This prosciutto wrapped omelet with spinach, roasted red pepper and goat cheese makes for a light breakfast, lunch or even a snack! Quick to whip up and full of healthy, clean ingredients. Plus prosciutto wrapped foods is just as good as bacon wrapped. And we all know bacon wrapped foods are awesome.
Whenever I would watch movies when I was younger; whether in the theater or rented from the video store down the street, my mom and I would ALWAYS go to the website Movie Mistakes to find the mistakes. As in the scenes where one second a cup was there, then it isn’t then it is again. Or like in one of my all-time favorite movies, Mean Girls, where in one second a book is closed and the next its open! Like HERE
So when I started getting more into food photography and styling, I researched ideas on Pinterest, food pic submission sites like Foodgawker and Tastespotting, various cookbooks I have and from my favorite food photography tutorials, Photographing Food ebooks. I never want to copy someones style but I use a lot of pics I find as inspiration and I realized I can’t just set up ONE scene and shoot ONE pic and be done. I like different angles, I move props around, I forget props, I add props later. I realized that I am like movie mistakes. I will essentially take the same pic, but there are different elements in each one. Like this one above is just the omelet on the plate. Nothing else.
Now the napkin is folded off to the side with the bottom of one of the utensils visible.
Oh but back to how I had it before with the napkin under the plate, and now the utensils are on the plate!
Now its an overhead shot and the omelets are no longer overlapped and the utensils are next to the plate on top the napkin that is now no longer under the plate. HUGE changes. I totally rearranged stuff like in this Movie Mistake from Back To The Future
Now the omelets are back to how I originally had them and strawberries on the plate! See I had planned all along to put the strawberries on the plate and I forgot until about halfway through shooting. I contemplated re-shooting all the pics with the strawberries but decided not to. Because that is when it reminded me of movie mistakes and it made me laugh. Laughter is good. So the next time you watch a move, go check out Movie Mistakes and try to find all the mistakes and go back and watch the movie again just to see if you can pick them out.
- 4 – 6 slices of prosciutto
- 4 whole large organic eggs
- 2 Tbsp organic butter or coconut oil
- 2 cups organic baby spinach
- 1 medium organic red bell pepper
- 2 ounces of goat cheese
- 2 tsp. fresh chives, chopped
- Sea salt and ground black pepper
- Place the red bell pepper on either a gas stove top or grill on medium heat and char the pepper on all sides. Place in a bowl and cover with a towel for about 20 min. Rinse under cool water and remove the charred skin. Remove the stem and seeds and slice into thin strips. Set aside
- Crack the eggs into 2 separate bowls, so you have 2 whole eggs for each omelet. Whisk well and season with sea salt and pepper. Heat a flat 10” skillet over medium heat, a crepe pan works great, and melt 1 Tbsp of either butter or coconut oil and once melted pour one of the bowls of eggs and swirl to coat the pan completely. Once the eggs are almost set, either slice in half and flip or flip the whole thing carefully and cut in half once removed from the pan. I used an offset spatula to flip like I do with crepes, after I went around the edges to unstick the omelet. Cook until set. Remove to a cutting board and repeat with the other eggs.
- Once the eggs are cooked, add the spinach to the pan and quickly stir for about 30 seconds to slightly wilt. Divide the spinach between the omelets and tip with red pepper slices and ½ ounce goat cheese per omelet half. Roll each up very gently and then wrap one of the slices of prosciutto around each omelet. If the prosciutto you have is thin or tears wrap a little bit more around.
- Garnish with chives and serve immediately.
And a final overhead shot with items rearranged again. This makes me want to go back and look at other blog posts of mine to see changes I made, and to watch movies to try to find ” mistakes”
