1 RED BELL PEPPER FINELY DICED

1 YELLOW OR ORANGE BELL PEPPER FINELY DICED

1 ZUCCHINI OR COURGETTE FINELY SLICED WITH THE SKIN

1 SMALL CHERRY TOMATO (OPTIONAL) OR USE A PLUM TOMATO SLICED INTO 6 ROUNDS

6 EGGS WHISKED

1/2 CUP FINELY GRATED CHEESE OF YOUR CHOICE CHEDDAR, GRUYERE, EMMENTHAL

1-2 TEASPOONS HOT SAUCE

1/4 TEASPOON FRESH CRACKED PEPPER

1/2 TEASPOON SALT

2 TABLESPOONS MILK

6 TEASPOONS VEGETABLE OR OLIVE OIL

1 TEASPOON FRESH ITALIAN BASIL LEAVES CHOPPED (OPTIONAL)

Instructions

HEAT 1 TEASPOON OIL IN AN 8 INCH WIDE NON STICK PAN OR HEAVY BOTTOMED SKILLET.

SAUTE EACH VEGETABLE ONE AT A TIME UNTIL SOFT AND FRAGRANT. SPRINKLE EACH VEGETABLE WITH A TINY PINCH OF SALT AS IT COOKS AND ADD A TEASPOON OF OIL FOR EACH VEGETABLE. ITS IMPORTANT TO DRY THE VEGETABLES OUT.

RESERVE EACH VEGETABLE IN A SEPARATE CONTAINER.

WHISK EGGS, MILK, BASIL AND HOT SAUCE TOGETHER. STIR IN EGG PLANT.

POUR REMAINING OIL INTO THE SKILLET AND HEAT ON A LOW FLAME. SWITCH OFF FLAME AND POUR EGGS INTO IT. LET EGGS SETTLE. SPRINKLE WITH CHEESE.

STARTING ON THE OUTSIDE ARRANGE THE SLICED ZUCCHINI IN CONCENTRIC CIRCLES

OVERLAPPING EACH OTHER.

THEN THE DICED AND SAUTEED RED BELL PEPPER AND FORM ANOTHER CIRCLE INSIDE.

FILL THE MIDDLE WITH THE LAST BELL PEPPER. PUT THE TOMATO IN THE MIDDLE.

SPRINKLE WITH CRUSHED BLACK PEPPER.

RETURN TO STOVE AND COOK ON A SLOW FLAME. KEEP COVERED. YOU CAN ALSO BAKE THIS IN A PREHEATED OVEN AT 325F

AS THE BOTTOM OF THE OMELET COOKS USE A SMALL SPOON AND DIP INTO THE BATTER. SHAKES THE SPOON A LITTLE SO THE UNCOOKED BATTER ON TOP DRIBBLES INTO THE BOTTOM. THIS WILL HELP THE OMELET COOK THROUGH.

IF YOU USE AN OVEN THIS STEP IS NOT NECESSARY.

WHEN THE TOP OF THE OMLET LOOKS MOIST BUT ISNT RUNNY. SWITCH OF FLAME. SERVE THE OMLET IN THE SKILLET OR SLIDE IT ONTO A SERVING DISH.

SERVE WITH A GREEN SALAD AND A SLICE OF GOOD QUALITY BREAD LIKE BAGUETTE, BRUN OR GUTLI FOR A COMPLETE MEAL.
