There are those types of people that can't imagine to put salt on any food (like my friend Stephanie ;) and then there is the category of people who enjoy squeezing lemon juice on all there dishes even egg omelets; and  I am one of them ;) I truly enjoy my zesty lemon herb omelet, perfect to live'n up your breakfast or brunch and great with a glass of iced water with some sprigs of mint. what I like about it aside from it's simplicity is that it's different and fresh tasting. Here is how you make it...

INGREDIENTS

  • 3 eggs (2 yolks and 3 whites)
  • 1 tsp of butter or Pam as alternative
  • 1 tbsp of milk
  • 1/4 cup of grated mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 of lemon
  • 1 handful of chopped parsley
  • Sea salt and ground pepper to taste
  • Sliced tomatoes, to garnish

DIRECTIONS


  1. In a T-Fal frying pan  melt your butter (or heat Pam) on a medium flame to then reduce to medium-low.
  2. In a mixing bowl, break your eggs, ad your milk, chopped parsley, salt, pepper and mix thoroughly.
  3. Pour the mixture in the pan
  4. Once the omelet has secured its shape approximately 3-4 minutes, drizzle your grated cheese in the center and fold in each side of the omelet towards the center.
  5. Flip the omelet onto the other side for 1-2 minutes and then place onto a plate.
  6. Drizzle with lemon juice and voila, you have your zesty omelet.. umm!
