Onion Omelette and Balsamic Vinegar of Modena

Ingredients for 2 people

  • 4 eggs
  • 2 spring onions
  • 50 gr of grated Parmigiano Reggiano
  • salt
  • 1 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 spoons of Balsamic Vinegar of Modena


After washing the onions, cut them into small thin slices and sauté them in the pan with Olive Oil. Let them brown until golden brown.

In the meantime, prepare the eggs in a separate bowl. Mix them with the Parmesan and a pinch of salt.

At this point, pour the liquid into the pan with the onion and cook for about 6 minutes per side until the omelette will have a golden colour and assume a good consistency.

Serve and pour over the Balsamic Vinegar of Modena. We use the Traditional one as lovers of this product and “purists” from Modena.
We remind you Traditional Balsamic should always be raw on food.

Anaesthetic touch to our Onion Omelette and Balsamic Vinegar is given by adding few chips of Carasau bread which will give the dish some crispness.
