Simple omelette

Some people avoid eggs because of its cholesterol content. However, one must also not forget that eggs also contain important nutritional contents like protein, iron, minerals and B vitamins. All you need to do is to plan your diet accordingly and be mindful of the cholesterol in egg and other food you eat every day. Limit your egg intake to 3-4 eggs per week. For me, it’s important to have everything in moderation for a healthy and balanced diet. Even good things can be bad if taken excessively.

 

On a separate note, eggs are highly allergenic food (particularly the egg whites) for baby below 1 year old. Thus, most pediatric resources recommend only egg yolk (fully cooked) for baby over 9 months old. For egg white, it can only be introduced to baby above 1 year old. If your family has a history of egg allergy,  it is best to introduce eggs in a baby’s diet until he/she turns one.

There are many different methods of cooking/baking with eggs. Omelette is certainly the most common dish served in each household. It was one of my childhood favourite dish. Whenever I smelled my mother’s freshly cooked omelette, I would secretly sneak into the kitchen and “steal” a few bites. Now, it’s also my son’s top favourite. He gets very excited when he sees omelette served during mealtime. He is adamant to his equal share of the omelette too!

 

This simple omelette dish I made is quite similar to the Chinese omelette we order in a Chinese restaurant called “Fu Rong Dan/ Fu Yong Tan” (芙蓉蛋). I adapted this recipe from Hawker’s Fair Simplified cookbook and modified it according to my family’s preference. Instead of shrimps and barbecue pork as the main ingredients, I had replaced it with vegetarian barbecue pork and added some capsicums to substitute the chili. Doesn’t it look colourful and appealing to whet your visual appetite?

    Interestingly enough, I absolutely love eggs. I love them by themselves and mixed in with other foods. But omelettes are my least favorite way to prepare them. I think it’s as texture thing. I wonder if this would taste good scrambled? It sure looks great.

      Amy: I haven’t tried using this combination in making scrambled eggs but your idea sounds great to give it a try. It may turn out better than mine! Do share with me your feedback. Tks!! ;)

      Pigpigscorner: Tks for your wonderful suggestion and kind comments!! Sometimes, I feel bad to discard the egg yolks. So alternatively, I will watch out the cholesterol intake for my family members. ;)
