Barry thinks there is a conspiracy going on here…a cottage cheese conspiracy. See, his wife LOVES cottage cheese. Oh, by the way…his wife is me, in case you didn’t know. And yes, I love cottage cheese. I’m known to put it into anything and everything. You’ll find it in shakes, smoothies, ice cream, brownies, and now even my omelets. Booya.
Before you go screaming and running from the room – hear me out. Cottage cheese is awesome. Even Barry, who is a professed cottage cheese HATER, doesn’t know when I put it in stuff. It gives a lovely, light and delicious flavor…even in your omelets. Even Barry thought these were very good – so did I! I think they’ll be a regular around here. 🙂
Although, now Barry often asks before he takes a bite, “Is there cottage cheese in this?” I always give him the dumb look. I only tell him later. I think he secretly likes cottage cheese and won’t admit it.
This week in Cooking Through Stacy’s Stash we’re tackling a fun one – my cookbook from Disney World! Woot, woot! Cooking With Mickey (Pssst! Big Brother! That’s my affiliate link!) was a gift from Barry’s Aunt Judy and Mamaw Sue…they know I adore my cookbooks, and this one is pretty awesome. It’s got Disney recipes from all over the park. I love looking through it, even though there are no pictures.
This particular recipe was called Egg Coronado, which I lovingly renamed Cottage Cheese Omelet – Coronado sounded too fancy to me. 😉 This recipe is from the Concourse Grill at Disney’s Contemporary Resort. I never ate there when we went – we stayed at the All Star instead and didn’t do much hotel hopping.
I scaled this recipe back to one serving – because I like one serving recipes…and omelets are easier to make one at a time, in my humble opinion. I also cut out the horseradish because it makes me want to yak. Barry likes it…he likes horseradish but not cottage cheese. Does anyone else see something weird about that?
I use my little 6 inch pan when I make omelets. I get it nice and buttery and then fry away…in case you have never made omelets, one of my first blog posts ever was about how to make an omelet. I won’t go into that here – because we have a link up to get to! Just make an omelet however you know how.
These were very good – I served them on a Sunday morning, because we like a hearty Sunday breakfast before we go to church – helps me concentrate. It’s hard to listen to a sermon when my belly is growling and disrupting everybody. I like the beauty and simplicity of omelets, don’t you?
I served these with a side of my Quick Almond Pan Bread and some berries. Yummorama – that’s my new word. Let’s start a revolution.
