Omelet with blue cheese and avocado
pinch of freshly-ground nutmeg
sea salt to taste
freshly-ground black pepper to taste
15 ml mild olive oil for frying
3 sprigs thyme, leaves only
50 g blue cheese, thinly sliced
1 avocado, peeled, halved, and sliced
4 slices black bread
Beat the eggs, nutmeg, salt, and pepper in a bowl with a fork.
Heat the oil in a pan, add thyme and heat on medium for 5 minutes. Add the eggs and leave for 10 seconds without touching them. When the edges begin to shrivel, gently push them into the centre with a fork, tipping the pan so the liquid egg can run into the sides. Do that on all the edges and the middle will flow into the sides.
When all the liquid has been tipped to the sides, turn off the heat and let sit for 1 minute. Place the cheese on one half, fold the over half over, top with avocado, and serve with black bread.
