I am not sure why am I even writing this blog post. I mean it is silly to even blog about something that I cannot eat and have never tasted myself, so I don’t even know how it feels like. If you have been following my blog at all, you will know that I am talking about “Eggs”. Yes the humble, powerful and versatile Eggs that are such a life saver.
I am allergic to Eggs and just cannot eat them. I can have them in a Cake but that’s it I cannot push my luck beyond that. Don’t judge me and think I am not adventurous. I am and I have tried them a few times just to check if it is a psychological thing or am I really allergic. And sadly the Eggs have always won.
The husband however can eat Eggs and just because I cannot eat them doesn’t mean I have to deprive him of the wholesome goodness that Eggs offer. So I make a point to make them for him atleast twice a week in different ways. And one of my favorite way of making them is with Pancetta. Which is funny because again I wouldn’t be eating them, I am not saying that he doesn’t love this way of making Eggs, he always says that the Omelet tastes delicious. But more than him I myself love frying the Pancetta in the pan and then watching the Eggs fluff up and rise into soft pillows. There is something very soothing about it.
My mouth is literally watering as I write this blog, dreaming about them. Sigh, story of my life. Anyways I hope you make this and tell me if you enjoyed it.
Recipe (Cooking time 15 minutes, makes 1 big Omelet)
1 tbsp freshly chopped Parsley
1 tbsp diced Pancetta or rindless Bacon
1 Green chilli finely chopped (optional)
Salt and Pepper to taste
2 tsp Olive Oil
1) Heat the Oil in a pan and add the Pancetta to it and saute on a low flame till cooked. This will only take a few minutes. Be careful as it can burn easily.
2) Crack the Eggs in a bowl and add the chopped chilli, Salt and Pepper and whisk really well with a fork.
3) Pour the Egg mixture on top of the Pancetta and sprinkle most of the Parsley on top. Leaving a little to garnish. (You can also grate a little Cheddar Cheese if you really want to indulge)
4) Flip the Omelet gently so it can cook on the other side. Be careful as the Pancetta will make the Omelet a little heavy.
5) Once done sprinkle some more Parsley and serve with toasted Buttered Bread.
