WWDH - Asian Mushroom Omelette


This week's Wednesday with Donna Hay is a little taste of Asia, as Margaret chose Asian Mushroom Omelette, the recipe for which is online here.

I made a third of the recipe for breakfast.  This omelette was OK, but a little dry for my taste.  It really needed the sauce (Donna suggests oyster sauce, I used hoisin sauce.)

To see what Margaret, Sarah and Kayte thought of this dish, visit their websites.

Well, I am sure this would make a nice lunch or light dinner. If it is a bit dry some veggies or salad might do the trick. Blessings dear. Catherine xo

I'm sorry you didn't care for this recipe, Cakelaw. I looked at the ingredients and am surprised you found it dry. I like to add cream to my omelettes but that may not owrk in a recipe such as Donna Hay's. Hoisen Sauce does sound better than Oyster sauce especialy since I don't always have oyster sauce in the pantry.

Thanks so much for sharing, Cakelaw...

You can never go wrong with an omelette!

I like the thought of a mushroom Asian-style omelette but probably would have been lack lustre about the reality, as you were - omelettes and I don't get on that well!

My mushrooms disappeared into the omelet. I like the look of yours where you can see the vegetables. I enjoyed posting again and hope to keep up with the group.

I wonder if it tasted dry because we are used to having some bubbling cheese in an omelette? At least I am used to it. Hoisin sauce would be a good addition.

Kayte said...

Looks great, Gaye. I agree with your assessment about being a little dry and rubbery, although I did pull mine out just before it was really set, it still seemed a little off to me. Oh, well, always fun to try something new. And now I can spell Shiitake correctly (I never realized before there were two ii in it! lol)

I could go for an omelette any time of the day. This looks fantastic!
