OK, the weather so far this year has been rubbish – the coldest winter, the wettest spring blah blah blah. The upside to that is that it’s the first time my wild garlic patch has continued to flourish into June.
After a morning in the garden battling the weeds a quick lunch was in order. With little more than a gnarly lump of cheese in the fridge the girls had to come to the rescue. Delia, Pi (Life of not chicken and mushroom) and Frank (yes quite an unusual name for a chicken – Frank Ocean, Agent Orange – orange/ginger chicken……….that’s my other halfs unusual sense of humour for you! ) keep us well stocked in eggs throughout the year until one of them gets broody and upsets the other two. Thankfully that is a rare occurrence.
So the omelette – I’m not going to do a Delia and tell you how to boil an egg, or your Granny how to suck them. My preference for seasoning is a teaspoon of light soy sauce. I briefly sauteed a handful of wild garlic in butter before adding the egg, and then some grated double gloucester cheese before folding. I like the inside to still be slightly runny, however that isn’t for everyone. From field to plate 5 minutes!
