Interesting Wedding Breakfast Brunch Recipe -- Chocolate Omeletes

Photo and recipe courtesy of:

I have come across multiple recipes for chocolate omelets but this is by far the easiest and it plates up for an attractive brunch wedding dish.  It is a simple but decadent dish to serve your guests.  Or if you are planning a brunch for that special someone or for breakfast in bed for a lover who is a chocoholic.  Serve with fruit at the side.  Sprinkle the top with Confectioner's Sugar for extra sweetness. 

Chocolate Omelets


(Serves 2)
4 eggs
2 tbsp powdered drinking chocolate (use high quality drinking chocolate which has some sugar in it)
2 tbsp chocolate buttons
Whisk together the eggs and drinking chocolate.

Warm a non-stick pan and pour egg mixture straight in and cook for 3-4 minutes.

Sprinkle over with the chocolate buttons (or as we Americans call them chocolate chips) and place under broiler until the buttons are melted. Do not put too close to broiler or it will get too dry.  Take out of oven and flip closed.  You can also serve it with a side of ice cream or whipped cream or if you are feeling truly decadent, both! Garnish with a mint sprig.

Another option is to fill with fresh raspberries and then fold, sprinkle with Confectioner's Sugar. 

INGREDIENTS FOR 2nd Photo of Chocolate Omelets

6 eggs, separated
¼ cup (55g) caster sugar
2 tablespoons cream
1 tablespoon plain flour
120g dark chocolate, melted
20g unsalted butter
120g raspberries
sifted icing sugar, to dust
ice-cream, to serve (optional)
Preheat oven to 190C or 170C fan. In a large bowl, whisk together egg yolks, sugar, cream, flour and melted chocolate.

Using an electric mixer, beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Gently fold egg whites into chocolate mixture with a spatula.

Melt half of butter in a large ovenproof frying pan on low heat. Pour in half of egg mixture. Bake omelet for 3-6 minutes, until puffed and set.

Slide omelet onto a warm serving plate and top with half of raspberries. Fold omelet in half and dust with icing sugar. Repeat with remaining ingredients, except ice-cream, to make another omelet.

Cut omelets into thick slices and serve immediately with vanilla ice-cream.

Both recipes are good, I like the way the second one looks better.  Try each one and see which you like best and leave me some comments.  Nestle also has a recipe on their web site.  It's all a matter of personal preference, so take some time to taste test recipes.

Be aware there are a lot of recipes on the web for chocolate omelets, some are all chocolate like these, others have just a hint of chocolate.  Taste test them (that's the best part!)
