Taiwanese Breakfast Style Cheese Omelette (iPhone 4 Pictures)

Taiwanese style omelette is one of the staple dishes you will find in a typical Chinese breakfast joint,
The two main ingredients for a TW style omelette are the soft tortilla-like wrap and eggs.

Besides the simple style omelette made with only the wrap and some eggs,
There are also numerous variations for the stuffing ranging from chopped scallions, corns, all the way up to as crazy as tuna or hamburger meat.

Today I'm showing you my favorite omelette flavor, with loads of cheese! -


1 frozen Taiwanese omelette wrap
1 or 2 eggs
2 cheese squares (cheddar preferably)
Some olive oil
Some salt
Some freshly ground black pepper
Some soy sauce


If you have a small/medium sized round shaped pan that'll be wonderful -

I usually heat up the omelette wrap before use,
Just remove the wrap from the package and heat up in a nonstick pan,
About 20 seconds for both sides, once done, remove from heat and set aside.

Here're the key ingredients for my ultimate favorite TW omelette -

Sprinkle the egg with some salt and pepper, beat well,
Remove the cheese from the plastic wrap and tear each into 2 strips.

Drizzle some oil in the pan and turn to high heat,
Pour in beaten egg once the oil gets really hot,
Evenly lay the cheese strips on the egg before it's fully cooked through,
Immediately transfer the wrap onto the egg & cheese mixture and press it down with a spatula.
Wait for few seconds then carefully flip the whole thing to the other side -

Cook for another 10 seconds or so, roll up the omelette and transfer onto a plate,
Drizzle some soy sauce before serving,
Yes you heard me, cheese and soy sauce are actually a pretty genius combination - 

See all that cheesy goodness?
That's what I'm talking about, definitely a great start of the day!

    See if you can find any local Asian grocery stores, they might have it. Otherwise, the omelette wrap is basically made with flour and water, very light mixture.

  5. This looks and sounds really good. Thanks so much for sharing the recipe!
