Sunday Brunch

I know it is the middle of the week and is early to be discussing weekend breakfast, but this is the first time in a while, I have had chance to post. However I made this omelette/frittata a couple of weeks ago and have been wanted to share it with you since.

I love getting up early sometimes on Sunday morning to have the house myself, have a cup of coffee, watch TV, do a little housework perhaps and enjoy breakfast in peace by myself. The other Sunday, peace and tranquilly was achieved and I was able to make my favourite omelette/frittata (not quite sure which one it is, please decide for yourself after reading the recipe.)

Spicy Sunday Morning Omelette/Frittata

Ingredients

  • Half an onion, chopped finely
  • 1 medium sized chili, chopped finely (with or with seeds, it depends on how hot you like it!)
  • 2 eggs
  • Ham, chopped into squares
  • Chorizo slices (I just used the ones from the supermarket – they are OK for this and pizza toppings – not much else)
  • Garlic and Herb cheese, broken up into rough chunks (I used Boursin but it’s up to you)
  • Cheddar Cheese, grated (my favourite is Cathedral City- however I have a sample of Kerry Low Low Cheese to try now so expect a post about this soon)
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Dried mixed herbs (any you like really. I used Italian mixed herbs)
  • Olive Oil

Method

  1. In a frying pan, put in a glug of olive oil and fry the onion, chili and a small pinch of salt until softened.
  2. Meanwhile, break the eggs into a jug or small bowl, whisk lightly and add the dried herbs and some salt and pepper.
  3. Pour into the frying pan with the onion and chili and turn heat down to the lowest setting. Allow to cook until the eggs are set on the bottom
  4. Add your toppings. Chorizo and ham first, garlic and herb cheese and top with grated cheddar.
  5. Put under a preheated grill until cheese has melted and bubbling. I enjoy leaving the garlic and herb cheese in chunks, as it doesn’t melt completely then as it can be quite thin and runny once melted. Then serve and enjoy with a glass of orange juice.

That’s it for now. Short post this time but I will be back with another post soon, either involving cheese or a joint post with my friend Marie about cooking for a crowd.

Happy Cooking! :-)

  1. I meant to leave a message before Christmas to say I tried this and it was lovely!!! I forgot to get the Boursin, but even without it was yum!

    I might brave the blizzard outside and nip to the Coop for ingredients to make it for Sunday brunch again tomorrow!
