the most important meal of the day

Homemade omelette.
The best way to kick start a day is a great breakfast. Especially when you're trying to fight a cold (like myself.) Here's a little meal I cooked this morning.


- red skin potatoes
- butter
- onion (chopped)
- 3 eggs
- spinach
- sausage
- dollop of sour cream

Most of these ingredients I chose because they currently reside in my pantry. As a college student, you only have so many ingredients in your kitchen. You can truly make any kind of omelette you choose to. It's easy and it lets you be creative with your cooking. No recipe is ever truly needed for an omelette.  
All you need are the basics:

1. Depending on your ingredients, you may need to cook them separately before putting them in the omelette. For example, I boiled the red skin potatoes in a separate pot and cooked the sausage in a different pan.
2. You can make your omelette as large or small as possible. This morning I used 3 eggs. Next, beat your eggs. You can add any herbs/spices. I added pepper and salt.
3. Pour a tablespoon of butter to the pan. Then pour the eggs into the pan (preferably one with the size of your omelette.)
4. After the eggs look firm on the bottom and a little runny on top, pour your ingredients as evenly as possible.
   *you can then add shredded cheese for some extra flavor
5. Make sure your egg isn't sticking to the edges of the pan.
6. Then fold in half! Viola! You've got an omelette.
7. You can add sour cream on top for just a little extra yum!

Remember: You can add any kind of ingredient you'd like to an omelette. The great thing about these is that there is no true recipe to stick by. It is all up to you.

Here's to good, yummy, inexpensive and easy meals!
