Hey, foodies! ALL: Hi!
This is Elektra, Frank, Sapphire, and Johnny.
I've dragged in a few of my old friends
-from the Dumping Ground days...
..to help me with a project I'm doing on healthy eating
at my catering college.
We've picked our favourite recipes and shoved them into a hat,
for another person to select at random, and make the meal.
The person who suggested the recipe is going to be the chef's
assistant, and they're going to tell us exactly why they chose it.
-So, it's Elektra's turn to cook.
And she has chosen...
Johnny's busting breakfast omelette.
Yes! I love this omelette.
I love eggs, I love tomatoes, I love cheese and ham.
Oh, Elektra's vegetarian, so you might have to do adapt it.
Yeah, I'm vegetarian.
Guys, do you know what time it is? ALL: Jump back!
Ooh, lovely ingredients. Keep them coming, people.
All right. So, you've got to start by cutting the tomato in half.
You have to remove the seeds and juice as well.
It's the only bit of fuss in the entire recipe, but
seeds and juice have no place in my omelette!
You have to hike ten miles on this in the Army.
They use powdered eggs as well.
Eurgh! What does that taste like?
Like you've powdered an egg.
Johnny, tell the guys watching why you chose this.
Right, so Sapphire had just left the Dumping Ground. Sorry, Saff.
But everyone else was still there,
and we wanted this new computer.
So we ended up doing this
ridiculous task where we each
had to look after a raw egg.
And if, by the end of the day,
we still had our eggs, Mike was going to buy us the computer.
But we all broke our eggs. We tried to fool him by getting new ones.
-Did not work!
Cool! So now, you need to
beat the eggs into the bowl.
Now, for this you just want to gently use the work surface...
Er, can I have less eggshell in mine, please?
And now, a pinch of salt and pepper and add the milk.
Right. Now, break up the yolks with your fork to mix it all up
and then beat in the eggs with the milk.
Make sure it's all the same consistency and colour.
All right, soldier boy, I know what I'm doing!
Next, we heat up the pan, right?
-And then add in the butter. Oh, which one is the butter again(?)
HE LAUGHS SARCASTICALLY
So you put that in and make sure that it's evenly spread,
and it's got to be hot!
And then, next pour in the mixture.
And give it a little jiggle
so it's evenly spread out.
-Cook for two minutes...
Yeah? Frank, I need you.
Hello. While you were away, Johnny admitted how much better
I am at this than he is.
-Erm... No, I didn't!
OK, so two minutes is up, so I'm going to add the tomato,
and most of the cheese and parsley.
And keep working the edges...
Right, so how about
I put the ham just on this side,
so that the other side is still vegetarian and you can try some?
OK, so now,
we tip the omelette off slowly and
so that it folds in half.
Man, am I looking forward to this. Stand aside, civilians.
Finish it off
with cheese and parsley sprinkled on top.
Oh, it's looking good!
Do you want me to put it on a camouflage tablecloth
-so that you feel better?
No, seriously though, nothing beats fresh eggs.
-Seriously, you should try some.
Elektra, you just ate ham.
Uh-oh, the veggie ate some!
What do you feel?
No, it's fine.
I am no longer a vegetarian!
-I messed up my omelette for you.
Does this bring it all back, Johnny? The egg challenge?
Yeah. Yeah, that was a giggle.
Yeah. Cos, you know, it just... It feels like I missed out.
Mm. Yeah, no. You missed a good one.
Yeah. I really did!
