Classic Turkish Western Omelet Recipe

Ingredients

  • 2 ripe plum tomatoes, seeded and coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 cup diced feta cheese
  • 1 oz (30 g) pastrami, cut into 1/2-inch dice
  • 2 tablespoons coarsely chopped red onion
  • 2 tablespoons flat-leaf parsley, plus 2 teaspoons chopped,for garnish
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1/8 cup (30 ml) milk
  • salt and coarsely ground black pepper to taste
  • 4 teaspoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons non-fat plain yogurt,for garnish

Method

Step 1

Combine the tomatoes, feta, pastrami, onion, and 2 tablespoons of the parsley in a small bowl. Mix well and set aside.

Step 2

Melt 2 teaspoons of the butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until it foams. Pour in half of the egg mixture and stir the eggs gently until they begin to set. Stop stirring; run a spatula around the side of the skillet and shake the pan slightly to loosen the omelet from the bottom of the pan.

Step 3

When the eggs are cooked to desired doneness(I prefer them slightly loose), spoon half of the filling onto the omelet and then roll it out onto a plate. Repeat the process to make a second omelet. Dollop each omelet with a tablespoon of chopped parsley.
