String Cheese Omelette Recipe

String cheese omelette, a delicious and very fulfilling breakfast idea from Armenian cuisine.

In Armenian it’s called: Egh u jill (եղ ու ջիլ), meaning butter and string cheese.

The dish is from Armenian region Lori, and it’s made with special kind of string cheese, which is an unsalted , fat free cheese . It doesn’t melt when cooked or heated. The cheese omelette is served with dry cilantro.






As I was thinking, the string cheese, made in California, was quite different. It melted as I started cooking, but decided to give it a go and try it anyways. Even though this dish is from my fathers region, I’ve never tried it before, shame to say.

My string cheese omelette turned out simply delicious, even with melted cheese. And instead of dry cilantro, I had it with fresh tarragon and cilantro.

Try it, especially cheese lovers will be delighted with this breakfast.
