    Thanks. I was giddy when we came home with a few pieces that hadn't been eaten last night. Potato kugel is sublime (in general, not necessarily mine) and I think it should be served at every meal! :D

    Never had kugel, potato or otherwise, so I'll take your word for it being sublime. It sure looks good.

    Took the 10" nonstick Scanpan back to Omelet Town this morning . . .

    Leftovers Omelet
    2 kinds of leftover grilled sausages, cheeses, onions, red hot finger chiles and broccoli. Toasted/buttered French country loaf. Managed to empty out quite a few baggies in the process, which felt great (and was more or less the point).

    Another quickie leftovers omelet earlier today using the Scanpan 10" nonstick . . .

    Leftovers Omelet
    This one -- with leftover charcoal-grilled cevaps, some sauteed peppers & onions from who knows when and some assorted cheeses -- did more to clean out the fridge than it did to satisfy. The flavors were kind of weird together, especially the peppers & onions, which I'd originally cooked with some vinegar. That was definitely a discordant note. :roll:

    The highlight was the toasted/buttered boule that was baked by a friend.

    Well, it looks effing brilliant! What pan did you use? I've yet to have much success with anything but nonsticks when it comes to omelets.

    For Frittata, Spanish tortillas and American omelettes I typically use my Matfer Bourgeat 9" or 12 depending on number of eggs. 3-egg French omelettes almost always my Calphalon Classic Nonstick 8-inch.

    Pictured omelette, a 4-egg, and was made in my Calphalon Classic Nonstick 10-inch.

    When my Calphalon wears out I'm going to try one or two of your beloved Scanpans.

    Okay, thanks. Don't know if I'd refer to them as 'beloved' but I do like the Scanpan nonsticks, mainly because they have endured. That attribute has come to justify their price. My most recently purchased unit was the 12.5" Pro, which is currently going for about $130 at Amazon. That's actually less than I paid back in 2016. :shock: Not much around these days that's actually cheaper than it was 6 years ago.

    I sometimes do, too but since I often take leftovers for weekday lunches, I've steered toward omelets lately, since they travel much better/easier than scrambles.

    To that end, I used up some of our weekend bbq leftovers earlier today . . .

    Not an omelet or a bachelor chow, not an imaginary story: eggs poached in flowers.
    I was trying to figure out what I could do with all the bolting mustard green rabe in my garden (the first batch of flowers I tried to make a mustard flower goma ae using tahini instead of grinding sesame seeds and I snipped too much stem, it came out stringy and bitter). I figured eggs would work, originally thinking omelet/scramble, but an online recipe suggested poaching in creamed greens.

    So I grabbed most of the flowers off the two plants, found the least-bedraggled chive blossoms left (plus some chives), chopped those up. A little sour cream (original recipe had heavy cream) diluted with water (wasn't worth opening stock or even mixing up some Better Than Boullion), while I sauteed some sweet onion and garlic in butter.

    Mise

    Added the flowers and chives, cooked a minute, then the sour cream mix plus some salt and pepper, let that come to a simmer and cracked the eggs into it and covered. Finished with a squeeze of lemon. The eggs could have gone 20 seconds less -- I like jammy but these were almost hard. Sopped up with some of SueF's potato bread. Delicious. Very little bite to the mustard when it was done, I'd add some greens next time.

    Finished

    I have never figured out how to know if the cheese that I hold in my hand will easily melt. Some do and some don't.

    Moving some leftovers, wrapped in egg, via the Scanpan 10" nonstick. After 9+ years of fairly heavy use, the nonstick coating on this pan *might* finally be failing. Will be monitoring it closely . . .

    Interesting that the breakfast sausages were 'just ok' and the other sausages that you got from them were better.

    The range was wider than I'd hoped for. Tried 6. 3 were great, 2 were okay 1, I'd describe as a work in progress.

    While I contemplate replacing my 10" nonstick Scanpan, using copious amounts of butter seems to be enough to work-around any potential issues that might be brewing . . .

    Took the advice of some chums on another board when considering replacements for my 10" Scanpan nonstick and ended up with this . . .

    Image
    Demeyere 5-Plus Stainless Steel Nonstick Skillet, 9.5"

    Initial impression is that I still prefer the Scanpan but this Demeyere pan does offer some advantages (that aren't necessarily great for omelet-making). The build is insane. The pan is way overbuilt. It's heavy and clearly is designed to retain even heat during longer cooks. But with omelets, which cook pretty fast, that's not necessarily a top priority. Also, the pan does not have rivets. Again, that's probably a big advantage in some applications but largely irrelevant when it comes to omelet-making.

    Also, this being a skillet (as opposed to a saute or frying pan), it's relatively high-sided. Again, probably great for other applications but those sides make flipping food without a utensil -- or even getting in there with a utensil -- relatively difficult. On a more personal note, the handle on the Demeyere is squared off and narrower than on the Scanpan, which has a robust, tubular handle. For me, that one's much easier to grip.

    In any case, I put the Demeyere to use earlier today . . .

    Image

    Toasted/buttered country French bread.

    The omelet was fine and it cooked fine but for me, the logistics of moving various materials around the pan were definitely impeded by its design. Like a lot of things in cooking, personal preferences can often come down to some specific details. At some point, I'll probably figure out some best uses for this pan but given that it's nonstick, they're not immediately jumping out for me.
