Ingredients
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into tablespoons
  • 1/2 -inch piece American pancetta, cut into small dice, or 4 ounces double smoked bacon, cut into small dice
  • 1 pound baby hearty greens (collard greens, mustard greens, dandelion greens, beet greens), large stems removed if needed
  • 1/4 cup vegetable stock, chicken stock or water, more if needed
  • Few dashes chipotle hot sauce
  • Splash of chardonnay vinegar
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 large eggs
  • Chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
Directions
  • Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a 10-inch nonstick pan over medium heat. Add the pancetta and cook until golden brown and crispy and the fat has rendered, about 10 minutes. Add the greens, stock, hot sauce vinegar. Cook until the greens are just wilted, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and add another tablespoon of stock if the greens dry out before they are soft.

  • In a small nonstick pan over medium heat, add the remaining 2 tablespoons butter and cook until the butter begins to shimmer. Whisk the eggs in a bowl until light and fluffy and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Pour the eggs into the pan and let the eggs cook until the bottom starts to set, up to a minute. With a heat-resistant rubber spatula, gently push one edge of the egg into the center of the pan while tilting the pan to allow the liquid egg to flow in underneath. Repeat with the other edges, until there's no liquid left. Place the greens down the center of the omelet and roll into a cylinder. Remove to a platter, season the top with salt and pepper and top with the parsley.
