One of the hard parts about a traditional diet for me is keeping up with thawing meat. I can sometimes be a quite disorganized person, and don’t use a microwave, so if I forget to transfer my meat to the fridge to thaw the night before, it can cause grumpy babies, not to mention daddies, come dinner time.
After having this happen more times than I would care to mention, I had one of those DUHHH!!! Moments…
Why not eggs?!?
Not breakfast for dinner, but making a wonderful dinner dish with the perfect whole food…In this house, we love making frittatas, quiches, and smoked salmon pudding, but our favorite, “mom forgot to thaw the meat” meal is Mediterranean Omelets with Goat Feta and Tzatziki.
We make ours with our favorite goat ricotta from Amaltheia Organic Dairy here in Bozeman, and top them with homemade Garlic and Sweet Basil Tzatziki which, lately I have been making with my homemade raw milk crème fraîche…mmm.
What’s even better??? They take less than 25 minutes to make!
- 4 TBS butter
- 12 whole pastured eggs
- ¼ cup heavy cream
- 3 tsp sea salt (to taste
- ½ teaspoon crushed black peppercorns(to taste)
- ½ bunch chives, finely chopped
- 2 TBS italian parsley, finely chopped
- 12 halved cherry tomatoes
- 12 chopped kalamata olives or cured olives
- 4-6 oz goat feta or ricotta
- Whisk the eggs and heavy cream until incorporated and foamy. Add salt and black pepper to taste
- Preheat the pan to medium high heat and add 1 TBS of butter to coat the bottom of the pan. Turn down the heat to medium. Add about a ¼ of the mixure to the pan, and swirl to get the eggs evenly distributed on the bottom of the frying pan. Let the eggs cook for up to a minute or until the bottom starts to set.
- When the omelet slides easily on the surface of the pan, carefully flip the eggs over(i know…this is the hardest part).
- Now is the time to add your cheese, herbs, olives and tomatoes.
- Flip one side of the omelet over and across the other side, so that the edges of the omelet match up.
- Gently transfer to a serving plate,and garnish with more herbs, cheese, or avocado and homemade tzatziki.
- Repeat with the other three omelets, and dinner is served!
