Every bite of this omelet is filled with great flavor. The cod adds just the right amount of salt, and the spinach not only tastes good, but adds good color.

Ingredients

1⁄2 lb. salt cod
8 cups spinach, sautéed
16 eggs, beaten
1 cup dry white wine
Salt and white pepper, to taste
1 cup aïoli
Sautéed peppers, if desired
Mixed greens, as needed
 

Steps

1. Soak salt cod in plenty of cold water (in the refrigerator) at least 24 hr. Change water
2-3 times. Drain cod, pat dry and gently flake, season, and reserve.

2. In a separate bowl, beat together eggs and wine; season with salt and white pepper.

3. Per omelet: Melt butter In a small nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. Pour approx. 3⁄4 cup egg mixture into pan and cook just until egg begins to firm up. Layer half of the omelet with spinach, 2 tbsp. of aïoli and 1 oz. flaked cod. With a spatula, gently fold omelet over, encasing ingredients. Continue cooking until egg is cooked through.

4. Flip omelet out of pan; serve with sautéed sweet peppers and a mixed green salad.

One of my favorite cartoons shows a commander whose soldiers are in the midst of fighting a war with bows and arrows. Without turning around, he tells a man who has come up behind him, “I’m sorry, I’m too busy to talk to you.” The man was a rifle salesman.

In today’s time-pressed world, we are all too busy. So, it can be difficult to find time to reach out to others for ideas, solutions and best practices. But as that cartoon illustrates, it’s critical to being successful. The sharing of knowledge is a pillar of FoodService Director . Through our magazine and events, we have been...

We started inviting chefs and FSDs from other districts to come prepare lunch. Through featuring different chefs and chef-inspired meals, I’ve found the students have been looking forward to coming into the cafeteria. They are willing to try new things with crazy names, and to ask for their favorite outside items turned healthy.
