Recipe from France! This wonderful tasty low-carb French Omelette for Brunch is so easy to make during the summer months, when you want to sit outside and pretend you’re at a French Bistro, enjoying a Sunday afternoon with friends. Brunch is probably my favorite meal and I think it should be served everyday with a cocktail. I love eggs and in France, eggs are like a staple food for most households. They serve them for lunch or dinner or better yet for brunch. The other thing that most of us in the United States don’t do is eat an omelette for lunch or dinner but the French do. An omelette is like having a steak, they love their eggs and so do I. This simple omelette is full of flavor but not full of vegetables, you see French people don’t really add a lot of stuff to their omelette. If anything else is made, it’s a side of something like ham, or sausage but most of the time it’s just this light fluffy omelette that reminds me of a soufflé made in under 5 minutes.
Step by Step How to Make a French Omelette for Brunch
You don’t need much to make this dish but a bowl, a fork to mix, a spoon. a pan to cook and a spatular to flip. 1. Crack the eggs and add the half and half to a bowl and mix. 2. Add the butter to the pan on medium heat until the butter melts and swirl around the pan. 3. Pour the eggs mix into the pan and lift the pan to swirl the egg mix evenly. 4. When the eggs start to bubble around the edge of the pan, lift the pan side to side to get the middle mix to the edge 5. Add a spoonful in the center when the omelette is almost done. 6. Add the chives to the center and then flip both sides to the center. Flip the omelette for about 2 minutes on low until the center is cooked.
- Dice ham into cubes and when the omelet is half cooked add the ham.
- Add brie slices in the center
- Mix the chopped chives into the eggs when mixing.
