Whilst This Little Pig loves eating, cooking and most of all eating, there comes a time even in This Little Pig’s life where time is of the essence and a slow roasted lamb shoulder ragu might take a little longer than This Little Pig has available. The key to enjoying simple delights that are quick and easy to prepare, is to have some fabulous staples on hand for those nights you come home late and are ready to collapse in a hungry heap.
This Little Pig includes in these staples, a delightful fetta (splurge you fabulous swine, fetta changes lives), free-range eggs (freeee thaaaa chickennnns), a crunchy sourdough loaf, Australian garlic, fresh dill, fresh parsley, creamy butter, a zingy parmesan & a packet of smoked salmon. Whilst these items may seem ridiculous to be listed as staples, these are amazingly flexible items piglets, that can create you a gourmet meal that will make you feel like you’ve feasted like a king, all the while you’ve actually been more of a ‘tracky panted bogan’ with bad hair.
So what does one do with these items when the tummy is a rumbling and your soft fluffy bed calls your name in dulcet tones?
The Lazy Sow Omelette:
Serves: 2 Hungry & Tired Piglets
(Can be served with a tomato, red onion, olive & avocado salad to top up your veg count)
5 x Free Range Eggs
40g x Marinated Fetta
1 x Tbs Butter
½ x Packet Smoked Salmon
2 x Sprigs Fresh Thyme
¼ x Bunch of Parsley
½ x Packet of Dill
3 x Cloves of Garlic
4 x Slices Thick Sourdough Bread
¼ x Cup Parmesan
Step 1: Crack your eggs into a bowl & gently whisk with a fork.
Step 2: Skin & finely slice your garlic.
Step 3: Finely dice your parsley & dill & pull your thyme leaves off the stem.
Step 4: Plop your butter into the pan and heat until golden and bubbling.
Step 5: Add your garlic in and stir gently until starting to turn golden.
Step 6: Pour your whisked eggs into the pan & move around the pan a little before allowing the egg to cover the pan in a thin layer.
Step 7: Wildly throw your bread into the toaster then get back to that omelette!
Step 8: Turn off the pan once the egg starts firming up. Over half of the omelette, crumble your feta, sprinkle the parmesan and the fresh herbs & finally top with lashings of smoked salmon.
Step 9: While wildly covering the omelette with condiments, the omelette will continue to firm. Once the omelette is almost firm, flip (This Little Pig has varying results at this stage - 'may need to turn this into a scrambled eggs' result is common) with grace and style, the unadorned ½ of the omelette onto the smoked salmon half and cook (by leaving in the warm pan) for a minute longer if needed. You want your omelette to be sliiiightly runny inside so it maintains a moist texture.
Step 10: Serve out your crunchy sourdough slices and top with a portion of your omelette. A crack of sea salt and pepper and you are ready to dine on the most divine omelette in less than 15 minutes. Oink!
