I will be the first to admit this…I’m not really into cooking. Thank goodness I married an Italian man that loves cooking and I mean he really enjoys it. Even though it was my Nana that cooked most of our home cooked meals by scratch, I was still able to pick up a few things when it concerned cooking.
There were three things I could do when it came to cooking at the age of 18 and that was boil water ( hot dogs, mac-n-cheese, or eggs anyone?) bake cookies and a Swedish omelet. All of us kids learned how to make Swedish omelet when we were very young. There was no magic formula involved. It was basically what ever was in your house, then add eggs and a little milk. My family loved meat, so the omelets always had some sort of meat which included hotdogs if we did not have any ham, bacon, or sausage available. If my Uncle Carl was cooking, then expect those scrambled eggs to have some sort of beer added instead of milk. To make your own Swedish omelet you will need
8 eggs add a little milk when beating them
1 cup chopped green, red, yellow peppers
½ cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
Sausage, ham, bacon or hotdogs (optional)
First cook everything you will be adding to eggs, Fry up the potatoes and onions
Then add your red, yellow, green peppers.
Add all ingredients into your cast iron skillet. If you are using a casserole dish then start adding all your cooked ingredients together in that.
Beat your eggs and add some milk to egg mixture
Once you are done beating eggs, add to your vegetables in dish or pan.
Bake at 355F for 30 min. or until egg is cooked all the way through to top.
Take out of oven and sprinle half a cup of grated cheddar cheese to top . you can also add chives…this is optional.
This is the non-meat eaters version, so for all you meat eaters you can add your cooked meat in along with the vegetables before you bake. As you can imagine, I was the black sheep of the family, not really being a big fan of lots of meat.
