How Amazing is a Single Egg?

Oh what a beautiful Sunday Morning! Are you ready for this day? It’s a big sports day in America. Our equivalent to the World Cup. But that’s not what this morning’s post is all about.

I don’t know about you, but every time I make tacos or burritos or even beefy enchiladas, there is at least a little filling left. That’s intentional. It’s better to have some meat filling left over than to run short. After all, you can always fry up another taco shell. That’s easier than trying to cook up more meat. Besides, how many tacos can you eat in one sitting?

Sometimes my guys will take tortillas and left over filling for lunch. Sometime I’ll wrap the filling in a corn tortilla, fry it up in a skillet and simply enjoy some left overs. And then there are times like this, when a simple one-egg omelette is calling my name. That’s the beauty of an omelette – they are so versatile. Filled with a scattering of cheese, or a single diced tomato or in this case with a little taco filling. Now I ask you, when you make tacos, do you have just a little filling left? A one-egg omelette only needs about 2 tablespoons of filling. Surely you’ve got that!

One Egg Leftover Taco Omelettes
Cooking Spray
1 Egg, beaten
Salt to taste
Pepper to taste
1/8 cup Taco Meat Filling
1 tablespoon Mexican Cheese

Spray a 1-egg Omelette pan with cooking spray. Warm over medium-low heat.

Beat egg in a small bowl, season with salt and pepper. Set aside.

Measure out filling, place in a small bowl or paper plate. Warm in the microwave for about 15 seconds. Set aside.

Pour egg into warmed pan. Let cook slowly, undisturbed, until edges begin to set. With an Omelette Spatula, lift and loosen omelette. Once fully set, flip omelette and remove from heat.

Spread meat filling and cheese on one side of the omelette. Gently fold unfilled side over filled side. Return to heat for a minute or so. Turn once more, continue to warm until the cheese has melted and everything is nice and warm and delicious.

Slide omelette out onto a plate. Eat as is for a light yet satisfying breakfast. Or serve with some greens or maybe a slice of toast. Just don’t forget the coffee.
