Smoked Salmon with a Dill and Fetta omlette & Breakfast at the tessellated Pavement

I had a fun morning with a few friends on the Tessellated pavement in Eaglehawk neck we decided to combine some photography practise for Tafe with Breakfast. It is always nice to go a bit over board with some cooking and food-styling as I am normally cooking a lot of boring looking family food!

It was a lovely morning apart from one small hiccup of a loud, obnoxious, bogan ‘local’ she thought we were ‘inconsiderate tourists’ by being in the way on the pavement (although there was PLENTY of space for her to pass, no one else had a problem and most stopped for a chat) and we had specifically set up in a position as to not get in the way of other photographers and tourists! Aside from this being quite funny as I have lived here for over 10 years, I am not sure why if tourists were putting effort into taking some pics to promote our beautiful state, even if it is only to their own small friendship group or over social media WHY anybody would think this would be a problem? Such a shame that the local, state and even federal tourism bodies put such effort and expense into marketing our beautiful state for the small minority of inbred bogan locals to practically tell them to buggar off when they get here- treating them as if they are a inconvinence! The Tourism industry is probably the biggest employer in the area so it is pretty bloody important to the Tasman Peninsula! Any way she gave us something to laugh about during the morning.

And here is the Delicious  omelette recipe that Arwen and I created together:

1 clove garlic
2 tablespoon fresh dill
8 eggs 100 grams cream
100 grams Fetta
salt and pepper
200 grams salmon and more dill to serve

IN the Thermomix: add the peeled garlic clove, dill, eggs and cream to the bowl and a pinch of salt and pepper blend speed 8/10 sec.

Spread a sheet of baking paper on the top tray of the varoma, pour the mix onto the baking paper and sprinkle fetta on top, half fill the bowl with water then put the varoma in place and steam speed 4 14 minutes/ varoma temp)

Serve hot, warm or cold topped with the salmon and dill.

If you don’t have a thermomix whisk the ingredients together and cook the omelette on a pan on the stove top or in the oven.

Stephanie baking Scrolls

This is Stephanie cooking the scrolls from my book, The Real Food for Kids cookbook, we did use the thermomix to  mix the dough but she measured all the ingredients into the bowl.

steph 1 (1 of 1)

This is the ‘warm spot’ steph picked for the dough to rise! she cracks me up!

 

bread rising (1 of 1)

for soft bread you can leave the dough to rise a few times, knocking back in between rises, and use warm water (not hot it will kill the yeast)

butter549

Stephanie has rolled the dough out into a large square (kind of??!) and spreads butter over 2/3rds

Yummy lunch of freshly baked scrolls. The rising time takes a while, but if I am home anyway for the day, they really do not take much time to make. Having the scrolls wrapped and frozen to pull out to defrost for a busy morning actually makes packing the lunches in the mornings a lot easier!!

There are heaps of different filling ideas your kids will enjoy creating their own, pizza scrolls are always a hit!
