I am excited to be joining a fantastic group of bloggers today with this special #SundaySupper event celebrating Dad’s. My dad is the one who actually influenced me with my cooking. My mom did all of the daily cooking growing up, but for her it was something she had to do, not something she enjoyed. When it came to holiday cooking, especially baking, the kitchen was Dad’s territory. Over the years he became known for a lot of his dishes and one of his specialities is his omelette bar. I have such wonderful memories of walking around the house on Christmas day writing down everyone’s orders. He often had a list of up to 10 ingredients choices for an omelette and everyone, young and old, got to choose what they wanted in theirs. I have known my dad prepare this omelette bar for groups as big as 25+. Each person’s omelette was make carefully to order and it was perfect every time. I have no idea how on earth my dad achieved this task, because I found making 4 omelettes was hard enough. But I imagine that as with everything practice makes it easier. So to honour my dad, my amazing husband who is celebrating his first Father’s day, and my wonderful father-in-law I took on the challenge of trying to create the perfect French style omelettes that my dad is known for. It takes some practising to get it nice and thin and yet hold together but it is well worth the effort. So happy father’s day Daddy, I wish you could be spending it here with us.
Dad’s Omelette Bar
*Fillings of your choice
When it comes to the fillings for your omelettes some preparation before hand is in order to make your life easier. You need all of the ingredients ready to go when you start cooking because the process is very quick. Ingredients such as bacon and mushrooms need to be cooked before hand so make sure you give yourself the prep time.
If you want to use tomatoes make sure that you remove the meat of it so as not to cause too much liquid to spoil the omelette.
If you are making a large quantity of omelettes for simplicity sake write down what everyone would like to have on their omelette, or what they don’t want if that is easier. That way when you are cooking up the omelettes you can work quickly.
If you are making more then 2 omelettes pre-heat your oven to 90C (190 F). Prepare your large frying pan by drizzling oil onto it and wiping it with a paper towel to get rid of the excess. Heat pan over medium high heat and then turn down to medium low.
Scramble the eggs until they are well blended and then add them to your heated skillet. Use a spatula to quickly scramble them up in the pan for a second and then spread the eggs back out so that it covers the bottom. Add a tight fitting lid and cook until the eggs is almost cooked through.
Carefully flip the other side over. Add the omelette to a baking tray and place in warm oven while you complete the rest of the omelettes, being careful to remember which one is which. If you are only doing one or two a quick second under the broiler to melt the cheese is all you need. Serve and enjoy.
