Food history: eggs Benedict

In the movie Runaway Bride, Julia Roberts’ character realizes that she has “liked” her eggs however her fiance-at-the-time liked them. In one fantastic scene she makes every type of egg there is to determine what her true preference is.

The verdict? “I love eggs Benedict. I hate every other kind.”

That may be taking it a bit too far, but I do absolutely adore eggs Benedict. Next to the Reuben sandwich, I would say it’s actually my favorite meal of all time.

  • 1/2 cup mushrooms, chopped
  • 1/4 cup onion, chopped
  • olive oil
  • 5 eggs, beaten
  • splash of milk
  • 2 1/2 cups shredded Muenster cheese*
  • salt and pepper

*I had sliced, so I chopped it.

Five cheese veggie omelette

Disclaimer: This is a packed, bad ass omelette. By all means, reduce the amount of stuff in it to your preferences or what you have on hand.

I consulted Wiki How’s 4 Ways to Cook an Omelette before making this.

Also please note, the amount of cheese has been estimated; I really just threw everything in there.

Ingredients:

  • 4 eggs
  • splash of milk
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 oz shredded Cheddar cheese*
  • 1 oz shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 oz shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 2 slices American cheese
  • 2 slices Swiss cheese
  • 3 vegetables, chopped – (I used tomatoes, onions, and green bell peppers; mushrooms or broccoli would also be good)

*I always use Kraft’s triple Cheddar cheese – sharp, mild, and white Cheddar – so really, this is an seven cheese omelette. Wow.
