Spanish Omelette


Spanish Omelette

Hungry for breakfast?……Try an omelette. Its a quick and easy breakfast as you can add anything you want. My one is chorizo sausages, onions, capsicum herbs and spices plus my favourite garlic bread matched with a cup of coffee. This is a perfect breakfast for me…Yummm:……………Did you know that eggs are a very good source of inexpensive, high quality protein. More than half the protein of an egg is found in the egg white along with vitamin B2 and lower amounts of fat and cholesterol than the yolk. The whites are rich sources of selenium, vitamin D, B6, B12 and minerals such as zinc, iron and copper. Egg yolks contain more calories and fat.

Ingredients:

3 eggs with 1/4 cup of cream, slices of sausages, onions, capsicum, salt and pepper, chopped parsley and chili flakes. must try…………

Warm and Spicy Steak Salad……… Winter is coming, so I am thinking of a hot and spicy minute steak with a bunch of green salad. This is a very quick recipe that you can add to your menu as a “main dish” as it is served already with garlic bread and a poached egg….It is very simple, fast and easy to make. All you need is some green salad, garlic bread, a sizzling hot pan with olive oil then drop your thinly sliced sirloin steak and seasoned with sweet chili sauce. In less than 5 minutes, you will have a “power protein and healthy salad meal…..Must try!!!!
