Broccoli, Pancetta Omelet & Buttermilk Chive Biscuits

Simple & savory... and my most perfect omelet folding to date! Apparently the mistake I've been making with all my previous omelet-folding attempts was just a lack of patience! This is also a great way to sneak some veggies into your breakfast or brunch. Don't be stingy with the butter in your omelet pan, otherwise you're going to have problems with sticking once you're trying to fold.

Broccoli, Pancetta Omelet via The flick of my wrist:
(Serves 2)

1 1/2 cups of roasted broccoli
2 tbsp. butter
6 slices of diced pancetta
4 eggs, scrambled
1/2 cup grated cheese

Saute pancetta in medium frying pan until crispy. Add butter and broccoli and saute until desired consistency. (I like crunchy.) Make sure your pan is still plenty greased before pouring scrambled eggs over broccoli and pancetta. Pour eggs over broccoli and pancetta and let them cook ALL the way through! Do NOT mess with them with your spatula! (This was always my mistake before.) They will cook all the way through, you just have to be patient! When the eggs are almost cooked through, add the grated cheese to melt on top of the eggs. Carefully fold the omelet in half from one edge to the other. Cut half circle omelet in half & serve!
