stick pans.  If you have one, I suggest you use it.  I always run a rubber spatula around the edges of the pan while it’s cooking.  In fact, the spatula I use is silicone and I love it!  I have three of them from Pampered Chef and my kitchen would not be complete without them.  In any case, running a spatula around the rim helps prevent it sticking to the bottom of the pan.  If you notice it sticking, reduce the heat and add a little bit more butter. 
  • This omelette is an open faced as opposed to the folded type.  If you prefer it done that way, you could just as easily fold it over.
  • The pan used for this omelette was an 8 inch size.  If you use a bigger pan the omelette will be thinner and cook much faster. 

That pretty much sums it up as it’s easy and straightforward.
