The Olympic Denver Omelette

My first original kitchen creation.  A bachelor’s dream dinner all in one.  Okay, maybe just one I think about even later when I’m hungry.

Gentlemen, let’s do this thing.

  • Start with a nice 10-12 inch nonstick pan.  Put just a little olive oil in it and put it on medium heat (that’s about 4-5 on most electric ranges).
  • Take 3 or 4 eggs and whip them in a bowl.  Be sure to crack them open and get them out of the shell first.  If you can’t do that, I can’t help you anymore.
  • Add a little bit of half and half and whip it with the eggs, maybe a tablespoon or so.  I don’t measure it, so it may be more than that.
  • Pour the eggs into the pan (see this is easy!).
  • Take a small piece of smoked salmon, about the size of three to four fingers (depending upon how big your fingers are of course) and cut it into small pieces, then place them on one side of the omelette.
  • Now take 1/3 to 1/2 of a small avocado and dice it (remember to take it out of the hard skin and don’t try to dice that big stone-like seed!).  Place this into the same side of the omelette as the salmon.
  • Add a little grated cheese (I prefer parmesan, and since it’s my recipe, I’ll use it!).
  • This is when I usually add a little salt and pepper.
  • Hopefully you haven’t dilly-dallied and burned up the eggs already.  If you have, it’s time to stop and go out to eat.  If not, press on!
  • Fold over the empty half onto the full side.  If you have too much stuff it won’t close, but then again, so what?  You’re still eating it by yourself, so who’s gonna care?
  • Lastly, after a couple of minutes you can either flip it over onto the other side or just serve it onto a plate.
  • Once on a plate, cover with a little green chile salsa.  I like 505 Southwestern Organic Green Chile Sauce.  You can buy whichever one you like.  If you can make your own, why are you reading my recipes?
  • Enjoy with enough water or other palate cleansing liquid to keep the green chiles from burning your taste buds so that you don’t notice the avocado goodness.

And there you have it!  My Olympic Denver Omelette.  I hope that you enjoy it as much as I did.

Organic? So are you using free-range eggs, non-moldy
cheese, etc.
I have never heard of siracha, but if it is anything like
the Beijing fast food display, jv can keep it!

You might be better off if you prepare all the fixins before you put the eggs in the pan.

This sounds delicious! It may become a bachelorette’s dream dinner as well…

p.s. You don’t really know me, but I think we have met. A long time ago. And we have a few mutual friends. Just thought I should mention how I got here…

Hey, thanks for stopping by! I’m thinking you are one the many CTK people I have met, but either way, I hope you try the omelette and love it!

Nope, not CTK, try another TLA… I *think* we met at a TLC concert in Tomball, if you were the tall guy with Mike Hon. And I’m good friends with Erika & Robb, who often mention you. “Our friend Dennis, the doctor…”

(and I’ve written down the omelette recipe. Will definitely try it and let you know the results…)
