One of my former misconceptions about baking is the necessity of having fancy ingredients. But as I baked more, I realized that just like cooking on a stove, baking is just as easy as using whatever ingredients you have on hand.
For example, on a cool and lazy Sunday afternoon like today, I wanted to eat something warm but uncomplicated. I just cleaned all my baking utensils (after hosting dinner, brunch, and lunch for three consecutive days) last night and I don’t feel like going through the rigueur of three days past. Besides, I’m home alone so no fuss needed for huge servings. So, I just grabbed whatever useful ingredients I have in our kitchen and decided to make a Quiche-inspired baked omelet.
I used 2 cloves garlic, diced three button mushrooms, a handful of spinach, some cheddar cheese, eggs, milk and salt and pepper to taste. I baked it for about twenty minutes on a 350-degree oven (I included the pan de sal J) until the top is slightly brown. Served with Pan de Sal and iced tea.
Ah…I love lazy Sunday afternoons.
