Whoever said omelets were only a breakfast food clearly didn’t know what they were talking about. I think an omelet is good at any time of the day. And this Greek omelet is so full of flavor that it will satisfy your next craving for something satisfyingly savory, salty, and delicious.
Omelets can be tricky – the whole folding thing takes practice. First off, make sure you’re using enough eggs. This recipe calls for three.
Once your pan is preheated and the olive oil has become shiny, pour the beaten eggs into the pan. Using a spatula, lift the edges of the eggs gently and let the liquid flow underneath. Continue this process until the eggs are cooked all the way through.
At that point, it’s time to add in your omelet filling. This recipe calls for diced cucumber, red onion, sun-dried tomatoes, and Kalamata olives. Don’t forget the oregano and salt and pepper! Do your best to distribute it evenly on one side of the cooked egg “tortilla.”
Once your fillings are set, it’s time to fold. Using your tool of choice (I like a spatula), gently lift the edges of the empty side of the egg tortilla and fold over. Like I said, this takes some practice to master.
The great news is this – if your fold over doesn’t work as you’d hope, don’t fear! Your omelet just turned into a scramble. Still delicious. You’re welcome 🙂
