10 Recipes To Show You Making An Omelet Is Just A Breeze

10 Recipes To Show You Making An Omelet Is Just A Breeze

Eggs are great. They’re full of nutrition and cheap; and from a culinary perspective, eggs are both simple to start off with and something which you can experiment with to create something greater.

And if eggs are great for experimentation, the omelet is an innovator’s dream. Here are 10 omelet recipes – and those are just for breakfast! An omelet is something which you can try so many things with, and yet cooking them is still so easy.

Here are ten omelet recipes which show how easy and delicious preparing a great omelet can be:

    Regular omelet

    Let’s start with the basics. At the most fundamental level, an omelet is a bunch of mixed eggs and water beaten in a bowl and grilled over a pan. But if you’ve never cooked an omelet, you would be surprised how you can mess this up. If you add too little oil, or leave the heat too high, or just leave the egg without turning it, you can have an omelet that is half overcooked and half undercooked.

    Watch over your omelet carefully, and you can have a nice, yellow omelet. But now it is time to spice things up.

      Omurice

      Omurice, to be fair, is not exactly an omelet. It is a Japanese twist on the traditional omelet, as the name comes from combining the words “rice” with “omelet.”

      With omurice, the focus comes with frying steamed rice along with vegetables, some kind of meat (I prefer chicken, though hot dogs and even bacon can work), along with a sauce generally consisting of ketchup and other ingredients together. Then you fry a plain egg omelet and layer it over the rice.

      Omurice can be pretty sweet, especially since ketchup is used both in the rice and is normally poured over the egg. But it is a great recipe for those aiming for something innovative.

        Spanish potato omelet

        It would be a crime to talk about great omelet recipes without referring to this tradition. This omelet, often known as tortillas de patatas, consists of nothing more than some onions, potatoes and eggs. The texture of softened potatoes and onions works extremely well with creamy, well-beaten eggs. But make sure to simmer or stew the vegetables first before combining them with the eggs, or you will face the unpleasant scenario of eating half-cooked potatoes.

          Bacon Omelet Salsa

          Rolling up an egg omelet can seem to be pretty difficult, and I will note I messed up a few times when I started doing so. This is especially so when you are frying an omelet and have to do the roll when the eggs are cooked, but still kind of soft.

          But baking is different, and this bacon omelet salsa can be a great way to roll up your omelet. And there is nothing in this world that cannot be improved with bacon.

            Chickpea Omelet

            They say you can’t make an omelet without breaking a few eggs, but you can make an eggless omelet. This omelet, made with chickpea flour, almost resembles a savory pancake. While the recipe calls to place tomatoes or spinach atop this omelet, any vegetable which will do to improve its flavor can be used.

              Ultimate healthy omelet

              Eggs have an odd reputation as an unhealthy food, but they absolutely are. And if you can make an omelet with a lot of vegetables, it is a great way to start off your day and lose weight. This vegetable omelet here is a great example, especially because it contains zero carbs but has loads of nutrients and antioxidants to give you energy to start up your day.

                Egg white omelet

                If you are still concerned about the health effects of consuming eggs, then you can make an omelet with just eggs whites and without the yolk. Egg whites are some of the best sources of protein out there. While you can buy egg whites directly in specialized stores, your best course of action is to just separate the egg whites from the yolk like this.

                From there, you can make a vegetable omelet like the one above to keep yourself healthy. But egg whites are just as flexible in the kitchen as regular eggs, and can be used for all sorts of things. Just don’t eat them raw.

                8166988803_2c69dbd819_z

                  Sweet fruit omelet

                  Most omelets are savoury, filled up with meats and vegetables of some kind. But just like crepes or pancakes, it is possible to make a sweet omelet with sugar, honey, and various fruits.

                  Advertising

                  This recipe recommends mixing your eggs with sugar and water before putting it on the grill, and it will certainly sweeten it up. More than that, it will make them as fluffy as the softest bed, if you like them like that. But I would also note that when you’re making an omelet, you should not cook your fruits with it like you would vegetables. Instead, spoon sliced bananas, strawberries, or other fruits over the omelet after you’re done, along with whatever toppings you like.

                  5718057213_db7906b49f_z

                    Omelet in a bag

                    If you don’t have access to a pan (like on a camping trip) or if you need to make a large number of omelets at once, you can actually make omelets in a bag with some boiling water. Put some eggs into a plastic eggs, add what ingredients you like, and then put them in the boiling water. Don’t worry – the plastic bag will not melt.

                    If you do want to try this, take note to get a very good plastic bag and not some cheap flimsy thing at the grocery store. If you use something cheap, the bag can spill open and your omelet will be ruined.

                    16243189597_dc4a4b31fe_z

                      Meat omelet

                      Healthy options are good and all, but sometimes you may just want something nice and delicious with a load of meat inside. Thankfully, omelets are so versatile that you can do that too.

                      Good meat recommendations are chicken and sausages (as opposed to pork and beef.) You want something with a lighter taste that will blend in with the chicken and whatever vegetables you may choose to add. Pepperoni is another good option as well.

                      50 Habits of Highly Successful People You Should Learn

                      50 Habits of Highly Successful People You Should Learn

                      If you’re like me and really into self-development, you’ve probably read many of the thousands of self-help books out there on the market. But also like me, you probably find all the information a bit overwhelming.

                      That’s why I wanted to do the self-less task of taking the most important, life-changing lessons I’ve drawn from these books and condensed them into fifty key points.

                      Here’re 50 habits of highly successful people you should learn:

                      1. Believe It to See It

                      Our minds tend to focus on what’s happening around us and refuse to see what could happen. Only when you trust in what’s possible and dare to dream big, big things can happen for you.

                      2. See Problems as a Wonderful Gift

                      While others only see problems and give up, successful people use the problem as a lesson to find improvement in themselves or the task at hand.

                      3. Keep Looking for Solutions

                      Even if they’re knee-deep in problems, successful people will still put all of their focus on finding solutions.

                      4. Remember It’s All About the Journey

                      Successful people are conscious and methodical in creating their own success. They don’t sit around doing the bare minimum, hoping success finds them.

                      5. Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway

                      There’s so much fear on the road to success, but instead of letting that fear control and limit them, successful people do a good job of just forging ahead regardless.

                      6. Always Ask Productive Questions

                      It’s all about asking the right questions. Successful people make sure they are questions that will elicit information for a more productive, creative and positive mindset moving forward.

                      7. Understand the Best Waste of Energy Is Complaining

                      Successful people know that choosing to see the negative side of things will only create a useless and unproductive state.

                      8. Don’t Play the Blame Game

                      Taking responsibility for actions and outcomes is a form of empowerment that you can build your success upon. While the act of blaming others or outside circumstances takes this empowerment away from you.

                      Advertising

                      9. Maximize Your Strengths

                      Not every successful person is simply more talented than the rest, but they do use what they know they’re good at to achieve more successful results.

                      10. Be in It to Win It

                      Successful people are busy, productive and proactive. Instead of sitting around over-thinking and over-planning a great idea, they just take a step towards it no matter how small.

                      11. Know That Success Attracts Success

                      People who are successful surround themselves and seek out like-minded people. They understand the importance of being part of a team and forge win-win relationships.

                      12. Actually Choose to Be Successful

                      Dreaming big is a massive part of being successful even if your dream seems impossible. Ambition is a mindset that needs to be a daily conscious choice.

                      13. Visualize, Visualize, Visualize!

                      You’ve got to see your success in your mind’s eye even before it comes. Successful people clarify and get that certainty about what they want their reality to look like rather than being mere spectators of life.

                      14. Be a One-Off Original

                      Successful people look for what’s working and then create a unique spin on it. Imitating only regurgitates other people’s ideas with no originality.

                      15. The Perfect Time to Act Is Now

                      Waiting for the right time to act is basically procrastination wrapped up in an excuse. Successful people know there’s never a perfect time so they may as well just do it now.

                      16. Keep Learning, Keep Growing

                      Continuous learning is the key to a successful life. Whether it’s academic, being a student of life or actionable learning, it’s all about expanding your knowledge and personal development.

                      17. Always Look on the Bright Side of Life

                      Successful people have the knack for finding positive aspects in all people and circumstances no matter what.

                      18. Having a Bad Day? Do It Anyway!

                      We all have bad moods but it shouldn’t be an excuse to stop everything. Giving into a bad mood just stop-starts your life, slowing success way down.

                      19. Sometimes Risky Business Is Needed

                      Calculated risks are a must for success. It’s about weighing the pros and cons while moving forward with that element of trust.

                      Advertising

                      20. Accept Challenge All the Time

                      Dealing with problems head-on is a must to be successful. Successful people also face challenges in order to improve themselves.

                      21. Make Your Own Luck

                      In the mindset of a successful person, there’s no such thing as ‘luck’ or ‘fate’. They take control to actively and consciously create their own best life.

                      22. Ignite Your Initiative

                      While many people are reactive, successful people are proactive – taking action before they have to.

                      23. Be the Master of Your Emotions

                      Being effective at managing emotions is key on the road to success. That’s not to say successful people don’t feel like we all do, but they’re just not slaves to their emotions.

                      24. Champion in Communication

                      Consciously working on effective communication skills gets anyone closer to success.

                      25. Plan Your Life Strategically

                      Successful people’s lives aren’t a clumsy series of unplanned events and outcomes, they methodically work at turning their plans into a reality.

                      26. Become Exceptional at What You Do

                      To become exceptional, you typically have to do things that most won’t. To become successful, hard decisions need to be made and acting on them is crucial.

                      27. Choose to Live Outside of Your Comfort Zone

                      While many people are pleasure junkies and avoid pain and discomfort at all costs, successful people understand the value and benefits of working through the tough stuff that most would avoid.

                      28. Live by Core Values

                      Successful people firstly identify their core values and what’s important to them, then do their best to live a life that reflects these values.

                      29. Realize Money Isn’t Everything

                      Money and success are not interchangeable and the most successful people understand this. Putting money on a pedestal and equating it to success is a dangerous mindset to have. Success comes in many forms.

                      30. Don’t Get Carried Away

                      Successful people understand the importance of discipline and self-control and as a result they are happy to take the road less travelled.

                      Advertising

                      31. Self-Worth Is Not Tied to Success

                      Successful people are secure. They do not derive their self-worth from what they own, who they know, where they live or what they look like.

                      32. Kindness Breeds Kindness (And Success)

                      Generosity and kindness is a common trait among long-term successful people. It’s important to take pleasure in helping others achieve.

                      33. More Humility, Less Arrogance

                      Successful people are humble and happy to admit and apologize for mistakes. This is because they’re confident in their ability. They are happy to learn from others and happy to make others look good rather than seek their own personal glory.

                      34. Change Opens New Doors

                      People who are successful are adaptable and embrace change, while the majority are creatures of comfort and habit. They are comfortable with, and embrace, the new and the unfamiliar.

                      35. Success Requires a Healthy Body

                      It’s not just how you think, it’s about how you show up for success. Successful people understand the importance of being physically well, not for vain reasons but because being in tiptop condition creates a better personal life for success.

                      36. Laziness Just Doesn’t Exist

                      Successful people are never considered lazy. Yes, they can relax when they need to, but working hard is their game.

                      37. Resilience by the Bucket Load

                      When difficulty strikes, most would throw in the towel, but successful people are just warming up.

                      38. Feedback Is Just Another Chance to Improve

                      How people react to feedback determines their potential for success. Being open to constructive criticism and acting on it to improve is most seen in those who are successful.

                      39. Your Vibe Attracts Your Tribe

                      If people are hanging out with toxic and negative people, then they need to take a look at themselves. Successful people hang out with others who are positive and supportive.

                      40. Can’t Control It? Forget It

                      Successful people don’t invest time or emotional energy into things which they have no control of.

                      41. Swim Against the Tide

                      Successful people are not people-pleasers and they don’t need constant approval from others in order to move ahead.

                      Advertising

                      42. Alone Time Is Valuable Time

                      More self-worth means being more comfortable with your own company. Successful people are more happy and see the value in spending time alone.

                      43. Self-Standard Is Higher Than Most

                      Everyone has a choice to set high standards for themselves. Successful people do this, which in turn produces greater commitment, more momentum, a better work ethic and of course, better results.

                      44. Failure Isn’t Rationalized

                      While many use age, health, lack of time, ‘bad luck’, or lack of opportunity to explain away their failure, the key to success is finding a way to succeed despite facing these challenges.

                      45. Down Time Is an Important Part of a Routine

                      Having an off switch and taking time to do things that make them happy is a common trait of a successful person. Take a look at here The Importance of Scheduling Downtime.

                      46. Career Isn’t Who You Are, It’s What You Do

                      Successful people know their career isn’t their identity. They are multi-dimensional and don’t define themselves by their job.

                      47. Be Interested in Only the Path of Resistance

                      While most people look for the easiest way or the shortcut, successful people are more interested in the most effective way. They look for the course of action which will produce the best results over the long term.

                      48. Follow Through

                      Many spend their life starting things that they never finish, but successful people get the job done. Even when the excitement and the novelty has worn off they still follow through and finish.

                      49. Invest in All Your Dimensions

                      We’re not just physical and psychological beings, but emotional and spiritual creatures as well. Successful people consciously work at being healthy and productive on all levels.

                      50. Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is

                      To obtain success, it’s important to practice what you preach. Successful people don’t talk about the theory, they live the reality.

                      So there you have it, a summary of what I’ve learned from self-help books. But of course, you need to start taking actions so you will get closer to success too.
