Have you tried a Corsican omelette with mint?

A Corsican mint omelette

Mint Omelette – Corsican Style

Ingredients Instructions
  • 7 Eggs Organic
  • Pinch each of salt and pepper
  • 2 tbsp olive oil Extra Virgin
  • 10-15 Fresh mint leaves (peppermint) each leaf torn in half
  • 50 g (2oz) Brocciu or fresh goat's cheese roughly chopped or crumbled (optional)
  • Heat the olive oil in a non-stick omelette pan over a medium heat.
  • In a large bowl, beat the eggs just until the eggs and whites are mixed together. Add the salt and pepper, according to taste.
  • Tip the egg mixture into the pan with the hot oil. As the eggs cook, quickly move around the mixture away from the sides, tilting the pan so that the liquid from the middle goes all around the outside, to enable more even cooking.
  • Top evenly with the mint and cheese (if using) and, while still a bit liquid, top with a large plate and tip the omelette onto the plate. Carefully, slide the omelette back into the pan, cooking the other side just for a minute then serve the omelette with the least cooked side upright. The omelette should be soft and runny in the middle ("baveuse" or dribbling, as the French say).
