There are tons of great things you can cook on your Steam Shell Griddle. But have you ever tried to cook an omelet? You’ve cooked it in a skillet before but sometimes your omelet sticks and is more brown than yellow. Well, cooking it on your griddle is easier when you know the two secrets involved:
- Cook your omelet on medium-low heat and lightly coat your griddle with cooking oil; this will keep your omelet from sticking.
- When it comes to mixing the eggs, pour in some water rather than milk. While the omelet cooks, the water in it will create steam; this will give you a fluffy, light omelet.
Today, we’ve got a delicious omelet recipe that’s just for one. But if you’re cooking for your clients, this recipe can be expanded.
- 2 tbsp. of cooking oil
- 1-2 tbsp. of water
- 2 large eggs
- ⅓ c. of green pepper, chopped
- 1 tbsp. of plain Greek yogurt
- 1 c. of spinach, rinsed and chopped
- ¼ c. of feta cheese, crumbled
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- 1 dash of Cayenne pepper or red pepper (optional)
Coat one side of your Steam Shell Griddle with 1 tbsp. of cooking oil and turn to medium-low heat. Cook together the green pepper and spinach until the peppers are tender and spinach is wilted, about 30 seconds to 1 minute.
While the veggies cook, whisk, in a large bowl, the 2 eggs, and water until blended. Mix in the salt and pepper (and other pepper if desired).
Add in the yogurt and whisk. Note: Don’t over-whisk! The eggs and yogurt should be whisked only until combined; eggs shouldn’t be foamy.
Lightly coat the other side of your griddle with the remaining tbsp. of oil. Slowly pour the egg mixture on your griddle.
As the egg edges begin to set, add the pre-cooked veggies in an even layer on one-half of the eggs; then, evenly add the feta cheese on top.
Continue to cook the omelet until it still has a layer of moistness on top. Then use a flat, stainless steel spatula to fold the unfilled side of the egg over onto the side that’s filled. Flip the omelet once; grill until it’s done to your liking. Move to a plate and enjoy!
This filling omelet goes well with toast, a bagel, scone, English muffin, or biscuit.
