"I hope you don't mind but I made a little brekkie.
You were taking forever in the shower."
–Lucifer, S1, Ep4 "Lucifer" (FOX)
|But prefers cool ranch ;)|
Note: This omelette is based on and inspired by the ingredients we can see in the kitchen scene in season one, episode four. Chloe gets out of the shower and discovers Lucifer, cozy-at-home, making breakfast for them. We see a rectangle omelette in the frying pan. He's got what looks like chopped red peppers on the cutting board, but they could be tomatoes–I went with peppers. He's also got a pile of shredded orange cheese, a pile of what could be julienned onions or shredded white cheese (but that would be redundant), and another pile that looks like cut mushrooms. He also most definitely has some straight crispy bacon laying on a paper towel, but that's not going into the omelette (it could be crunched up and sprinkled on later though...). He gives a piece to Chloe's daughter and she crunches on it very audibly and happily. You could put (non-crispy) bacon in the omelette as I mention below, but I chose to go the prosciutto route. Just because."Do you have any truffle oil?""Lucifer, get out of my house, now."
–Lucifer & Chloe, S1, Ep4 "Lucifer" (FOX)
Also, you might think that this should be a spicy omelette being for Lucifer and all, but as we learn later on in the episode, he's not a "flaming hot guy" when it comes to food. If anything, sprinkle in some ranch powder! ;)
"Somebody, please flip the omelette if it's not already ruined."–Lucifer, S1, Ep4 "Lucifer" (FOX)
Lucifer's Surprise Breakfast Omelette
Ingredients (per 1 omelette):
2 Tbsp. Truffle Oil
1/4 Cup Thinly Julienned Onion
1/4 Cup Sliced Fancy Mushrooms (non-fancy mushrooms are fine)
1 Slice Prosciutto (you could also use cooked, but not crispy bacon)
2 Large Eggs, whisked w/ a fork
Salt & Pepper to taste
Roasted Red Pepper (about 1/2 large pepper-worth)
1/4 Cup Strong Orange Cheese, grated or thinly sliced (I used Red Fox brand because I thought it was appropriate. Sharp cheddar is fine too)
1 tsp. Chopped Parsley + more for garnish (optional. I used Italian for the inside & then crinkly for the garnish. Flat probably would have looked better though.)
1. Cut 2 curved horns from the roasted red pepper & set aside (keep the cut-away pieces too). In a medium pan over medium heat, heat 1 Tbsp. truffle oil. Add the onions & sauté for about 3 minutes or so, occasionally stirring with a spatula. Add in the mushrooms & cook for another 2-3 minutes, until just tender. Remove to a nearby bowl & then lay the prosciutto in the pan & cook for a minute or 2 on either side to sizzle it up a little. Lay the prosciutto with the onion & mushrooms.
2. Put the 2nd Tbsp. of truffle oil in the pan & turn the heat to low. Pour the beaten eggs into the pan & turn the pan slightly so that the mixture covers the entire bottom of the pan. Sprinkle with a little salt & pepper to taste. Let cook until it's no longer runny & the egg on the top is only a bit jiggly. Lay the prosciutto down the center & then layer the cheese, a few strips of red pepper (not the horns), & the onions & mushrooms on top of it. Sprinkle on the optional parsley, & then fold one side over the filling & then the other, overlapping. Carefully flip the omelette & let it cook on the seam for a minute, & then gently transfer it to a serving plate. Situate the red pepper horns on top & garnish with (totally optional) parsley. Drizzle with a little more truffle oil if you like.
