Friday Feature: Tri-Fold Omelet and Bubbly... OK Mimosas!

Seriously, who doesn't love a great breakfast?  Now... who doesn't love a great breakfast with wine?  :)  I thought so!

One of my favorite things to wake up to in the morning is when "Johnny Depp" jumps in the kitchen and makes me a tri-fold omelet.  You know what I'm talking about: those perfectly folded and cooked to perfection omelets.  Add a side of mimosa, and you have yourself one awesome day.  [Note: I would suggest this type of breakfast on a weekend when you can drink more than one mimosa.]

The Tri-Fold Omelet
2 to 3 eggs
Cooking Spray (or Butter)
Goodies (veggies, cooked meats, etc.)
Cheese (your favorite kind!)

1) Spray the bottom of a cooking pan with cooking spray.
2) Whisk eggs and milk together.  Cover the bottom of the pan with the eggs so that there is a somewhat thin coating of egg.  Cook until eggs are almost completely done.
3) Add goodies and cheese into the center of the egg.
4) When the cheese melts, fold one side of the egg over the goodies, followed by the second side so that the omelet looks like a tube.
5) Add cheese on top.  It's optional to add the omelet to a slightly warmed stove to melt the cheese.

Food Pairing Options: The Mimosa!
When it comes to wine in the morning, I always opt for the mimosa.  It gives you just enough bubbly for a happy face and a touch of orange juice to make you feel refreshed.  Plus, it compliments the meal well.  :)  Come on... Live a little...

Sparkling Wine (Bubbly!  Get your favorite.  Even an inexpensive bubbly will do here.)
Orange Juice (or if you dislike orange juice, try grapefruit juice)
Wine Flutes

1) Pour sparkling wine into the flute until it fills up about halfway.
2) Top with orange juice.
3) Enjoy!
