How to cook Pinoy Omelet with a Dash of Gourmet
Pinoy Omelet Gourmet Style – Filipino Omelet has always been a part of Filipino breakfast. It is usually in-pair with Beef Tapa, Tocino, Longganisa (Hamonado, Lucban, Skinless), or Tuyo (dried fish). This recipe will share the traditional Pinoy Omelet with added ingredients to make it more delicious and mouth-watering.
The usual Pinoy Omelet is just egg, red onion, and ripe tomatoes, but I’ll teach you how you can make it gourmet with a few added ingredients!
In cooking this dish, we used our new Lock&Lock Hard&Light Marble Frying Pan that is newly-launched. This cookware is perfect for cooking small portions of food. This light-weight fry pan is made using Aluminum Board Hard Anodizing with High-grade, two-tone Dupont marble coating that is easy to clean and lasts long. The hard anodizing makes it sturdy and robust for lasting use. It is excellent for an induction heater, but you can use it on a gas stove.
The handle is rubber-coated that can give an excellent grip. You can find this in Lock & Lock Boutique Stores (see below) and leading supermarkets nationwide or visit their Facebook page (fb.com/LocknLockPhilippines).
Another good thing about using this piece of cookware, you don’t need to use cooking oil when you are frying. Grab your ingredients and utensils, and let’s start cooking this Pinoy Omelet Gourmet style!
