Hobbiton Omelet

I keep hearing that making an omelet is one of those first things you learn in chef school. I also remember watching Julia Child do an episode featuring an entire omelet buffet. I think we take for granted what is involved in making an awesome omelet. I love how there are so many approaches to the omelet as well. For this particular hardcore hobbit recipe I decided to blend the french and denver styles. This is a filled omelet but it also has some of the filling mixed in with the eggs. In the game a hobbiton omelet is made with green onion, egg, and sharp cheese. Making a light omelet does not always have to be all about the egg whites. If you enjoy an egg white omelet like I do then go for it! If its one of those days where you need a bit of yolk to get you going then here is another option to try to keep it healthy.

  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 green onion, sliced
  • 32 grams light cheddar cheese, shredded
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Scramble the eggs together. Add half of the green onion to the eggs. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Cook on medium heat until the bottom side is firm. Flip the omelet.
  3. Cover one side of the omelet with cheese and 1 tbl of green onion. Fold the omelet when the eggs are firm.
  4. Serve on a plate and garnish with remaining green onion.

This makes one omelet and is stuffed with cheese! The omelet contains 215 calories, 12 grams of fat, and .4 grams of fibre. A nice hearty breakfast for any hobbit feeling a need to indulge without bulge.
