Blue Cheese and Apple Omelet

I’ve been playing around with sweet and savory quite a lot lately–savory fruits, sweet veggies and the like. This recipe in particular was inspired by my host mom in Tbilisi. I don’t know her actual recipe, so I’ve been messing around with this for awhile to come up with something similar. I don’t think this is all that close to hers, but it’s really good!

(In other, totally unrelated news, my 90s plates from Goodwill were the ones they had in My So-Called Life)

Ingredients:
1 small apple
2 cloves garlic
black pepper
ground cinnamon
butter

2 eggs
a splash of milk
cream cheese (optional)
Blue Cheese that will melt (I like Cambazola or Blue Brie..especially the Saga brand)

Cube the apple and slice the garlic into chunks slightly smaller than the pieces of apple. Sautee the apple and garlic with the black pepper and cinnamon.

While the apple and garlic are sauteeing, beat together the eggs and milk (and if you choose to use cream cheese, it will make the egg part creamier). I learned that one of the tricks to making a good omelet is to make sure your mixture is thoroughly and smoothly beaten together.

Remove the apple mixture from the pan and put it aside. Add a bit more butter to the pan, and turn the heat up to medium high. When the butter is melted, pour in the eggs and swirl the pan to coat evenly. As you go, lift the edges so the uncooked egg can run under and cook.

When the omelet is mostly firm, place the cheese on top of one half. Add the apple mixture to that half. When the cheese is melted, Slide the omelet out of the pan and onto a plate.

In my opinion, this works equally well as a nice breakfast, or a quick dinner.

Enjoy!
