Many of my friends know of my absolute appreciation for the comic book medium, and so many of those have variant to their covers when they get released so I felt that it would be a good time to do the same thing with a not too long ago posted recipe. I recently tossed together “the Exploding Omelet” as my title and here is the variant to that original theme. I also decided to share some of the preparation steps and visuals with you this time around. Let’s go. This recipe begins with two eggs, a couple of slices of hard salami and pepperoni, jalapeno peppers, a mushroom and a slice of American cheese.
Some of the best recipes begin with a little butter. I could not use the cooking spray because this is a no stick pan and that stuff seems to cause problems on such surfaces. These two pats of butter are thin by the way in case you are worried about a cholesterol count 🙂
Here’s those same ingredients all chopped up and ready to be tossed into the pan.
Now I toss in the eggs into the pan, I don’t bother to scramble them before I do this process. I suppose I should but I did like the end result of the first go round so assume the process will succeed yet again.
Next up I took the whole contents of the plate you just saw before and tossed it on top of the eggs and began mixing it all around in the pan with a wooden spoon. Sorry that I have no photos of this part of the process but it does not take all that long and is finished before you know it.
The end result on the plate. I cooked it for about three minutes which might have been a little long for the eggs but not for the other ingredients.
The final photo is just some added enhancement. I love cheese in my omelets so why not blanket the exploding omelet with a slice of American cheese. I also used some of my friend Pete Pardo’s Tomatillo sauce to top it off. He makes a mean sauce and it works well with this kind of concoction.
And that my fine friends in food is it. Hope you give this a whirl sometime soon and like how it turns out. I know I did (but perhaps a bit too many Jalapenos 🙂
