Buttered herb Garlic Toast with Cheese Omelette

Healthy, nutrition packed food, clean eating is the fast becoming mainstream. There are some foods we crave, food that we should not be eating too often, still we do eat it anyway. Our guilty pleasures!
Here is an easy to make weekend brunch loaded with calories, ultimate Guilty pleasure! Buttered herb Garlic toast with Omelette with cheese. So delicious!


For the Toast

  • 4 Slices of bread (I used whole wheat bread)
  • Butter as per your requirement
  • 1 garlic clove crushed
  • 1/2 Teaspoon dried mixed herbs ( I used oregano, basil and rosemary)
  • a big pinch of red chilli flakes

For the Cheese Omelette

  • 1 Tablespoon vegetable oil or butter
  • 4 Large Eggs ( I used 3 egg whites and one yolk; )
  • a big pinch of salt
  • 1/3 Cup Grated Cheese ( I used amul processed cheese cubes)
  • 2 Tablespoons finely chopped spring onion greens
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Red chilli flakes ( optional)


1. Crush the garlic clove and gently rub the garlic on the both sides of the bread
2. Apply butter generously on both sides of the bread slices. Sprinkle dried herbs, chilli flakes. You can sprinkle finely chopped garlic clove if you wish more garlicky toast. Arrange the bread slices in a large baking tray
3. Preheat the oven to 200C and bake the bread for 3 minutes. Remove the baking tray from the oven and flip sides of the bread slices and return the tray back to the oven and bake for 2 more minutes until the bread is crispy and golden. Do not walk away from the oven while the bread is getting toasted in the oven. They burn too quickly
4. Remove from the oven and serve immediately with the omelette

For the Cheese Omelette

1. In a medium mixing bowl, add eggs and salt and whisk for a minute until they are frothy
2. In a non stick pan, heat oil. When the oil is hot, turn down the heat to the lowest setting
3. Pour the egg mixture and do not disturb the omelette for 2 minutes. Let the omelette get crispy and golden from the bottom side
4. Now Sprinkle cheese over the omelette( over the uncooked side; don't flip the omelette yet). Sprinkle spring onion greens. Sprinkle chilli flakes
5. Fold the omelette half way through ( to make a semi circle). Let the omelette cook for a minute more
6. Remove from the pan and serve hot with the toast + a cup of orange Juice or coffee
