Quick, Easy & Goes Down Great at A Buffet Party
This weekend was my awesome Grandad’s 80th Birthday and we decided to throw him a jam-packed surprise family party at home to celebrate (he loves the attention secretly). As usual, me and my mum go completely overboard with the spread and have such a mish-mash of dishes for people to choose from. On one side of the table we have Japanese tempura prawns, and Chinese dumpling, in the middle cheese and crackers and next to that we have a bowl of roasted potatoes, chicken drumsticks and salmon cucumber sandwiches…oh wait, I’m also forgetting the pièce de résistance, mum’s famous homemade Victoria sponge cake toppled with Double whipped cream and winter berries. Phew! Cooking all that in a day was blooming stressful, but hey, at least no-one can say they went hungry.
So 20 minuets before everyone turns up and I still haven’t even showered, I then remember ‘Oh sugar! What are me and dad ‘the veggies’ gonna eat!’. I completely forgot to make anything not high in FODMAPs. Calmly suppressing my stress and ignoring the fact I’ve got 20 min to cook yet another dish and do my hair and makeup, I figured what the heck! Let’s go with a good ole’ omelette! I cook it when either a) I don’t have time to cook or B) When I can’t be bothered to cook but want something tasty!
I throw it together put it in the oven and while it’s baking ran to get ready.
Once it was on the table I thought no one will want a boring old omelette. Surprisingly I thought wrong, it was tried and tested and the word spread around the room and it was gone. I have to say I did get a slice but poor old dad didn’t get a look in; it’s OK though he had a tub of caramel popcorn which he was more than chuffed with. So what I thought was a bog standard dish turning into the centre piece of the buffet table… Yay for me!t My Aunt who specifically requested this recipe is the only reason I’m posting it here today. So this is for you Janet! xX
