Thai Style "Pad Thai" Omelette

Eggs- my favourite breakfast or snack. On weekdays, I usually have some yogurt and berries, or maybe soft boil eggs with salmon. On most days, a good breakfast will last me till lunch time.

Growing up, my mother would purchase my favourite breads to entice me to eat something before school starts. I went through a phase as well in baking our own bread. The smell of fresh bread in the morning is just amazing.

While I still do indulge in bread and muesli occasionally, I find that starting the day with protein and some fat seems to sit better with me. I'm not sure if it is my digestive system or just how my body seem to function. Certainly hubby is noticing a difference as well and for the time being, we are sticking to this routine.

Breakfast is still one of my favourite meals of the day. While I wouldn't say I am a natural morning person, having a good big hot breakfast just seem to make it a bit better isn't it? Especially a hot breakie on a cold morning.

On weekends, I like to make omelettes or scrambled eggs. In this version, I sautéed some prawns, chill and fish sauce. Somehow, it reminded me of the flavours of pad thai without the noodles. Come to think of it, this can also easily be a side dish for dinner or even stand alone for lunch.

Thai Style "Pad Thai" Omelette (serve 2)
8 prawns
4 eggs
few tablespoon of almond milk or milk of your choice
1 tsp of fish sauce
dash of chinese wine

Beat eggs with milk. Pour into pan and let it set. Tear up some basil leaves while it is setting. Serve!

I like this omelette! It can pass off as main dish for breakfast/lunch and a side dish for dinner. I wish I could eat such a good breakfast every day but unfortunately it's usually milk + cereals cos it's most convenient for time-tight mornings! :O

I need to have fat for breakfast also! Usually I get it in the form of peanut butter but this sounds like such a tasty option also.

Oh wow this is so easy to make and I love the fish sauce in the omelette. I'm making this for this weekend breakfast. My family will be shocked to see an Asian flair on the omelette! ;-)
