Onion omelette by Alessandro Borghese

From the hands of a chef, a delicious but very simple dish could only be born. We are talking about Alessandro Borghese’s onion omelette!

In his Kitchen Sound program, Alessandro Borghese has revisited Fantozzi’s onion omelette making it a refined dish while maintaining the simplicity of preparation. Alessandro Borghese’s onion omelette differs from the classic omelette due to the presence of 4 different types of onions: red, golden, leek and spring onion.

It is therefore a quick and easy recipe, perfect when you don’t know what to cook for dinner. In fact, preparing the fresh onion omelette takes about ten minutes and no particular culinary skills. We like to serve it sliced ​​by placing it directly in the center of the table, thus creating a nice atmosphere of conviviality. What do you think?
