Beer - it's not just for drinking anymore!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 6 large eggs
  • 2 12 fluid ounces Guinness stout (or your favourite broosky)
  • 12 teaspoon Pickapeppa Sauce (or other liquid hot pepper sauce)
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3 tablespoons parmesan cheese


  1. In a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs, broosky and hot pepper sauce with a whisk only until blended, not frothy.
  2. In an 8½-inch omelette pan over medium heat, melt 1 tablespoon of the butter.
  3. When the pan is hot enough that a drop of water spatters in it, pour 1/3 of the egg mixture into the pan.
  4. Place one hand on the pan handle, palm down, and move the pan in a back-and-forth motion.
  5. With the other hand, using a fork, stir the egg mixture in a circular motion, about seven times; sprinkle 1 tablespoon of the cheese onto the omelet.
  6. To turn out the omelet, place your hand on the handle with palm upward- tip the pan and roll the omelet out onto a plate.
  7. Repeat twice with the remaining egg mixture.
  8. Serve with additional hot pepper sauce, if desired.

I just happened to have two bottles of Guinness and thought that the combination with the hot sauce and parmesan cheese was unusual, but it turned out very good - flavorful and tasty. My wife questioned the ingredients, but she too enjoyed it. Of course, I HAD to finish the remaining Guinness and the other bottle was without a friend, so that one also, had to go! Thanks, MilleĀ® ™!

I don't drink guinness but had some leftover from a stew I made and this recipe peaked my interest. I cut it down to serve one and was most impressed, the guinness taste is not distinguishable in this, and the omelette is fluffy & high due to the yeast in the stout. Very tasty brekky, thanks!

I didn't use Guiness for this, but rather organic Wolaver's oatmeal stout, which is a lovely very dark beer. I really loved the flavor of this. I actually opted to use an extra-sharp cheddar rather than parmesean, which I highly recommend as the cheddar and beer flavor combination is so yummy. I flaked and forgot the hot sauce, but it was still lovely without. Very flavorful- I was delightfully surprised at how well beer goes with eggs! Now I know! I will surely make this again- its fabulous.
