French Toast Omelet

When we began the SCD, I knew I was going to have to find some exciting things to eat to keep some interest here.  We are from Southwest Louisiana, Cajun Country, and food is a big deal here.  We have our own brand of food that is unique and flavorful.  Pretty much of an event in itself.  Actually, this particular recipe came to me as I was making breakfast blintzes off of the Pecanbread website.  French Toast was always a favorite here and it was devastating to think we might have to give up that delicious Louisiana favorite.

Well not to worry here it is in the form of an omelet.

We used this recipe pretty early on in the diet.  We finished our 3 days of intro and began moving through the stages.  But found he did well with this recipe about in the second week.  When I gave this to Jacob he smiled and said' "Well if this is the kind of stuff I get to eat, this diet is going to be great!"

French Toast Omelet

1/2 cup Farmer's Cheese (DCCC)
1/4 - 1/8 tsp Cinnamon
1/4 tsp legal vanilla
1/2 tsp honey

2 eggs
1/8-1/4 tsp legal vanilla
1/8-1/4 tsp cinnamon
pat or real butter for pan
extra honey for drizzling

In a small bowl, mix together all ingredients for filling and set aside.  In a cup or small bowl, scramble eggs with the vanilla and cinnamon. Make sure that your vanilla and cinnamon are without additives before you use them.  Heat a pan on low heat.  I use a gas stove and heat my pan on a 2 setting.  Put about 1 1/2 -2 tbs butter in the pan and let it melt and coat the pan.  Pour the egg mixture into the pan and let set.  You will notice the eggs looking almost cooked through and at this point you will want to use a thin spatula to loosen the egg. A thin metal spatula works best because the omelet is delicate and difficult to slip a bulkier spatula in between it and the pan without tearing it.  Make sure it is set enough also to allow you to flip it with out tearing.  Flip egg and turn off stove.  Place filling down the middle of egg in the form of a log length wise.  Flip one side of the egg over the cheese then slip the spatula under the eggs and cheese to roll the omelet over wrapping around the cheese mixture. Remove the omelet from pan, place on a plate and drizzle with desired amount of honey.

Once you try the omelet you may want to change it up by reducing the amount of cheese.  Just make sure if you do to adjust the amount of cinnamon, vanilla and honey.

I have some other more advanced French Toast recipes to post later that are soooo scrumptious.  We actually think they are better than the original!
