Pickles are here! oh yeeeahhh. It means Santa Claus is close. Time to taste everything with pickles! Let's honor them since breakfast with a simple, delicious omelette. The supporting actor is green pepper in peppercorns, young pepper with a fresher, greener taste that happens to be one of my favorite ways to enjoy pepper. It is often used in pickles as well, it generally has a more delicate, herb-like flavor and I must say, one of the fine moments in life is smelling the pinched air coming out of the pepper oil when you crush peppercorns. Try it in at least one recipe with green peppercorns during the holidays marathon, don't overlook its anti-bacterial and fat burning properties, on top of its youthful aroma.
No time to concern ourselves with diets et all, we have an omelette to make. You need, for one serving:
1 slice of ham
1 cube of melting cheese (mozzarella, cascaval, Gouda etc) (50g)
8-10 green peppercorns
Beat your eggs. Break with your hands the ham slice and the cheese and add it in the beaten eggs. Crush half of your peppercorns in a spice grinder mmm the flavor will wake you up, sleepyhead! Add half of the crushed pepper in the omelette, plus 2-3 whole green peppercorns.
Heat some olive oil in your omelette pan. When hot, add the rest of your whole peppercorns in the oil, but only for a few seconds, for them to release another version of their flavor, and then quickly toss the omelette in there.
Cover and let cook for a few minutes on low-medium heat. You don't have to flip your omelette, fold it, cover again and let cook for another 3 minutes. Now flip it with a spatula and give it another 3-4 minutes. It will be crispy outside, soft and melting inside.
Serve with the rest of the crushed pepper, chopped parsley and a ton of pickles!
That's a fine way to taste both green pepper, and pickles.
Enjoy your holidays preparations!
