My Emergency Breakfast - Omelet with...Almost Nothing

This is a super duper easy recipe for super duper hungry people in the morning.
You can twitch the recipe in so many ways to fit your personal taste.

I didn't do much with mine since:
1. I didn't feel like touching the kitchen knife in the morning, especially when my eyes were still half closed.
2. There's nothing in the fridge. Nothing, except some dairy products and few dry ingredient in the cabinet.

But even with only a few items, I still managed to make a yummy breakfast in...5 minutes!


3 eggs
2 tablespoons of heavy whipping cream
Some dried seaweed flakes
Some toasted sesame seeds
Some shredded mozzarella
Some ketchup
Olive oil


Beat all the eggs in a small bowl, remember to add a pinch of salt and the heavy cream there too. In a skillet, drizzle some olive oil and wait until it gets hotter.

When it's ready, pour in the eggs and let it cook for a while,
Sprinkle some dried seaweed and toasted sesame seeds when the bottom of the eggs turned slightly brown.

Then just gradually form the mixture into an omelet,
The trick here is don't stir it too much,
Only flip or fold the edges once a while.

Sprinkle some cheese on the omelet, transfer to the plate, serve with some ketchup.
Voila, so easy huh?!

I only used those ingredients because that's all I got in the kitchen,
You can do so much with this,
Add some smoked salmon, ham, sausages, mushrooms, or bell peppers,
Or instead of mozzarella, you can use Parmesan, cheddar, or pepper jack,
The best part is the sauce,
Besides ketchup, you can substitute it with blueberry jam (yes, it's good!) or even fresh salsa!
Just let your cooking intuition lead you in making the perfect omelet!

Cindy's Rating: 7 (I consider it very good since I have nothing in the kitchen)

Here's my best scenario for my omelet:
Eggs with heavy whipping cream and lots of mozzarella mixed with pepper jack,
Filling comes with smoked ham, onions, mushroom, and spinach,
Topped with either homemade ketchup or fresh salsa.
Mmmmmm mouth watering!


  1. Beautiful omelet! Your photo of your omelet looks like it is worthy to be sold for a high price tag at a expensive hotel :).

    I like ketchup with eggs too. That idea, for me, came from eating breakfast platters at McDonalds as they give you ketchup and eggs...

  2. my favourite omelette is spanish omelett, the tortilla, with potatoes, tomatoes, ham, onions and on top some chives.

  3. To EatTravelEat~

    Talking about McDonald's, I always put ketchup in their hamburgers, tastes so good!

    To Twentyone-Ten~
