Open Face Omelet

If you follow the blog, you already know that I like to make kid-friendly fare but I try to be as adventurous as possible. In other words, I don’t do straight kiddie meals. Except maybe this once. I woke up with this idea and I was so excited about it that I actually let my kid watch TV instead of cooking with me. I tiptoed into the kitchen and prepared the omelet and then surprised him with it on the sofa. He was SO EXCITED that he actually took his eyes off the TV. (That’s H-U-G-E.) He ate it in 2 minutes flat and then asked to make his own Open Face Omelet.

We cooked the second omelet together and then I set out a bunch of different veggies for him to chose from. He went to town adding far more facial features than I included on my face. Eating the “parts” of the face were especially thrilling! To my kid this was the best breakfast ever. I was just as satisfied having delivered an awesome surprise and enjoying the simple pleasure of it all. Now for the recipe…
