Vegetable Omelette

Published January 18, 2016 by Ninik Becker

The 4 worst things about being an Egg :

You only get hard once

You only get laid once

You only get eaten once

The only one who sits on your face is your mother !

 

I found this quotes printed in a cap/hat somewhere, have no idea who is the original author.

 

Talk about an egg, I like to have a hot breakfast, something that can make quickly, savory and delicious and good-looking as well. How cool is that ?

Less than 15 minutes including preparation until finished, if you move fast. If you are doing slow motion than will be different.

And now let’s make this

 

 

Serve with toasted bread if you prefer.

The plate was empty less than 15 minutes too !
