Mushroom and Thyme Omelette with Gorgonzola

Mushroom and Thyme Omelette with Gorgonzola


I have been on quite the roll with omelettes lately and I was ready for more. This time I was thinking about a mushroom omelette with some caramelized onions. I really enjoyed the way that the gorgonzola worked in the last two omelettes so I could not leave that out, especially not when gorgonzola goes so well with mushrooms. I wanted a bit of green in there and I was thinking that it would be nice if it was in herb form and thyme naturally fit the bill. Normally when cooking mushrooms I like to slice them and saute them until they are nice and caramelized but I had liked the way that previous omelettes had large pieces of the main ingredient popping out from beneath the eggs so I decided to quarter the mushrooms and only saute them briefly so they would stay nice and large. The omelette was super easy to make and it turned out great! The meaty mushrooms went well with the sweet caramelized onions and the tangy gorgonzola and the thyme finished everything off nicely. Once again I really enjoyed the way that the gorgonzola melted and mingled with the soft and warm eggs infusing them with flavour! This omelette really hit the spot for a weekend breakfast!

I am really enjoying omelettes again, now my baby has arrived and they are safe to eat again, and blue cheese too, was something I missed. This is the king of all omelettes.

StudioOneDJ said...

How do you get the eggs to cook all the way through in 2 minutes?

Following your instructions, the eggs would be runny/uncooked on the top.

Kevin said...

StudioOneDJ: The cooking time will vary depending on the type and size of your pan and the temperature of your burner. I have updated the recipe to both be more clear as to your goal and to indicate that the cooking time can vary. Thanks for catching that.
