The Making of An Omelette, A Pinterest Poser Challenge

For this week's Pinterest Poser Challenge,* I'm giving details on how to make an omelette.  This is something I've never done before and happens to be on that completely insane Before I'm 40 Bucket List I made

Seriously, what was I thinking when I made that list? lol. Well, I can now check off #8 because I did it--I made an incredibly, okay a sort-of fancy omelette.  (It's one of the only things I can check off and I'm two weeks away from 40 waaaa.) 

*In an attempt at not being a Pinterest Poser,** every week I attempt and detail a new Pinterest challenge (a recipe, a craft, etc.).
**My definition of Pinterest Poser is someone who is all pins and no substance.

My Essential Omelette Ingredients:
4 Eggs
2 Mushrooms
Fresh Spinach
Mozzarella Cheese
Ground Flaxseed

  • I chopped up the mushroom and spinach and set them aside.
  • I whisked the eggs in a bowl.
  • I dashed the salt and pepper. Put approximately 1/3 cup of Mozz cheese in and added a Tablespoon of  ground flaxseed (because I've heard that's really healthy and good for you, so I put it in almost everything I eat now, but I'm not a doctor so don't trust me).

  • I used a pancake griddle to make my omelette.
  • I planned on taking pictures, but I wasn't a graceful omelette maker and I made this on my weekend I spent alone and had none of my children around to take a picture.  It was a drippy, disaster mess.  I used two spatulas to stop the egg mixture from running off the side of the griddle.  
  • Once I contained the dripage, I sprinkled in the spinach and the mushrooms.
  • Somehow, I managed to flip over one side of the eggs to "fold" the omelette.  
  • I cooked for a few minutes and flipped it and cooked for a couple minutes longer.
  • Then I ate it and it was fabulous!!!
Here's my big takeaway, Don't be afraid of the omelette process, the drippy egg mess or the flipping.  Go for it.  And enjoy.

  1. Love these posts and you inspired me to not be a pinterest poser! ;) I made the individual seven layer dip cups and they were a hit at our party.

  2. I think that looks like an amazing omelette! YUM.

  3. I've been eating mushrooms and spinach in my eggs like crazy lately. YUM. My kids love omelets, because they're fat and fluffy and I cut them into perfect little squares. :) I saw this picture before, of your alone time table with the flowers and laptop and I just think that looks like heaven. (Also, try quinoa like mac and cheese....cheese, milk, pepper and salt. Really yummy...our whole family eats it!)
