Meals Made Easy With The Red Copper 5 Minute Chef

                             The last time I made an omelet it was a failure.


  A couple of weeks ago I wanted an omelet. Now when I make omelets, I want them to be filled with veggies and look/taste like the ones you get at those breakfast places. So I grabbed the eggs from my fridge along with some cheese and veggies. At the time, I only had mushrooms, shredded carrots, and a red pepper in my fridge. I really wanted spinach but I did not have any so these veggies had to work. I chopped up all the veggies and whisked three eggs all while my taste buds were drooling with anticipation for a cheesy omelet. I warmed up the pan and proceed to make my omelet. In went the eggs, then the veggies and finally the cheese. All was going well with my cooking until it was time to fold the omelet. This is when things took a turn for the worst and my omelet turned into scrambled eggs with veggies. I like to think that I am a good cook but my mess of eggs and veggies was not that cheesy omelet that I was expecting. I just could not get the eggs to cooperate and I may have put too many veggies in. I vowed never to make another omelet and go to the breakfast restaurant when I have that craving.

                                         I received a Red Copper 5 Minute Chef to facilitate this post.

  Well that all changed the minute this red football shaped cooking device showed up at my house. I knew that I just had to give the Red Copper 5 Minute Chef a try as so wanted to be able to make a cheesy spinach omelet at home and have it resemble one, not look like scrambled eggs. I already owned the Red Copper Brownie Bonanza and loved how my brownies slid out of the pan in perfectly even slices. So I gave the 5 Minute Chef a chance. I just had to as this device could also make pizza and desserts. My younger boys could maybe also do some more cooking beyond the microwave as they are not allowed to use the stove/oven yet.


  The first thing that I made in the 5 Minute Chef was a salmon burger as we had no eggs in the house and it did a great job. I loved that there was no messy grease splattering all over my stove as the fish was contained in the closed pan. My fish tasted so good and it was not dried out one bit.


  Once I went to the store and bought eggs, I then used the cute red cooking device to make my omelet. I loved that I did not have to add any oil to the pan, that way I was saving my fat grams for my cheese. The best part was I could add the eggs, spinach (lots of it), and cheese all at the same time to the pan, instead of waiting when I cooked on my stovetop. I closed the lid of the 5 Minute Chef and locked it, very important step, and waited two minutes. Then I flipped the pan over, why it needs to be locked, and waited two more minutes. I then opened up the red pan and I had a perfectly cooked omelet! I was amazed that this pan could do that. I was in egg heaven!


  The 5 Minute Chef came with a recipe book that had easy recipes for pizza, cake, pancakes and more. Since the pan is so easy to use, makes no mess, and is easy to clean, I knew that I had to teach my younger boys how to use it. That way they can eat other things besides PB and J and microwaved cheese sandwiches for fend for yourself dinner night. I admit things get busy here and we have way too many fend for yourself dinner nights. Hey, how else are my boys going to learn how to cook?


 My ten-year-old was the most excited to try the 5 Minute Chef Pan as he recognized the lady on the box from a TV commercial. He helped me make pancakes in it and it was so easy. His younger brother enjoyed having pancakes for dinner that night. Once the pan cooled down, I showed my son how to wipe the pan down with a dishcloth. Then I placed the red pan in my pantry as I knew it would get a lot of use. I think this red pan will be the start of my boys learning how to cook more and I might just put them in charge of making dinner.
