Kale and Onion Flip Omelette

Omelettes and other egg dishes are very versatile, as you can throw in whatever cheese, veggies, or meat you have left over in your fridge. Don’t be afraid to experiment with this delicious recipe and toss in additional local ingredients!

Ingredients

  • 6 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 150 g of cheese, grated (any kind of cheese you like – feta works nicely)
  • 2 medium onions, chopped
  • about 3 cups sliced kale
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • salt + ground black pepper

Directions

In a medium skillet (easier to do if you use a quality non-stick pan), melt 2 tablespoons of butter, and cook the onions on medium heat until they are soft, for about 5-7 minutes.
Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter, the kale and season with salt.
Cook the kale for an additional 5 minutes, stirring often.
Meanwhile, whisk the eggs with the cream and season them with salt and pepper.
Once the kale is done, spread the onion-kale mixture evenly in the bottom of the pan.
Add the cheese on top, and pour the eggs over.
Cover, lower the heat to low, and let cook for 10-15 minutes, until the eggs are set.
Flip over onto a plate, slice, and serve.
