Breakfast Herb Omelette
This fantastic breakfast herb omelette is a lovely filling for that something different for a change. If you would like something different than your usual omelette filling, the breakfast herb omelet is the ideal recipe for you! While working at St Omer Nursery in Paarl, I became aware of how fantastic it actually is to have a lot of fresh herbs all around you to cook with! With unlimited access!
I would encourage you to start a fresh herb garden - if you do not already have one. You will see the difference to dried herbs - once you have discovered fresh herbs you fill find it difficult to use dried herbs again. That is how I see it.
This breakfast herb omelette is just slightly different from your usual one, but with the lovely cheeses inside it is an herb-a -luscious omelet!
The three best herbs to use in this omelette is French Chives or Garlic Chives - a very popular herb choice that goes excellent with eggs. Secondly French Tarragon and last but not the least, Parsley: Flat leaf or Curly parsley.
A mature Cheddar cheese is a very good idea to use as a cheddar cheese. The maturity of the Cheddar just gives it extra flavour to add up with the tasty flavours of the trio of herbs mix - you might pay a little bit more for a piece of mature Cheddar than just a plain Cheddar, but the end result is so much better!
Most people I know always have a small tub of plain cream cheese in their fridge. If you still have some left, and you have run out of ideas, why not use it in this fantastic breakfast herb omelette? And by quick thought, a little bit of goats cheese can also add flavour to it.
For garnish add lovely micro herbs- available from your local supermarket or nursery (grow some even yourself!)
Or invite a few lady friends over to celebrate fresh herbs and an herb garden over on Arbor Day Take photos and advertise it in your local paper or leaflet to emphasize on the importance of Arbor Day. Use this omelet as a breakfast feast choice!
