wrong omelettes

I taught my 10yo vegetarian ds to make omelettes in the summer holiday. He likes them a lot, particularly with mature cheddar or Boursin.

Yesterday I let him make an omelette for tea, and found he'd put in salt-and-vinegar hula hoops with ketchup, as the filling. He ate it, all. Aibu to continue to give him omelette autonomy or should I try to rein him in from weird/ridiculous fillings? (He has signalled an intent to make a bbq Pringles omelette also.)

Sounds interesting! Let him try them out.

That doesn't sound too bad, actually...

He's the next Heston! grin

If he eats them then let him experiment. Maybe he's a chef in the making grin

Sounds like he's practising student life already!

Leave him be. Teach him how to make toasties. Then tell him to out Cadburys Crunchie in between two slices of bread and toast

My DH made an omelette for his best man a few nights before our wedding. His best man thought he was trying to kill him! DH just threw in whatever he could find in the kitchen cupboards.

A Heston in the making I'd say, or you will be confident he will be able to feed himself when he leaves home. Protien - check, carbs - check, fat - check and some bit of 5 a day.

Red sauce must not touch egg, you must stop him immediately

I need more details on the Crunchie toast!

brillo is the red sauce and egg a chemical reaction thing?

I think he could be onto something. Salt n vinigar with boursin chese? I like that combo in sandwich.

I love tomato ketchup with a cheese and mushroom omelette! And scrambled eggs!

Yum, that sounds delicious

Get him to try using manky tinned hotdogs next time. Delicious in an omelette

Don't know whether to laugh or vomit, OP!

Nope, it is just vile and against all reason and taste.

<fistbumps brillo>

The Pringles idea is interesting though. I might make one with DS1 tomorrow before his brother and Dad get home - we have a tube of S&V Pringles in the cupboard that need eating up. grin

Pringles omelette? Awesome - and many flavours to be tested.

Mummyme1987 Mon 05-Sep-16 23:19:47

Kind of a student frittata really! 😂

Oh Christ.
My 8yo has just turned veggie too so I taught him to make omelettes last week.


I did suspect his vegetarianism was a conduit to crisps tbh. My suspicions may well fare grounded.
