Weekend Omelette Greek Salad Style




It's so easy to enjoy a taste of Greece in your own home with this recipe suggestion. It's very quick and simple, and can be enjoyed anytime! Many may think this perfect for a mid-week meal, but it tastes great at the weekend too! I think you'll just love how the feta melts when put under the grill ... yum!

Ingredients:
Serves Four
10 eggs
handful of parsley leaves, chopped (optional)
2 tbsp. olive oil
1 large red onion, cut into wedges
3 tomatoes, chopped into large chunks
large handful black olives, (pitted are easier to eat)
100g feta cheese, crumbled
salt and pepper

Method:
1. Heat the grill to high. Whisk the eggs in a large bowl with the chopped parsley, pepper and salt. Heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan, then fry the onion wedges over a high heat for about 4 mins until they start to brown around the edges. Throw in the tomatoes and olives and cook for 1-2 mins until the tomatoes begin to soften.
2. Turn the heat down to medium and pour in the eggs. Cook the eggs in the pan, stirring them as they begin to set, until half cooked, but still runny in places – about 2 mins. Scatter over the feta, then place the pan under the grill for 5-6 mins until omelette is puffed up and golden. Cut into wedges and serve straight from the pan.

Tip:
Make it meaty, for a non-vegetarian version why not ripple over slices of ham or bacon before scattering over the feta, then grill until crispy.

I often make a feta omelette but this adds a new twist. Might just try it when I get back from Greece. Three weeks to go.
