Mini Cheesy Egg Omelette 迷你乳酪蛋饼

My duo reject mushrooms till today, be it button mushrooms, brown mushrooms, Shiitake or oyster mushrooms. The only way to get them to eat is by cutting it really fine and add into sauce or patty. So  mommy has to play tricks again. 

I made them these simple cheesy egg omelette with mixed vegetables, mushrooms and cheddar cheese. Using the BBQ egg rings allow me to achieve perfect round, this forgetful mind only remember the newly bought gadget half way thru cooking. 

Serving for my little handsome, with the ingredients from the sweet corn pork ribs soup (pumpkin, pork ribs, tofu and sweet corn make really nice soup!)

Making these Omelete into mini size allows the little hands to grab and eat, hence making dinner more fun for them. My elder had 3 slices of these while my younger was more interested with the pearl sweet corn on Cobb. Anyway, so long they are eating well and happy, the mission is complete.

Preparation Time: 5 min 
Cooking Time: 10 min
Serving for: 12 mini omelette

3 medium eggs
1 slice cheddar cheese (or more), cut into small squares 
1/4 cup carrot cut into cubes 
1/4 cup fresh mushroom cut into cubes 
1/4 cup French beans cutlets
1/4 cup pumpkin cut into cubes
2 table spoons bread crumbs 
Few leaves of fresh basil, chopped 

The fresh basil and rosemary in my garden, side by side with my lemon grass.

The Making:

1. Mix all chopped veges and mushrooms in a bowl, set a side.

2. Beat the eggs till fluffy, add a dash of salt, pepper to taste, and toss in the basil leaves. Pour it over the vege mix, add the cheese and bread crumbs, then stir to mix well.

3. Add a tablespoon of olive oil into the pan, spread it out evenly; brush the egg rings with some oil, then put them into the pan with about 2" apart. 

4. Using a spoon, slowly pour the egg mixture into the egg ring. If you don't have an egg ring, just do it free style, about 3 spoonful will do. 

5. Cook the Omelete about 4 minutes on each side, or until it turns golden brown. Before flipping the Omelete, slowly remove the ring by using the spoon to  push the it downward slowly.

Garnish and serve warm. Bite, tear, or cut neatly, the choice is yours. :)
