How To Make a Perfect Omelet (Bacon & Cheese)

Ever find it hard to make a good omelet? Follow these easy steps and your omelet will be easier than ever! I made a quick bacon and cheese omelet but you can add anything you want! So, here’s how I made mine.

Ingredients:
2 eggs
Milk
Cheese
Turkey Bacon
Salt
Pepper
Tabasco

Directions:
Cook your bacon (or other meat) on the stove over low heat until completely cooked.
Place a small pan on the stove at low heat (about 4) and spray with Pam (or olive oil, coconut oil, etc.)
Crack your eggs into a small bowl and add 1 tablespoon of milk and a pinch of salt and pepper with a dash of Tabasco.
Beat with a fork for about 45 seconds.
Pour into the heated pan and place a large plate over the pan so it covers the pan. (This allows all the egg to cook on top evenly before you add your ingredients).
After about 5 minutes remove the plate and shake the pan to see if the egg still jiggles. Once the egg is set and doesn’t jiggle, add a slice of cheese and cooked bacon to one side of your omelet.
Recover with the plate to allow the cheese to melt and place the heat on low.
After about 2 minutes check to see if the cheese has melted and then flip the empty side of the omelet on top of the other side.
Serve!

Coconut Flour Bread 2.

I tried another coconut bread recipe today for a grilled cheese and avocado sandwich. This bread looks more like a pancakes than my last post of the sliders. It’s a lot softer and complimented the grilled cheese a lot!
Another gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free, paleo-friendly bread.
I got this recipe from: http://www.thrivestyle.com

Ingredients:
2 eggs
2 tablespoons coconut flour
1/8 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp baking powder
1/4 coconut milk (any milk works)
2 pinches of salt

Directions:
Mix all ingredients with a fork.
Let sit in the bowl for a minute so it fluffens up.
Pour two small pancake sized amounts in the pan (after greasing with coconut oil or another substitute) over medium-low heat.
After about 3 minutes check to make sure the bottoms have browned and flip both pieces over.
Top one of the pieces with cheese and other toppings. When bottoms are done just place the remaining piece of bread on top of the cheese sliced bread and serve.

Coconut Flour Sliders

Well, my day started off pretty stressful. I was supposed to meet my friend Medina for lunch because it’s her 20th birthday today! (Happy Birthday Medina!!!!) But unfortunately, my car would not start because I left a light on :/
After the second time of this happening in about 3 months I NOW know to be more careful….oops!
Luckily, I have an amazing grandfather who came over right after work and jump started it for me!
On anther note, I’m trying as hard as I can to remove wheat from my diet because it bothers my stomach and at the same time remove as many grains in general as possible. I have white bread and pasta every once in a while because its easier on my stomach but I would eventually like to remove grains from my diet as a whole.
Since I missed lunch out, I decided to try out a new recipe that I found on Pinterest from the website: http://www.247lowcarbdiner.blogspot.com
The best thing about these sliders? They’re made in the microwave! So simple.

Ingredients:
1 tablespoon coconut flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
Pinch of sea salt
1 egg
2 tablespoons coconut milk
1 teaspoon olive oil

Directions:
Mix together all dry ingredients in a small bowl.
Form a well in the middle and add the egg, milk, and oil.
Mix together with a fork until incorporated.
Let stand for a few minutes so all the liquid incorporates into the dry ingredients.
Take a straight edge mug and spray with cooking spray.
Spoon half of the mixture into the mug, tap on the counter to remove air bubbles, and microwave for 1 minute 5 seconds.
Run a knife around the edges and pop out of the mug. Slice in half like a sandwich and toast!
Repeat with other half of mixture.
Add any fillings you desire.
This is the perfect lunch for non-grain eaters 🙂
