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!

    Bahahaha! Touche on the microwave comment! I like yo style! Baaaaa-ut the question remains…does the OMELETTE end up tasting like a dried out sponge typical of micro-eggs? 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!

    I never really mastered the whole eggs thing. My education on cooking them was scrambling in the microwave. Not the best results. I like to think I improved slightly as I got older but i would much prefer to leave it to the professionals!

    looks delicious and so professional 😉

    Haha, you’re so funny! I can make scrambled eggs but my hubby can’t. My hubby can make eggs over easy and I can’t. Match made in heaven? 😉
    If I didn’t have a microwave I might as well be back in the cave days. 😉
    This omel… egg thing looks delicious! 🙂 I could never spell it right either!

    I need one of these! As much as I pride myself on my cooking skills, I suck at omelettes!

    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. 😛

    I can definitely butt heads with my mom when we’re both cooking in the kitchen. I much prefer to defend my territory when I’m cooking, and I’m happy to let her do the same when she’s cooking (usually..) 😉
    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.

    Oh my gosh you could make “spinach and artichoke anything” and I would fall head over heels in love with it. Plus I love eggs so this looks perfect!
