Squash Blossom Omelet

Isn't it pretty? Right after I finished making my deep-fried squash blossoms stuffed with basil and cottage cheese, my cousin came over with a bag of freshly plucked squash blossoms from my youngest uncle. Yup, same uncle that gave me that huge batch of squash blossoms earlier. So I had to come up with a few more recipes. I mean, I guess I could have cooked my previous recipes but where's the fun in that? ;) Squash Blossom Omelet For one omelet, you'll need: 3 eggs 4 squash blossoms 1 tblsp milk A pinch of salt A few shreds of cheddar cheese A few sprigs of cilantro Heat a pan on medium heat. Beat 3 eggs with 1 tblsp of milk and a pinch of salt. The milk is purely optional, but I think it makes eggs fluffier. Pour into pan and toss in a few sprigs of cilantro. Lay the squash blossoms on top. I like to put the petals facing outward so they'll look prettier when folded in half. Sprinkle cheddar cheese on top. Cover the pan with a lid so the eggs can cook. Then carefully fold the omelet in half and you'll get this. Enjoy!

    I would except they'd be mush by the time they arrive in Virginia!

    I'm lucky to have an uncle who's growing several different kinds of squashes.

  8. You are quite creative! Hehe, you should write a book...like the ppl who wrote 101 ways to cook ramen. Although you'd prolly be so sick of squash blossoms after making it so much!

  9. Jeannie,
    Heh, I don't think I can come up with 101 ways! I'm sort-of running out of ideas. But I have two more squash blossom recipes left. :)
