Making an omelet from eggs laid 5 meters from the fry pad is a very cool thing to do. Even better when they are still warm! So when you are raising both chickens and quail, what’s the harm in combing the two into a unique yet disturbing mash-up meal?
- Melt some butter into a pan on low heat. Once melted, add some chicken and quail meat. Cook until ready to eat, then put onto a plate to let it rest.
- Crack open the chicken and quail eggs into the one bowl, add a dollop of full milk cream, then whisk it up with a fork.
- Melt more butter into that pan you just used, and on a low heat, pour in the egg mixture. Cook the eggs until 50% done, then flip the omelet over itself as shown.
- Add the cooked chicken and quail meat.
- Keep cooking until the omelet is almost done, then off the heat. The eggs should keep on cooking all by themselves.
- Add to a plate with whatever sides you feel like. I added yogurt and olive oil to complete this abomination.
- Eat it!
I hope you get the chance to eat a chicken and quail omelet, with chicken and quail. If you do (or something similar), I’d love to hear from you.
