The food we cook is often a way of connecting with those we love.
In this case, the following recipe always reminds me of my Dad because he would make us this for us s a special weekend treat. So eating this always brings a smile to my face.
This is a Chinese style omelette – it’s not folded neatly in half and stuffed with filling as the French ones. This one is meant to be gloriously haphazard and messy.
2 eggs, beaten with a dash of milk
Half a small onion or 1 spring onion, finely sliced
1 Chinese sausage
Small cubes of tasty cheese
Re-hydrate Chinese sausage by steaming it for a few minutes. I find that the sausage burns before it heats through properly if I put it in the pan without steaming.
Preheat frying pan and add 1 teaspoon cooking oil. Lightly fry onion on a medium heat until it begins to soften.
Add in beaten eggs then quickly drop in pre-steamed Chinese sausage and cheese.
Cook for one minute or so until it is starting to set and then flip in sections and cook for another minute.
Slide onto a serving plate and garnish with chopped spring onions. Sigh occasionally as you eat.
