Who says eggs are just for breakfast?  They are a versatile, inexpensive protein that is a great option any time of day.  This recipe for an “Omelette aux Fines Herbes” is an easy and elegant dish guaranteed to transform your home kitchen into to a chic French Bistro.



3 large eggs

Salt and pepper to taste

1 Tablespoon chopped flat leaf parsley

1 Tablespoon chopped fresh herbs of choice (chives, thyme, tarragon, rosemary, etc)

1 teaspoon butter

1 teaspoon olive oil

  1. In small mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, salt, pepper, parsley, and herbs.
  2. Place butter and olive oil in a medium skillet and heat until butter is foamy and hot.
  3. Pour egg mixture into the center and heat for about 15 seconds.  Stir the eggs with a fork, so the runny part flows between.  Repeat several times, scraping around the edges, until eggs are set.  When the eggs are just barely set, fold omelet in half using a spatula.  Invert onto serving plate.  Serves 1.
