Chanterelle Omelet

omletteWe’re featuring wild-picked chanterelle mushrooms this week that are hand-picked by our picker in Springfield, LA. These TWO recipes were developed and tested in conjunction with Red Stick Spice Company. First up is this classic rolled omelet that may be a breakfast staple, but we’d eat this one any time of the day. Rich chanterelles are lightly sautéed in butter with a little salt. This makes for a quick, yet decadent, meal on the go. Pair it up with some toasted bread and a side salad to make a complete dinner for the family in less than 15 minutes.

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes

Ingredients (You can buy all the ingredients for a Chanterelle Omelet Here: http://bit.ly/ChanterelleOmelet)

1 cup fresh chanterelles roughly chopped
1 Tbl butter
1/2 tsp salt
2 eggs
2 tsp water
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup cheddar cheese

Directions
1. Melt the butter over medium heat in a sauté pan. Saute the chanterelle mushrooms in the butter for 3-5 minutes, just until lightly wilted and softened. Season with salt.
2. Move mushrooms to a plate. Wipe out the pan and place over medium-low heat.
3. Whisk the eggs with the water and salt.
4. Spray the pan with nonstick cooking spray and add the eggs.
5. Gently lift the eggs around the edges, tilting the pan to move uncooked egg underneath the cooked portion. Keep doing this until the center of the eggs are fairly firm.
6. Place the cheese and sautéed chanterelles down the center of the eggs about 1 inch from the edge–reserve some of the chanterelles to place on top of the cooked omelet.
7.Using a spatula, begin rolling the omelet until the seam is on the bottom. Continue cooking until the omelet is firm and cooked though.
8. Move to a place and cut a slit in the center of the omelet. Place the reserved chanterelles on top and serve.

Pita, mushrooms, cheese. That pretty much sums up this recipe. We used wild chanterelles to top this, but the possibilities are endless. Keep these ingredients on hand (pita freeze well), and you’ll have a fun, customizable project for kids. Teens can do this on their own for a snack or a meal, and maybe you’ll get dinner out of the deal!

Some Tips

  • If you like thin crusts, slice the pita horizontally across. This doubles your servings AND makes the pizza super crispy! Reduce baking times by 30%.
  • Adding chopped bacon (cooked), caramelized onions, fresh tomatoes, chopped garlic and/or fresh basil adds additional layers of flavor to the pizza and allows you to customize each pita pizza for each member of the family. Everybody gets what they want!
