Cincinnati German Style Omelet
Omelets are like pizza in that they allow for so much creativity, customization, and imagination. Additionally, if you have a good non-stick skillet you are almost guaranteed a perfect omelet. Adding Queen City Metts creates a rich, smoky flavor with just the right spices.
You Will Need the Following:
- 2 links of Queen City Mild Mett or Hot Mett (Links are fully cooked)
- 4 large eggs
- Medium bowl, medium non-stick skillet
- 1 TBS. butter
- 1 pinch of coarse ground pepper
- 4 Oz. Sharp cheddar cheese or your favorite
How to Prepare:
- Cut the 2 links of Queen City Mild Mett or Hot Mett into small wedges or dice.
- Crack open the 3 eggs into the bowl and whisk until thoroughly mixed.
- Place the medium non-stick skillet on the burner, medium heat.
- Coat the skillet surface and sides generously with butter.
- Add the beaten eggs.
- Add the Queen City Mild Mett or Hot Mett to the skillet mixture.
- Add the cheese.
- Add pepper.
- When the omelet is done, remove it from the skillet and fold it onto the plate. You can use the warm skillet to aid in gently pressing down on the folded omelet. Cut in half and serve.
Parboil with beer
In a pot placed directly on the grill, add your favorite beer and Queen City sausages. Before they even touch the grates of the grill, allow the sausages to simmer in the beer for about 5 minutes.
Once the grill has warmed to a medium-low temperature, and the sausages have been heated throughout, remove them from the beer and place them right on the grill. Cook each link slowly over low heat to preserve its juices and optimize flavor. High heat leads to burnt casings, overcooked sausages, and flame flare-ups; grill slowly and carefully.
Forks pierce sausage casings and allow juices to escape. Avoid flare-ups and dry sausages by turning them often with tongs.
Note: More cooking time may be necessary when cooking raw sausages.
