Caramelized Onion & Cheddar French Omelette

The bf has pretty much perfected the french omelette! This info and recipe are money. 

  • 3 eggs, beaten and at room temperature
  • 1 small/medium onion, minced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • Cheese, grated
  • Basil, chiffonade
  • Tomato, chopped
  • Butter
  • Canola oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  1. Add onion to a sauté pan with about 3-4 tbsp canola oil and 1-2 tbsp butter. Add 1 tsp salt.
  2. Bring heat up till sizzling and toss a few times then reduce heat to low-medium and let the onions slowly caramelize. This should take about 10-12 minutes, maybe longer. Be patient - it is worth it!
  3. After the onions are a nice golden brown color, toss in the minced garlic clove and toss a few times.
  4. Remove the onion from the pan and add 2 tbsp butter. Heat the pan till the butter just starts to brown.
  5. Add the beaten eggs and use a spatula to stir the eggs so you get small folds of solidifying egg. Then, with the top of your omelet still liquid, stop moving the pan and add your onion, cheese, half your basil, and pepper.
  6. Let the omelet sit for 45-60 seconds and then plate. *Keep the heat on high for this whole process*
  7. Garnish with tomato and basil and a drizzle of flavored olive oil of your choice (I make mine with basil, lemon peel, and hot chili peppers).
