Check out this spot directed, shot and edited by the lovely Anne Marie Lindemann from FSU's V89 radio station! Aren't I so fabulous and charming? That's the omelette talking, by the way. Check out the recipe below for the perfect omelette, perfect for those lazy mornings when you just can't bring yourself to get out of bed. Come on, bro it's like 2 PM. Let's make some eggs.
“Stupid Good” Sunday Morning Omelette with Home Fries
Is your ‘morning’ starting at 2 in the afternoon? When it’s up to you to make food that will last you until the next acceptable meal time, eggs and potatoes are the way to go. Don’t be intimidated by the omelette flip- if it breaks, so what! You’re only making breakfast for you (and possibly whomever is in your bed right now. Actually, you should probably tell them to go home now…).
Makes: 1 omelette and a generous portion of home fries
Cook time: 30 minutes
For the home fries:
- 1 medium yukon potato, cubed into ¼” pieces
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- ½ teaspoon smoked paprika (optional)
- Salt & pepper
For the omelette:
- 1 tablespoon butter
- ¼ cup onion, sliced into half-moons
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1 handful fresh spinach
- 2 eggs
- 1 tablespoon water
- Salt & pepper
- Fresh tomatoes, diced (optional)
- Shredded cheddar cheese (optional)
- Parsley, for garnish (optional)
- In a medium skillet over medium heat, toss potatoes in olive oil and seasonings. Let cook, stirring occasionally while assembling your omelette, for 20 minutes. Your potatoes are ready when they are fork-tender and browned on the edges.
- Melt butter in a saute pan over medium-low heat and cook onions until translucent and soft, about 5 minutes. Add garlic, spinach, salt and pepper- cook until spinach has wilted. Remove spinach and onions from pan.
- In a cup, beat eggs and water until mixture is completely incorporated. Pour egg mixture into the pan. With a spatula, push the cooked outer egg into the middle, tipping the pan to fill up the empty spot. Repeat until you have no more runny egg. Place spinach and onions onto one half of the circle. Add tomatoes, if desired. Flip the empty omelette side over the spinach and onions. Top with cheese and cover with lid to melt and cook through, about 5 minutes.
- Plate omelette with home fries and garnish with parsley or, my favorite, sriracha and ketchup!
