A beautiful classic French omelette filled with fresh manchego cheese and chive served in a buttery croissant loaded with fresh tomato, crisp arugula, creamy avocado, a hint of Dijon and finished with mustard seed micro greens.
Assembling the sandwich themselves is relatively straight forward. We combined easy accessible ingredients that add freshness to each bite, used store bought croissants (we love the ones from Costco because they are nice and big) and added mustard seed micro greens for a beautiful finish.
In terms of level of difficulty, the only thing would be making the omelette. If you’ve never made a French omelette before, we highly recommend watching a quick video. There are plenty available on YouTube. The omelette practically folds itself and is much easier than it looks! Take your time, don’t cook the eggs on high heat as you don’t want to feel rushed or want the eggs to cook too quickly. Another thing is don’t use a pan that’s too small or too big. Something that is between 7-9 inches is ideal.
Making the omelette requires the eggs to be moved around with a spatula until they set in the pan. It leaves you with a thin omelette in your pan which cooks in about 2 minutes at a medium temperature. Note that 1 omelette will make 2 sandwiches. Something to keep in mind is also you don’t want to add more eggs to the omelette to be able to serve more sandwiches at once. The intent of a French omelette is that it starts off thin and folded over. Otherwise your just making a regular omelette.
The recipe can easily be adapted and scaled per the amount of sandwiches you are making.
