Eggplant Omelette or Tortang Talong

Tortang Talong or Eggpant Omelette is one of  the many Filipino dishes that my husband love to eat.  I grew one   eggplant here in my garden and so far, I already cooked torta four times.

So how do I cook my tortang talong?  Here is a very simple recipe.

  • Wash  your eggplant.  Boil water in a large pot or skillet.  
  • When the water boils, drop the eggplant until it is cooked.  
  • Let it cool down a little so you can peel off the skin.  Retain the stem for  easy handling   when frying it.
  • Flatten the meat of the  eggplant  using a fork.

  • Beat some egg in a bowl and add salt, set aside.
  • Chopped some onions, tomatoes, green onions (I use chives as I have some in my garden), and if you want some more flavors, you can add  some bacon bits (I used left over steak on this one).
  • Combine the chopped veggies and meat into the eggs.
  • Then when you are ready to fry, put the flattened eggplant into the  mixture and  fry it. Sprinkle some  black pepper when you are frying it.

Now we are ready to eat, yummy!  I am a spicy lover  so I always  put sriracha sauce on top of it.  My husband uses ketchup with his.

Bon Appetit!
