Spinach & Artichoke Omelette + Lékué Omelet Maker

March 19, 2014

Yes I am aware I spelled “omelette/omelet” differently in the title of this post. I spent way too long researching the correct way to spell it and in the end gave up. For the record, it’s derived from French so it really should be “omelette” but I’m also doing a review of an “omelet” maker so you’re just gonna have to roll with me on this…

I’ve decided I could never date somebody who cooks. If my significant other ever tried to boss me around in the kitchen then we would have one serious problem on our hands. The kitchen is my happy place, but that doesn’t mean I can’t become a total bossy-pants if someone tries to take over.

spinach and artichoke omeletteOn the first night I met C he told me he could cook. I was impressed but also a little worried about how we’d manage having two cooks in the kitchen (yes I was thinking about our future on night #1). This never ended up being a problem because I quickly discovered that C’s “go-to dish”, Brie and Mango Chutney was actually just store-bought chutney on top of a wheel of brie. I can legitimately hear C yelling at his computer claiming he is so much more capable as I type this.

True, my man is much more capable. He is the king of eggs. This I appreciate because like my pancake flipping skills, eggs are not my strong suit. I can just barely scramble eggs let alone make an omelette! Perfect segue into…my new Lékué Omelet Maker! This thing is seriously amazing. I can go from egg carton to table in under 3 minutes. Winning!

lekue-omelet-cooker3Before you go all “microwaves will kill you” on me, I’ll tell you to shut off your computer and throw your cell phone out the window. Glad we got that out of the way. Now I can tell you about my awesome new toy. Basically you throw everything into this 100% platinum silicone mould (BPA free too!), stick it in the microwave and zap, omelette.

Pretty cool right? I don’t need no man to cook my eggs (okay that sounded bad…) with my Lékué Omelet Maker!

    I would buy that omelette (CORRECT WAY OF SPELLING) purely for the name. Lekue. That just sounds amazing. (I don’t know how to do those fancy accents on the vowels. #computerfail).

    My egg making skills are epic. Even microwaved ones. Just not hard boiled. Never find the happy balance there.

    My mom gave me an electrical omelet maker – same concept as the Lekue – as what I intend to be an omelet turns into scrambled eggs when I begin flippin!

    I don’t need no man to cook my eggs!! YES!! LOL.
    I like to own my kitchen. Sandro is always teasing my by joining in and saying ‘I really like that we are so close together in the kitchen now. So fun and cozy, right?’ and I start swearing. So yes, my kitchen must be ALL MINE.
    I need this omelette maker. I actually was called the Omelette Queen before so it will look like I betray my pan and readers, but this is so quick…..and so perfect for my crazy life!

    I have a really weird texture thing with eggs in that they always need to be scrambled up (with stuff mixed in, never plain!). Because of that, I only know how to make scrambled eggs.
    Riley is the real cook in our house as I’m sure you know. I’m totally happy to give up the kitchen controls so I don’t have to do it!

    Oh I love some fancy microwave cooking appliances – they make my life so much easier. Jays mom recently used a similar thing to make omelettes in the microwave and they were super delicious. What I also love to do is making a steamed egg in a bowl. Reminds me that I did not have a good egg dish in a while and I should really make one soon!

    I am pretty much a solo cook, although John pitches in from time to time. It’s actually great for us that I finally decided to shoulder this responsibility. Everyone in our families knew (or found out) when we were first dating that I didn’t cook. It became the constant line of questioning: “But, who cooks?” “But, if you get married, who will cook?” “But, how do you eat?” Relatives were legitimately convinced that this fact alone was enough to doom the relationship. For the record, we did just fine. We both had super low standards for meals, so we happily ate what can only be described as college food until about a year ago when I started really cooking consistently.

    I want this omlette maker except Miguel would get mad because he is the omelette king…..supposedly. As far as two cooks in the kitchen goes, that’s usually not a problem because he is in charge of breakfast and I do all the other cooking–and I am more than ok with that!

    It’s always been ‘omelette’ to me :-p And Eric is definitely not a cook. When we first started dating he would actually make us omelettes and he can make a good stirfry, but once we moved in together he happily handed the reins over to me…which is fine, because I work best solo :-p

    Thanks for making me smile this morning! Loved that you wrote you could never be with someone that could cook or tried to cook as much as you! TOTALLY can relate. It sounds good for about a second and then when you envision someone telling you what to do in the kitchen…oofta, not good. I would not like that! This omelette sounds nothing short of amazing! Seasonal and delicious. Thanks for sharing! Pinned 😉

    I eat eggs probably once/month or less, but this omelet looks tasty! My husband and I switch on and off with cooking most nights, but there are a few meals we cook together, or he does the prep work and I do the cooking. I’m pretty good at making eggs most of the time, but my husband makes killer omelets!

    I could go for one of those! Does it clean easily afterwards? Whenever I try and microwave eggs they always seem to stick on the bowl terribly. I think it takes me more time to scrub the container than it does to just cook an egg on the stove!

    And wow, I love this recipe! Artichoke is one of the yummiest things to grace the Earth and I can’t get enough of it. Also, I’d love it if Greg was a great cook/baker, but when I have someone else other than myself in the kitchen I get stressed. I think it goes back to the way my mom was in the kitchen, so I’m the same way…It has to do with who does what and when, because I’m terrible at delegating things so I’m just like, “I’ll just do it”. Oops. However, if I have one of my girlfriends who’s a champ at baking, then I actually have a blast. 😀

    I wished my man could (or would) cook – I think he doesn’t venture on purpose. I don’t like the burden on my shoulders always.
    My omelette skills though are egg-celent! I love making omlettes, frittatas, scrambles. But I’d like me one of those omelet makers to make my life even easier.
    Your recipe gave me the idea of using TJ’s spinach artichoke dip in an omelette !

    I am a solo cook because I am a control freak. I did supervise J making hummus though because last time he tried to make his own he used uncooked chickpeas and when he showed me his “tahini” it was a jar of sesame seeds. He is good at making guac though so whatever, I’ll deal.

    I actually saw this at Sur La Table and thought about buying it… I am dying at the microwave comment. I hate people that say that. Also I hate that in NYC no one has a microwave or toaster. Like how can I make toast?

    Oh also – this has all of my favorite things (eggs, artichokes and spinach). I also think I remember you and C telling me about his mango chutney brie haha…

    What a great idea to put spinach AND artichoke in an omelette. I’m so trying this. I do like “omelette” better than “omelet”— it’s cuter when it’s French.

    Also I always thought I only like guys who can cook, but JZ can’t even cook an egg hahaha. I actually kind of like it though because it means he doesn’t really notice if I cook something that’s a bit sub par – no matter what, he still thinks it’s great. 😛

And just out of curiosity is “cooking your eggs” a new kind of slang that I’m not privy to? Because I just thought you called it sex! Lmao!
