Not So Boring Breakfast: Breakfast for One

Cook Meter: Intermediate (sometimes the flipping is hard!)
Cost Meter:  $$

Nick works shiftwork , which means that sometimes on a Sunday morning, I am home alone. Fortunately there is one meal that I cook especially when I am alone.


I know it's probably possible but I have never been capable of making more than one omelette at a time. For starters, I only have one large frypan. So when cooking omelettes for multiple people, it means dishing them up one. This means that by the time I sit down to have mine everyone else has already finished.

When you are alone however, you get to eat that omelette as soon as you have cooked it. It's all about you. So relax and enjoy.

Ingredients (for one omelette only)

3 eggs
2 tbsp milk
1/4 red onion
50g sliced smoked salmon
Feta (as much or little and you like)
Salt and Pepper to taste


1. Heat a small frypan with a little butter and fry the sliced red onion until soft and brown. Once done put aside.

2. In a bowl whisk the eggs, milk, salt and pepper. Remember to go a little easy on the salt as the feta will be salty enough.

3. Put a large frypan onto a medium heat and melt butter so that it thinly covers the bottom of the frypan.

4. Cut up your salmon and feta.

5. Once heated add your egg mixture and rotate the pan to make sure it is spread evenly. When it's about halfway cooked, run your egg slice around the edge of the omelette until you can figure out which half will flip over the easiest.

6. Place your ingredients on the other half and then fold the empty half of the omelette onto itself.

7. Cook until feta has melted and the omelette is a golden colour.

8. Serve with toast and a nice pot of coffee.
