Before you get cooking, make sure your hands are washed and clean.

You’ll need:

  • 2 slices white bread
  • 2 teaspoon margarine
  • ¼ onion
  • 2 strips bacon
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 6 mushrooms
  • 1 small tomato
  • 1 tablespoon powder creamer
  • 2 large eggs
  • Salt and pepper
  • ½ cup grated cheese

Now to put all this yumminess together!

  • Step 1: Heat a large pan over a medium heat.
  • Step 2: Cut a large rectangle out of each bread slice against the crusts.
  • Step 3: Spread margarine over the crusts and inside squares on both sides.
  • Step 4: Melt the remaining margarine in the pan. 
  • Step 5: Sauté the onion and bacon in the margarine for about 4 minutes.
  • Step 6: In the meantime, add the Cremora Original to the eggs and whisk until blended. Step 7: This will ensure a super creamy egg. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Step 8: Add the garlic and mushrooms and sauté for another 2-3 minutes.
  • Step 9: Add the tomato and cook for another minute, stirring occasionally.
  • Step 10: Shape the vegetable-and-bacon mixture into two rectangles in the pan and place the bread crusts over them, encasing the mixture.
  • Step 11: Slowly pour the egg mixture into the bread rectangles and over the vegetable-and-bacon mixture and allow to cook for about 2-3 minutes, until the egg has set at the bottom.
  • Step 12: Sprinkle the grated cheese over the egg, cover with the cut-out rectangles of bread and flip them over carefully.
  • Step 13: Allow to cook on the other side for about 2-3 minutes.

When it’s finished cooking, ask an adult to put your yummy cheesy omelet breakfast nest onto a plate. You can enjoy it with a bit of sliced avocado and chutney. So delicious!

Happy cooking, squad members!
