ABC Omelet

As you read the post above, didn’t you think something was a little, um, odd about it? Call off the gendarmes! We are not raising chickens on our apartment balcony! Because I’m aware that my neighbors Jennifer (who is a very good sport) and Mike (who is on the Home Owners Association), do read this blog (my first post deliberately suggested that they didn’t), I thought I’d play a neighborly prank. 

Each will have gasped at the post above - made all the more believable by the fact that Ive been playing prerecorded hen and rooster squawks on and off for the past two days from a portion of our balcony neither can see. So look who’s cackling now ... !

chicken clucks. Heh, heh, heh ... Gotcha!

So heres the delicious egg recipe I promised in the post above. A stands for the Assortment of vegetables in this deliciously nutritious dish; B is for its Bacon and Bell peppers; and C is for its Cheese. 

ABC Omelet:

3 slices side bacon
1 tbsp. canola oil
1 small onion, and chopped into 1/2-in. pieces 
1/3 of a red bell pepper, seeded and chopped into 1/2-in. pieces 
1/3 of a yellow bell pepper, seeded and chopped into 1/2-in. pieces 
1/4 c. broccoli flowerets, in 1/2-in. pieces
1 small tomato, sliced into 1/2-in. pieces
1/4 c. cheddar, in small chunks
4 eggs, beaten well
Salt and pepper, to taste

Fry bacon strips on shallow microwave-safe plate lined with a paper towel. Blot dry and chop into 1/2-in. pieces. Set aside. In medium skillet, add oil over medium heat. Stir-fry onions, peppers, and broccoli 2 min. Add tomato and bacon, stir-frying just until heated through. Dot with cheese. Reduce heat to low. Pour eggs over vegetables and cheese, lifting egg mixture around edges after 30 sec. to ensure edges cook through. Cover and let sit about 2 min.  Serve immediately, sliced into 2-to-4 portions. All in good fun and no harm done!   xox   Nicole

As easy as ABC!

  1. It wouldn't surprise me a bit if you were raising chickens, or growing grapes! When the parrot comes of age I'll send over a 1/2 dozen eggs for the one and only African Grey omelet. Or, if you prefer, a nice free range roasted parrot perhaps? He'll probably taste like peanuts so I would suggest a nice Thai peanut sauce as a dipping sauce:)

    1. Hahahahahahaha! (Readers: This is an in-joke ...)
