    I'm thinking about doing an omelette for lunch at work tomorrow. I'd have to make it tonight and refrigerate it.

    Would anyone eat a cold omelette?
    Is that gross?

    I could reheat it but not sure if this is a good idea?

    Any thoughts / opinions welcome!

    Stacey :)

    Most definitely would.

    On a green day I often cut some potato into cubes, boil until soft. Dice an onion, fry with fry light until transparent. Whisk a couple of eggs, mix the potato and onion into the whisked egg and cook on one side in an omelet pan or small frying pan, take off heat place a plate over the omelet, turn it out of the pan onto the plate, slide the uncooked side down into the pan and finish cooking. I use plenty of seasoning.

    This is so delicious hot or cold. It is the recipe for a true Spanish omelet adapted to SW style cooking.

    Free on a green day

    This is a favourite lunch box filler of mine! We use different ingredients all the time. Courgette and red pepper is a favourite and we always eat them cold with salt and pepper sprinkled on top and a big salad.

    Enjoy!

    Yes would deffo eat cold! :)

    Another cold fave for lunch is the SW pasta quiche (made with Batchelors Pasta N Sauce), I often make that of an evening and have it cold for lunch for the next couple of times.

    Filling, yummy, and FREE :)

    One of the picnic suggestions in the most recent Asda free magazine was Ommlette Baguette. I wasn't sure, but my OH said he thought it sounded good. I do have Spanish style ommlette cold, but they're more chunky so it's in wedges. (I put peppers, courgette, etc plus some potato or cooked syn free supernoodles in it and a HEx A of lowlow cheese on top and grill it before cooling).

    Personally no. I wouldn't reheat it either. Instead I would turn it into a SW quiche or my favourie cheese and onion flan (without pastry of course):cool:
