Berry Omelette
« on: 28 June 2014, 01:38:47 PM »
I bought a book this week called I Quit Sugar For Life by Sarah Wilson. She talks a lot of sense but is not particularly low carbing so I will be adapting the recipes where necessary.

This was her recipe for an alternative breakfast.

Berry Omelette

4 Eggs
1-2 tbs rice malt syrup (I used Da Vinci strawberry flavoured sugar free syrup)
1 tbs butter (I used unsalted)
1 cup (150g) mixed berries (I used strawberries & blueberries)
mascarpone or full fat plain yoghurt to serve (I used extra thick double cream)

Separate the eggs & whisk the syrup & yolks with a stick blender. In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites until thick and fluffy, then fold into the yolk & syrup mixture.

Melt the butter in a 22cm omelette pan over a low heat. Pour in the eggs & sprinkle the berries over the top. Cook over a low heat until the base is golden. Transfer the pan to your oven grill & brown very slightly. The omelette should be firm but a little creamy.

Serve with the mascarpone or yoghurt.

I made a 2 egg version for my breakfast & forgot to separate the eggs but it worked just fine. Tasted very nice but I'm not sure it will keep me feeling full for as long as a cheese one would  ;) I think it would also be nice as a dessert anytime.

I did take a photo of the piccy in the book as it looked so lovely but am having trouble getting Windows 8 to recognise my camera. Will post it later if I can  :)

I tried taking the photo with my phone instead & downloaded it to the pc but don't know how to resize it to make it small enough to post without Outlook Express. Grrr I hate Windows  :banghead:

Have you perchance got Window Live Picture  or Photo 'thing' whatever it's called?  If you could open the pic in that and resave it, you get an opportunity to resize it and caption it whilst you are doing this - used to be called Windows Picture Manager but don't think it's called that now.

You can do this without the syrup you know - whisk up the couple of eggs, add a smidge of powdered sweetener (or liquid) instead of salt, throw em in the pan, add chopped up strawbs (or fruit of your choice) when it's only just set, leave a few more secs for fruit to warm through, fold and serve.

Well of course omelettes don't 'lie' heavy on your stomach - but if you imagine you have just eaten 3 hardboiled eggs, of course - it is filling really! - just doesn't feel like it because you're used to heavier food (don't mean you partic - we all are)  But I bet your tum won't grumble about it too much.  Unless you put half a lb of cheese in an omelette of course , in which case, it will miss the extra protein.

Fruit omelette!  Glorious!  Thanks for that!

I'd also be inclined to leave out the syrup.

Looks totally Yum!  ISTR one of our T1 preggie ladies used to eat strawberry omelettes to keep her BGs in check and it worked well for her.

I have a very simple way to make a perfectly shaped omelette.
 Crack 2-3 eggs into a ziploc sandwich bag, about 1 tsp. milk, cheese and any other ingredients you want.
 Seal the bag, trying to get all the air out. Smash it with your hands to combine all the ingredients. Place the bag in a pot of boiling water for about 11-15 minutes. Open the bag and tear down the seams, place it on a plate, sprinkle some cheese on top and you have the perfect omlette!
