An Omelette Is For Lovers
Properly season the teflon coated frying pan
With half pound bacon cooked crisp and lean
Pour off the excess fat and leave a trace
That gives a hint of savory taste.
Then in a bowl large and steady,
Grate a cup of the best cheddar cheese when you’re ready
Only the best aged yellow will do
When making an omelette just for two.
Crack five eggs into the bowl
And then add in this special order,
Half can of “original” Rotel tomatoes
(seasoned with green peppers and such
The hot or spicy Rotel is a bit too much.)
Make sure half the liquid from the can
Is added to the growing omelette for the frying pan.
Then a heaping tablespoon of Parmesan cheese
Added, is sure to please.
Liberal add black pepper and a bit of salt
More can be added later, if you forgot.
Then stir with a fork to blend it all
The mixture should be lumpy, as I recall.
Now into the hot frying pan do add
The bowls ingredients, with a splash.
Then watch over it like a mother hen,
Bubbles should begin to appear from within.
That’s steam formed from the water of the Rotel
It’s cooking the eggs, we like so well.
Take a spatula and lift the edge of the omelette
Allowing the liquid to flow underneath.
(It may be necessary to tilt the pan
To make sure all the liquid also ran.)
The lifted edge should show a bit of tan color
Indicating the heat is just the right adore.
Now with a swirling motion move the omelette if you can
So that it doesn’t stick to the frying pan.
When it moves freely and the bubbling has stopped,
It’s time to make the omelette flop.
Best to stand over the kitchen sink when you try
To encourage the omelette to fly.
Shake the pan as before,
Then when you’re ready a flip or the wrist and more,
Will send the omelette up-up-and away
Hopefully in the pan it will come to rest and stay.
There, it’s flipped and ready for the final touch
Back over the heat, but not too much.
It wont take much time to tan the bottom
So be prepared to serve it quick for certain.
Perhaps a bit of toast with butter is in order
Depends on what ever taste you may harbor.
Now on the table your bacon, toast and omelette
Are ready for a true feast like no other.
As you survey what you have done,
It’s a meal for more than one.
But more than that it is to be,
It’s an expression of love for she or he.
