Omelettes are a keto diet staple food. They are a perfect food for someone doing the keto diet on a budget. This omelette recipe is so tasty and filling, you are going to love it! It's a great low carb breakfast idea or for any low carb keto diet meal! 

Weekends call for delicious brunches. I have a nice bunch of basil in my garden that needed to be picked and some nice beautiful jalapenos ready to harvest too.  Emmi sent me some of their Cave-Aged Le GruyΓ©re try so I decided to add a bit of this rich nutty flavored cheese that pairs perfectly with the fresh green flavors. Add some garlic and farm fresh eggs to make a delicious breakfast or brunch meal.
An omelet is also a tasty quick dinner too that doesn't taste like a quick dinner.
I like to make one big omelet slice it and serve it on a platter so everyone can choose the size they would like to eat.

Fresh Basil & Jalapeno Omelete Recipe 

Serves 4

  • 6 eggs

  • 1/4 cup cream

  • gruyΓ©re cheese

  • 1 clove garlic

  • small bunch of fresh basil

  • 1 fresh jalapeno

  • salt and black pepper to taste

  • tablespoon butter

There are two techniques used in making a creamy perfectly cooked omelette. First is whipping the cream and eggs together. Crush and mice the garlic, chop the jalapeno into small pieces, add salt and pepper to taste and whip into eggs. 

Add butter to a medium size frying pan. Heat on medium heat. Add eggs mixture to pan.

The second technique is to allow the eggs to cook on the bottom they pull the edges into the center with a wooden spoon allowing the uncooked eggs to fill in the sides and cook. Repeat this until all the eggs are almost cooked. At this point add the GruyΓ©re cheese. You can either slice it into thin slices or grate it. Then fold the omelette in half and cook just until the cheese is melted. 

With these two techniques you will end up with a cream delicious center and perfectly cooked eggs that aren't dry. 

Slice and garish with a sprig of fresh basil and slices of fresh jalapeno.  

Enjoy!

Quick Pickled Red Onion Recipes

Pickled Red Onion Recipe

Making red pickled onions are so easy to make and are one of my favorite things to top salads, wraps and a  good charcuterie board.

Pickled onions are popping up topping burgers and salads at all the trendy restaurants. They are something our grandmothers use to make. I don't really know why they ever fell out of popularity in food because they are soo flavory and easy to make.
I loved picking out the pearl pickled onions out of my grandma's mustard pickles. I promise to post the mustard pickle recipe sometime soon because anyone who makes a roast should have some mustard pickles to add as a relish.

I love using my vintage ball canning jar with the glass lid and clamp on it to make pickled onions.

Peel your onions. Slice your onion into thin slices.  Add to a jar of vinegar. All to pickle in the refrigerator for about 2 days then they will be ready to top your hamburger, salad or add to your charcuterie board.

Enjoy!
