These little treats are great to make for the holidays, birthdays, and other special occasions. The recipe can be varied: use your favorite chocolate, nuts, and fruit.
Anyone can pull together this no-cook treat. The parfait recipe is an example—created by the nutrition team at the Hartford HeathCare Bone & Joint Institute at Hartford Hospital—of how you can eat sensibly and healthfully without depriving yourself. . .or skipping dessert.
I love chocolate omelets because so many people seem so startled by the idea. A chocolate omelet might seem odd, but eggs take beautifully to chocolate, as anyone who has ever had a chocolate cake or chocolate pudding or a chocolate mousse or a chocolate custard—or a chocolate soufflé—knows.
A ham and cheese omelet is on every menu in every breakfast spot in the United States. It is easy to understand why: A ham and cheese omelet is comfort food, requires no fancy ingredients, and is simple to prepare.
To change it up, you can cook this omelet in the oven, like a frittata. And here’s a tip: dice and salt the eggplant and place in a colander if you think it may be bitter.
