CtBF: MPK ~ Fresh herb omelet

 Happy New Year 2017!
Wishing all my fellow members at CtBF, and my visitors
a year of good health and good cheer!
We at CookTheBookFridays (CtBF) are kicking off the new year
 Using two eggs with a big splash of cream (or two!),
grated Parmesan cheese, chopped Thai basil
and a garnish of chopped spring onions,
both of which are homegrown!
A delightful breakfast for one (me!)
with fresh fruits - kiwi and starfruit
and a huge mug of Vietnamese coffee, black no sugar!
A power breakfast, I might say!
A must-make-for-hubby when he is back to Kuala Lumpur.

  1. That sounds like a most excellent breakfast Emily! Happy New Year.

  2. Happy New Year Emily, your breakfast looks good and very healthy.

  3. Nice breakfast description!! Yes, you can totally use Asiago when you use parmesan! In fact, that's exactly how/when we used asiago growing up. Sounds fabulous and glad the omelet was tasty!

  4. Wow, that looks wonderful! Great additions - and the coffee!!

  5. Happy New Year, Emily! I love the assortment of herbs everyone is featuring. So many variations.

  6. Your additions sound great and such a good idea to serve it with kiwi and starfruit - yum! I love your big stack of cookbooks, too - Ready for Dessert is a go to for me and you're going to love Dorie's Cookies!

  7. I love the fruit addition!! I also like the idea of parmesan- I always have that on hand

  8. I wanted to use Thai Basil and spring onions too, but opt for the chives as they need a trim! :)
    These omelet is lovely and your hubby would surely love it!
    Nice stack of cookbooks! wink!!

  9. This omelet is key to a power breakfast cooked to perfection. I look at your cookbook stack with great interest.

  10. Happy New Year, Emily, I am not sure I have ever eaten starfruit before. Your plate looks beautiful and, yes, powerful. I liked this easy omelet and, what is nice, as you realized, is that it's a great meal for just one person. No leftovers. No waste. I hope your husband likes it also.

    1. Mary, I made the omelet (with sauted mushroom filling) for hubby with a green salad! He said 'ok-lah'
