From James Reeson Alive and Cooking. This is a memory one as my husband attempted something like this for the kids when I was away on a weekends mothers camp, but his was a disaster. From Debbwl's suggestion I have added strawberries to the recipe but of course you could add other fruit that is in season.
- 4 eggs
- 2 tablespoons cocoa powder (drinking chocolate powder)
- 2 tablespoons chocolate (buttons)
- 6 strawberries (sliced and fanned) (optional)
- Whisk together the eggs and drinking chocolate powder.
- Warm a non-stick pan and pour egg mixture straight in and cook for 3 to 4 minutes.
- Sprinkle over the chocolate buttons and place under a hot grill (broiler) until the buttons and melted.
- Slice and serve.
Very good for breakfast or even dessert! I used Hershey Special Dark cocoa powder and put blueberry preserves inside the omelet (raspberry would be good too)...the hot oozing fruit balanced the chocolate. Step #3 didn't work for me. The chocolate chips started burning before melting and the broiler changed the texture of the omelet. Next time I would put the chocolate chips inside the omelet or just put chocolate sauce on the top. Also I will probably reduce the number of yolks to make it lighter, more like a crepe. Yum!
What a lovely simple decadent brekky treat. I made one omelette using Alpen Blend Drinking Chocolate and then sprinkled with cinnamon chips as I didn't have any choc chips, once melted I topped with the optional strawbs..mmmm delish..Thanks for posting!
This is definitely something different, but it does give us chocoholics a new & interesting vehicle for our needed fix! I didn't have fresh strawberries but did have some beautiful blackberries that I used & that made a nice flavor combo! Thanks for a wonderful new keeper!
