Karina’s Eggcellent Spanish Chorizo, Basil and Parmesan Omelette!
Fancy a flavour explosion? Then look no further. To enjoy Karina’s Eggcellent Omelette, you will need to grab your favourite breakfast drink, a comfortable chair and perhaps read up on some of my recipes 🙂
– Two Large Eggs (free range are best)
– Cracked Black Pepper
– 1 tablespoon of Olive Oil (I like to use garlic infused olive oil for maximum flavour)
– 1 small handful of finely grated Parmesan Cheese (you can use finely grated Cheddar Cheese if you prefer a less sharp flavour)
– 1/4 of one Spanish Chorizo, skin removed and sliced thinly.
– 1/2 of 1 handful of Fresh Basil Leaves, torn.
N.B – You can make your own garlic olive oil, by dry roasting garlic cloves either in a pan, or in the oven until it’s golden brown (it should only take a few minutes). Allow the roasted garlic to cool slightly, then place the roasted garlic into a jar of olive oil to infuse. Keep it in the olive oil for about one week, then fetch the garlic out with a long skewer. You can then use this beautiful garlic oil in any of your favourite recipes which calls for a hint of garlic. Enjoy the flavour sensation!
Add your Spanish Chorizo to the pan, along with your olive oil. Fry over a high heat until the bottom side is crispy and golden brown. Flip your Spanish Chorizo to allow the other side to turn golden brown. When both sides of your Spanish Chorizo are crispy and golden brown, turn the heat down to a low heat.
Crack your eggs into a bowl, with a pinch of pepper, then beat well with a fork until combined. Add your eggs to the pan, along with your Spanish Chorizo. Wobble your pan with your eggs, until the bottom surface of your pan is coated in egg.
Now, pop your favourite wholemeal or grain bread into your toaster. Boil the kettle to get your favourite cup of tea or coffee going.
Wait about 1-2 minutes, or until you see the eggs are slightly cooked. Grate your parmesan cheese on top of your eggs. You don’t need to wait for the cheese to cook, since it would have already melted into your eggs slightly. Flip one side of your omelet onto the other, by using a spatula.
Compiling the Beauty:
Turn the heat to off, then you should be able to slide your silky, flavourful omelet onto your plate. Cut your toast to your liking. Pour out your favourite cup of tea, coffee or whatever you like. Relax and enjoy your beautiful omelette!
Enjoy this wonderful breakfast!
