A Classic Breakfast to Start Your Day

  1. Fire up your grill. Poke holes all over the sausages using a toothpick or fork. Place them on the grill, turning them over occasionally. Cook for 10-15 minutes. 
  2. In the meantime, beat the eggs, and add salt and pepper. 
  3. Heat a skillet on medium heat, and melt the butter. Pour the eggs in, and tilt the pan till the eggs cover the pan’s surface. 
  4. Once the bottom of the omelet begins to set, sprinkle the cheese and chives on one side of the omelet. 
  5. Fold the other half of the omelet onto the cheesy side using a spatula. Slide it onto your plate, sprinkle some chopped chives on top, and serve with the sausages on the side. 

Chef Tip: Separate the eggs and beat the whites and yolks separately for a fluffy omelet. Beat the whites until they form soft peaks. Add a dash of paprika or red pepper flakes if you like a little spice.
