Super Simple Supper

This Bread Crumb Omelet is the perfect simple supper for when you have almost no food in the house. It is simply delicious as described here, with just garlicky-browned breadcrumbs and Cheddar cheese. (I whirl a piece of bread in the blender to get my breadcrumbs.) If you have leftover bits of meat, seafood, or vegetables in the fridge, you can add those, too. But no need.

Here, then, is the recipe, which is based on a recipe from the book In Madeleine's Kitchen by Madeleine Kamman.


1 egg
1/4 t. crushed garlic
1 1/2 T. coarse bread crumbs (use blender)
1/2 T. butter
1-2 T. grated Cheddar cheese
couple T. of fake crab, leftover meat, or veggies, if desired

Mix egg with garlic in small bowl. Set aside. In small non-stick skillet, place bread crumbs and butter. Over medium heat, brown bread crumbs. When crumbs are golden, WORKING QUICKLY, pour egg mixture over, sprinkle with pinch of salt, and STIR once or twice. (If you don't stir right away, you'll end up with scrambled eggs.) When omelet is about cooked -- maybe 30 seconds or so -- add the cheese and anything else you want. Roll and place on a small plate.

Yummy. And garlicky. You may need breath mints later.

Note that it's made of only one egg, so be prepared to make as many as you need to fill up yourself and whatever other stomachs you're responsible to feed. When you add fruit, a salad, roll, it's dinner.

Oh, yum. You had me at garlic and cheese, and also at "when you have almost nothing else in the house" (which has happened more than once after weekend trips).

I am so going to try this!! Eggs and cheese - staples in my house. I seem to go through them quicker than anything else. You know your family is getting larger when your kids start to eat more than you do!!
