Two omelette recipes plus omelettes for weaning babies/kids

Tonight I cooked a red pepper, onion and potato omelette and it turned out okay!  If a little bland.  So maybe they’re not that difficult.

Thanks Katherine Rose for the top tip about ‘calling it a frittata and embracing (i.e. finishing it off in) the oven’!  Makes it possible just to chuck the egg in and leave it to cook evenly by itself.  Check out this gorgeous and interesting frittata recipe recommended by Katherine:

I’m looking forward to trying it.  I’ve previously made and would recommend the tortilla in Jamie Oliver’s 30 Minute Meals book (possibly my favourite cookery book).  He uses fennel seeds (*an exciting ingredient*) which add an unusual flavour:

Omelettes for weaning babies (and bigger children)

I’ve found omelettes are great for weaning babies who are ready for some texture and enjoy finger food, as you can cut the omelette in to strips and leave them to it.   Babies and older kids seem to like the creaminess of the omelette, which means you can sneak in loads of healthy stuff (such as veg and pumpkin seeds)! My son Freddy devoured a smoked mackerel and spring onion omelette.

  1. Sounds good. My favourite omelettes involve mushrooms, goat cheese (or feta) and a splash of truffle oil. Also works well for scrambled eggs.

  2. Loving your food blog!!! Do you know of any great, kiide friendly dinners i could quickly rustle up when running late from collecting them and they’re screaming due to starvation?!?!?
