Turkey Turkey Bacon Burrito Omelet

September 24, 2009

let me first say: alliteration is awesome

originally, this was called the OG Omelet (which, if you go through past posts, all the way in the beginning, is this omelet minus the turkey bacon) but, i had turkey bacon, so i used it. this is the omelet that “started it all”. so a little back story: my mom was on some sort of crazy diet, my dad was into frozen dinners, i had to fend for myself. i was relying on frozen burritos and turkey sandwiches for most of my meals. out of some stroke of GENIUS i decided to put all it in an omelet and a few omelets later my homie Danielle said i should make a blog out of it. so here we are. in any case, this is the OG Omelet, with a lil’ somethin’ somethin’.

the fact is that this is my go-to omelet. i have never made an omelet with this combo that hasn’t been stellar. the flavors mix almost too well, and now with the turkey bacon combined with the mesquite (a type of smoke flavor) turkey, it just makes it that much heartier. the salty, the spicy, the subtle garlic kick, the hot sauce plus the beany-ness — it is like a finely woven sweater.  i wish i had more to say about this omelet, but really, it’s just awesome. this is my standard.

plus, its one of the easier ones to make.

note: this flip went very well. why? because i was patient. i really let the wrap/eggs cook for a while before flipping, making the burrito shell-like and the eggs much more congealed. this by far was one of the, literally, neatest flips i’ve ever had.

i do believe i still have a few omelets in the proverbial omelet bank, so get ready for some updates soon.

don’t forget, if you have any suggestions, i would be happy to oblidge/take some challenges!

also don’t forget, if you make an omelet, and want me to put it up on the blog, i would be happy to! email killeromelets@gmail.com with a picture and a brief discription/analysis and it will be posted!

The Queens’ Omelet

September 20, 2009

a little while ago i had the distinct pleasure of cooking for some extremely beautiful/talented/hilarious/charming/great-hugging/graceful ladies —  they laughed at me, bullied me, and eventually convinced me to make them all an omelet, but really, it was my pleasure. plus, its always nice to have assistance from individuals with such cooking prowess as they did — shout out to the all of the royalty at 58 Huntington! (sorry for the mess)

aside from the pressure of cooking for an audience that was expecting “the omelet dude” to make them an omelet, this omelet was HUGE — 6 eggs huge to be exactly. lots of peppers, almost an entire onion (excellently cut), and salt/pepper for taste were used for the base ingredients with the eggs. Then, the omelet was filled by cut cherry tomatoes and a hefty amount of mixed grated cheese. after a long cook and a tough flip, out came an omelet only meant for royalty.

good job team, hopefully well do it again sometime soon.

an omelet, truly meant for royalty

a huge omelet, just for the ladies at 58.

Video Submission!

September 2, 2009

so not only have i been neglecting my blog, but i have been neglecting my email (you can reach me at killeromelets@gmail.com).

Joey submitted this link a while ago, showing how treat a lady-friend the morning after — a perfect occasion for an omelet. what a pick up line: “hey girl, i make killer omelets, what are you doing tonight?” if only it was that easy, i would be set!

thanks for the submission dude — good work.

great video, great omelet(s), great soundtrack, check it (for some reason i can’t embed video into wordpress, anybody got any insight?):

Sausage Sweet Potato Burrito Omelet

September 2, 2009

so let me start this post off with saying: sorry it has been so long! i think my last post was somewhere around 3 months ago? Please understand: after staring at a computer screen all day, when i get home all i want to do is NOT stare at a computer screen — i want to stare at a television screen, and zone.

however, the time has come for me to post, it has been long overdue. plus, i have been pressured by the people i work with at Hunter PR (what up Hunterz?). they’re a fun bunch — and always get a good laugh out of my blog (i’m sure some of them will bust my chops tomorrow, and i think the fact that i’m actually writing this will only further it).

update: i got a new job! it’s awesome — great clients (i’m on the Boys Toys team working for Hasbro, meaning, GI Joe, Transformers, Star Wars and Marvel action figures — really couldn’t think of a better gig for me), great vibes, great co-workers, in the city, plus a kickball team! Playback Clothing was fun, but it was time to move on.

side story: today one of my co-workers made eggs, brought them into work, REHEATED them and then put them on bread (which i do not believe was toasted) to make a sandwich. i asked her what was in it, she said NOTHING (no cheese, no veggies, no nothing — straight up eggs). i didn’t respond, smothered all of my desires to go nuts about her eggs, and i just thought: “time to update the blog.” so here i am. i still have two other omelets in the proverbial ‘omelet bank’, but those will have to wait for another day.

so lets discuss this omelet. it was great, excellent, delicious — however, it was really heavy. the burrito, sweet potatoes and turkey sausage was a great flavor combo, however,  the consistancy of the “orange mush” was really viscous and just sat in my stomach like a ton of…potato and burrito mush. tip for next time: don’t get so intense with the mashing, leave in chunks. i don’t really know if that will help the situation out so much, but i think it was too pureed. provolone: good choice. the creaminess of the provolone mixed with the salty sausage and sweet potatoes really accentuated the omelet as a whole quite nicely.  something big: i usually eat all of my omelets with hot sauce, but not this one. i thought the flavors mixed too well together to taint them with hot sauce. also, although hot sauce usually goes with everything, it does not go well with sweet potatoes. maybe next time i’ll think of a good condiment to go with this? maybe a type of mustard? who knows…suggestions?

mistake: i didn’t flip this omelet. usually i put the ingredients in, add the eggs, and then flip it to make sure both sides get toasty. this time i thought the heat would take care of things, but i don’t think it did for some reason. i guess i got lazy. but it was definitely cooked all the way, just not as thorough as i think i would have like to have been. this also could have added to the ‘heaviness’ of the omelet as a whole. by flipping it, it might have eliminated some of the “water weight” of the omelet, reducing the overall weight.

another minor change: probably should have added a little more salt and pepper, oh well.

overall, i’m happy with this omelet. i thought it was creative, but more importantly, tasty.
