Corn Omelet with smoked mozzarella and basil

Added by: on Nov 5th, 2010
Easy to multiply, utterly simple, and delicious, this flat omelet is especially good when made with smoky mozzarella and fresh corn. And if you aren’t up to inverting the eggs, and all of that, this combination of elements makes terrific scrambled eggs, too. Grilled corn as well as fresh is .. more >

If you’re using new corn, put it in a small skillet with a few tablespoons water and simmer until tender and heated through, a few minutes. Drain, then add it to the beaten eggs and season with a couple pinches of salt, some pepper, and the basil. Stir in the cheese.


Wipe out the pan and melt the butter. When it foams, pour in the eggs and give them a couple of quick stirs around the pan. Cover with the plate you plan to eat from (it will warm it), lower the heat, and cook the eggs until pale gold on the bottom. Slide the omelet onto the plate, invert the pan over it, grasp the whole unit, and flip it over. Slide the omelet back into the pan and cook the second side just until it sets, about a minute. Tip it onto your plate, add a sliced tomato salad, and serve.

Cooks' note:
Should you use fresh rather than smoked mozzarella, dice it, then let it rest on paper towels to release its water; otherwise your eggs will he watery.

Sheer decadence! Sweet summer corn is steamed in its water-soaked husks on the grill, then served with melted basil-infused butter & salt. I love corn & basil together! Melting the butter keeps the corn hot, while steeping the basil in the melted butter infuses the butter with a wonderful summer flavor. You will love this recipe! Serve the corn anything, & we love it served with ..
