Omelette Update!

Alex had to go out early again tonight and decided that not only did he want to cook his own dinner, but he wanted to experiment with omelettes some more. Last night we had eaten real comfort food - sausage and onion sandwiches on ciabatta - and there were two cooked sausages left over. So the omelette evolved from there...and here it is!

Alex's Amazing Sausage and Caramelised Onion Omelette
Serves 1 hungry young man
or 2 folks with smaller appetites!
3 eggs
1 tablespoon milk
1 tablespoon oil
1 medium red onion, peeled and cut in slices
1 tablespoon white sugar
2 cooked sausages, cut in thin slices
Beat the eggs with the milk and set aside. Heat the oil in a small oven-safe frying pan. When it is hot, fry the onion slices until softened. Sprinkle with the sugar and continue to fry until nicely caramelised. Pour over the eggs and push them round in the pan until they begin to set and "catch". Sprinkle the sausages over top. Cook until the bottom of the omelette appears to be going a nice golden colour when you lift the edge using a spatula. Place the pan under a hot grill until the top is puffy and golden. Serve and enjoy!
I tasted this and it was just incredibly delicious. I'm hoping Alex will make one for me too next time! It would make a super brunch dish. I'm loving this - we are making family food memories of our own now!
