Ricotta Omelet Rolls with Spinach, 
Sun-dried Tomatoes and Basil

Today is Earth Day 2011, and of course we are featuring all fresh and
organic ingredients here today. Not that, that is a new thing, but I do
not always mention it :) So a very Happy Earth Day to you all!

This is a simple and relatively quick breakfast or brunch dish that can
spruce up a favorite classic dish, The Omelet. The filling can be adjusted
to any of your favorite omelet fillings, as long as you keep them on the
thinner side...

What you will need:
Per Serving

For the egg mixture
2 extra large eggs
2 tablespoons half and half
1/2 tablespoon herbs de provence
1/8th teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon butter
1 teaspoon olive oil
Large sauté pan
Baking dish

For the filling
5 ounces ricotta
1/2 ounce sun-dried tomatoes
2 large basil leaves, torn
1 ounce spinach

Let's get cooking:

Place eggs, half and half with seasoning in a mixing bowl Whisk until
completely incorporated. Heat butter and oil in your sauté pan on a
low heat. Add egg mixture and cook until your egg mixture just begins
to firm. Remove from heat and gently slide your egg sheet onto
a cutting board or clean working surface. With a spoon or other
utensil spread the ricotta as if icing a cake. Layer on your sun-dried
tomatoes, then leafy greens. Gently starting on one side, begin to
roll until you have reached the farthest side.

Lightly grease your baking dish and place roll inside.
and place in a pre-heated oven at 300 degrees for 10-15 minutes, this
step is not required but it will aid to slightly wilt your spinach. 

You can now slice your omelet roll in rings like shown, or plate in any fashion desired.
 Serve with fresh fruit, salsa or any number of your favorite egg dish sauces.

We would like to take a quick moment to with all of those whom celebrate a
very Happy Easter!

And as a side note mention that we have some awards coming up soon :)
