Finally getting back on track with the cooking-through challenge, I decided to try my hand at an omelet. Not just any omelet but a french omelet aux fines herbes found on page 259 of the Betty Crocker Picture Cookbook.
I never attempted making an omelet before because it holds a bit of an intimidation factor for me. I was amazed to find out it is not complicated at all!
This is how my first omelet ever turned out.
I toasted some Brioche on the side.
Not bad for a first try. Now the recipe for “aux fines herbes” I was drawn to as I love anything french. It seemed quite glamorous, even for an omelet.
I honestly did not quite care for the taste. It was a big too “herby” for my liking, if there is such a thing. I even admit to adding barbecue sauce to it. (blushing)
The good thing is that I tried something new. Won’t Happily Mr. be surprised when I whip up a ham and cheese omelet for him this weekend!
Keep or Toss?: I will definitely keep making omelets from now on. In fact the picture instructions for the french omelet key recipe were easy to follow. I can’t believe I was so scared to make them before!! As for the Aux Fines Herbes part? Sadly, I must toss. It just wasn’t to my liking. Maybe if I added a bit of cheese to it, it would have been better. Next time!
