Onion Omelet

Recipe Summary

Recipe Servings: 1 portions
Recipe Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Recipe Cook Time: 10 minutes


4 eggs
5 ounces fresh onion
2 tablespoons Lucini® Premium Select Extra Virgin Olive Oil®
2 tablespoons Lucini® 10 Year Gran Riserva Balsamico


Beat eggs; set aside.


Cut the onion into thin slices or chop roughly and heat in pan with the oil until it softens without changing color.


Add a pinch of pepper to the beaten eggs, mix well and transfer to the frying pan.


When you can see from the edges that the under-side is done, turn over. The omelette must never seem overdone or burnt, but must have a pale golden color. The strong flavor of the onion will contrast with the mild taste of the egg, backed up by the balsamic vinegar. This is why a small spoonful of balsamic vinegar must be poured over the omelette as soon as it has been transferred from the frying pan to a well-heated plate. Thanks to its unforgettable flavor and aroma, no one will remember that this dish does not contain any salt.
