Can I Get A Real Omelet

What am I going to have for breakfast? I’ll have an omelet. An omelet? The only way I can make an omelet is a scrambled egg omelet-yes it looks like scrambled eggs.

I decided to try to make a folded over omelet looking omelet. As I cooked the beef breakfast sausage, onion, mushrooms and spinach in a non-stick skillet I contemplated the success of this endeavor. I spread the filling evenly in the skillet and poured the eggs over it with great care. The final step was spreading the grated cheese.

I mimicked what I’ve seen done time and again in restaurants and on TV but was afraid to try until now. Carefully moving the cooked egg aside while tilting the pan to cook the remaining egg was a little scary but I got it right.

An experienced cook would flip the omelet in the air to the opposite side but I’m not there yet. I used two spatulas that worked out well. I’m glad it didn’t break apart. The non-stick skillet made each step easy. I successfully slid the omelet onto a plate and it was a beautiful sight to behold. It tasted as good as it looked.

Why do I entertain that little voice whispering in my ear? I don’t know but I’m glad I decided to move forward with making the omelet.

It’s exciting to conquer a fear I’ve had for years. I’m looking forward to my next conquest.

What are you gearing up to conquer in your life?

  1. Don’t worry about perfection. I find nearly everything turns out edible, even if it doesn’t look quite right or it tastes like it needs a little something extra. That just means next time it will turn out a little better šŸ™‚

  2. Emma,

    Conquering fears…oh yes, isn’t that what our walk with Jesus does….we learn to pray, to step out in faith, and obey Him. No greater joy to experience His creative encouragement and power helping us in the kitchen or wherever He directs us.
    Thanks for sharing,
