I don’t like scrambled eggs, but I like eggs and I like cheese. So what’s a home chef to do?
Why, make what I call the
MILLE-FEUILLE CHEESE OMELETTE!
A “mille-feuille,” which means literally “thousand sheets,” is actually a French pastry that is comprised of many alternating layers of puff pastry and cream and other delicious creamy things like jams and chocolate.
So, as you can probably guess, the mille-feuille cheese omelette is comprised of alternating layers of scrambled eggs and cheese… and other delicious things like spinach and chopped chicken.
If you want to know how to make my mille-feuille omelette,
Before you begin, have on hand a very thin spatula or your feuille might end up looking like this:
1. Over low-medium heat, pour about a third of your egg mixture (I used two whole eggs, one egg white, a bit of water, and a pinch of salt) into the pan and turn the pan to coat the bottom.
2. When it’s almost cooked through, use your thin spatula to flip the omelette once. It’ll be cooked in about three seconds. Move to plate.
3. Spread cheese over first layer while warm.
4. Make a second egg feuille. Add even more cheese and other desired fillings. (I used chopped sautéed chicken breast.)
5. Top with third egg feuille.
6. You’re done! Time to eat!
See how easy that was? Sure, it’s a little more labor-intensive than regular ol’ cheese omelette, but imagine how pretty it would look if it had bits of green blanched spinach!
