I have not tried this yet. I'm posting for the WT 06. Original recipe from Debra F. Weber and altered a little for what we like.

ingredients

directions

  • Heat olive oil over medium heat.
  • Add the Canadian bacon and cook until lightly browned.
  • Remove and set aside.
  • In a bowl, whisk the eggs with the water and chives, along with a couple pinches of salt and some pepper.
  • Melt the butter in an 8 inch skillet over med-high heat.
  • When it has stopped foaming swirl the butter to coat the bottom of the pan and pour in the egg mixture.
  • Using the back of a fork and keeping it flat on the bottom of the pan, lightly scramble the eggs, using small circular motions.
  • As the mixture firms, hold some eggs back from the side of the pan and tilt the pan to spread the eggs over the bottom.
  • Scatter the Gruyere over the omelette, leaving a margin around the edges.
  • Add the Canadian Bacon.
  • Using a spatula, lift 1/3 of the omelette and fold it over the center.
  • Tilt the pan toward the plate so that 1/3 of the omelette hangs over the edge.
  • Invert the pan, using the spatula for support, so that it flips neatly over itself out of the pan.
  • To Serve, garnish with more chopped chives if desired and serve immediately with some sliced tomatoes.

    This made a wonderful brunch this weekend! I love using gruyere in egg dishes, but I'd never tried it with Canadian bacon before. Very tasty combo. Thanks Nimz!

    FanTAStic. I made a three-egg omelette, increasing the other ingredients by one-third. The combination of chives, gruyere and canadian bacon is excellent. Try it, you'll like it! I served it with Recipe #133133 #133133 which was an inspired pairing.

    Very nice change from the old ham and cheddar! I love Gruyere, but had never used it in an omelet. Going to try it in an asparagus omelet next! Nice melting cheese. I found Canadian bacon that has been peppered, so that added a nice flavor also. Thanks for posting this!
