The Spanish omelette is a great energy booster that is rich in protein to kick start your day. If you are ever lost as to what you should prepare for breakfast, this is an easy meal that is healthy and nutritious.
Speaking of breakfast, I hope you aren't skipping this all-important meal of the day. Breakfast is absolutely crucial. Your doctor wasn't kidding when he said that a good day begins with a proper breakfast. There are various reasons for this.
Why is this important, you may ask? When your metabolic rate is high, it means that your body is burning more fat throughout the day. A lack of breakfast means that your metabolism remains low, and you tend to absorb more calories from the food you eat throughout the day.
Our bodies are tuned in such a way that only breakfast helps to boost your metabolism without absorbing too much calories. A general guideline would be to eat at two hours after waking up. After that, there is not much you can do, no matter how healthy your breakfast is.
If a toned body is your desire (which I think is the case for everyone), start the day with a nice breakfast, with...
Add oil to a non-stick pan and turn up the heat. While waiting for the oil to be hot, sprinkle some salt lightly onto the potato cubes. When the oil is hot, add the potato, frying gently. Add in the onion and garlic and continue frying until potatoes are light brown.
Remove from pan and set aside.
Prepare an egg mixture of eggs, a dash of pepper and a pinch of salt. Beat thoroughly for one minute.
Now, on low heat, add your potato cubes. Then carefully pour the egg mixture over them. Leave to cook. Shake the pan and when the egg has cooked somewhat, take a plate, cover your pan, turn it over.
Your omelette should now be on your plate. Slowly slide it back to the pan such that it now cooks the other side. Leave for three to five minutes, then serve.
I like this omelette plain - just potatoes and egg, with a hint of pepper. If you like something more flavourful, you could opt to add capsicums, tomatoes, almost anything you desire really.
I hope you have fun trying out this recipe. I had a problem with getting the omelette onto my pan the first time. Hopefully you will have better luck on your first trial!
