My May Good Morning Recipes

Gouda & Sage Omelette

When thinking about gluten free breakfasts it is easy to forget that many of the foods we eat are naturally gluten free, like eggs, cheese, milk and herbs.  This delicious omelette shows that there need not be a sacrifice for gluten allergies.

2 tsp butter
4 eggs
2 tbsp cream
1 tbsp water
1 tsp dried sage or 2 tbsp chopped fresh sage leaves*
1/4 cup grated gouda (or hard cheese)
mineral salt & pepper to taste

  1. Melt the butter in a small omelette pan.
  2. Combine remaining ingredients and add to the pan.  Allow to set for 10-20 seconds before using a spatula to push the egg toward the center of the pan. Allow the unset egg mix to run into the space created. Continue pushing into the middle until almost set.
  3. Fold omelette in half, divide in two and serve.

Makes: enough for two people
Takes: 5 minutes
Costs: $3.45

Tip: If you are not sure of your non-stick pan it can help to leave the cheese out until just before serving.
Fresh sage is available most of the year in New Zealand supermarkets.
