A wholesome meal, this home-made egg omelette baby food recipe is simple and easy to make. The cheesy topping adds a lovely sticky and gooey texture that your baby will love. Follow this step-by-step guide to make a healthy breakfast:
- Combine the eggs, salt, and pepper in a bowl and whisk well with a fork.
- Add the onions, tomatoes, capsicum, and green chillies and mix well.
- Heat the butter in a pan. Let the butter melt and spread it evenly all around the pan.
- Pour the egg mixture as soon as the butter melts.
- Cook on a medium flame for about 2 minutes.
- Once you see the sides getting cooked (turning golden brown and coming off the pan), flip the mixture to the other side and cook for 2 more minutes.
- Once cooked, sprinkle the cheese and dried herbs over the omelette.
- Fold the omelette into a semi-circle and cook lightly on a low flame for about 30 seconds.
- Serve immediately with bread slices or ketchup.
- The dish tastes better with vegetables and is healthier. You can add vegetables of your choice, and your baby wouldn’t even realise he ate some.
- Whisk the eggs well until they froth. If the eggs are whisked well, the omelette will turn out soft.
- You can opt to skip the dried herbs if you want. But, adding them will give a nice aroma and flavour to the omelette.
- You can also choose to skip the cheese, but adding the cheese will make it tastier, and your kid will like the creamy texture.
- You can add a dash of milk to the mixture before making the omelette as it tends to make it richer in taste.
