Mint OmeletHere's an intriguing idea - a mint-leaf omelette!

I saw this a lot while researching i frittati, usually near other simple omelettes that called only for garden-fresh herbs. During nice weather we always have plenty of spearmint and peppermint in the garden, so I decided to give this a try.

It's delicious! The mint needs nothing else, no cheese or onion, and certainly no sugar. It's simple and elegant! 

2 Servings
Preparation time
5 minutes
  1. Melt the butter in an omelet pan with gently sloping sides.
  2. Combine the eggs with the mint leaves and pour the mixture into the pan.
  3. Cook over low heat until set around the edges.
  4. Slide the omelet out of the pan onto a plan, then flip it over back into the hot skillet.
  5. Finish cooking another couple of minutes and serve hot.
You can also make this much larger and finish it in the oven, then cut it up to serve at room temperature on a picnic.
