Dinner tonight was light, since we ate a late Sunday lunch with Per's sister, brother and his girlfriend who were visiting Titus on his one-month birthday. Delicious chicken cous-cous, but I forgot to take a photo - I have leftovers, so I'll try to snap a pic of those tomorrow. Anyway, dinner.
We had a fluffy omelette - fluffy, because the egg whites are beaten separately and then combined with the yolks. The whole thing is baked in the oven, which makes it puff up nicely. It's much like a frittata, by the way. And it goes without saying that you can add just about anything to this. We had cherry tomatoes and chèvre cheese, which was excellent.
8 cherry tomatoes, halved
100 g chèvre cheese, crumbled
1 tbsp parmesan, grated
Preheat the oven's grill to 250°C.
Separate the eggs into yolks and whites. Mix the yolks with the parmesan. Whisk the egg whites until nice and fluffy - not stiff like for meringue, but decidedly fluffy. Whisk the egg yolks, and then combine the two into one bowl.
Heat the olive oil in a skillet and add the eggs. Fry for a minute, then top with the tomatoes and cheese. Place the whole thing in the oven and bake for five minutes, or until it looks golden and fluffy. Serve straight away.
