  •  Omelet toast (6+ / 0-)

    not sure what else to call it.

    Take some toast, crumble, run some hot water over it, and then mix it in a bowl with a couple of eggs. Heat an omelet pan or skillet, add a bit of olive oil, and pour the mixture into the pan, add salt and pepper to taste.

    When it starts to get firm, put a couple tablespoons of cottage cheese or salsa or sour cream or left over chopped up warmed whatever on one side of the egg/toast mixture, and fold the mixture over the filling. Continue cooking until the bottom is firm, then turn it over and cook the other side. Turn it carefully, because it tends to break easily.

    I threw this together because the only thing in the house one day was eggs, bread and cottage cheese. I've made this using middle eastern flat bread, pita bread, water crackers and matzo bread. I haven't tried it with saltines yet, because I rarely have saltines, but I imagine it would work if you don't add any extra salt.

      You've recreated the favorite Passover breakfast food, made with Matzoh.  But then you get the "sweet" faction (serve with cinnamon/sugar) and the "savory faction (serve with salt and pepper).  Good stuff.

        inspired this dish. But I really did run out of Matzoh, and substituted some left over toast. Worked so well I started experimenting with other bread/cracker like food items.

        Maybe I should call it Toast Brie, Cracker Brie, Flatbread Brie... ?

        I am personally in the savory faction when it comes to Matzoh Brie.
