Tortang Talong (Eggplant Omelet)

Tortang Talong (Eggplant omelet) is one of my favorite egg recipes but I never ever cooked it right the way my Mama Tessie cooks it nor Alma's (Airene's helper).  I just don't know where I always go wrong.

My sister Kristine often complains that it's tasteless which I definitely agree :-( So, anyone who can correct this recipe or my procedure perhaps?  Pleeeeaaase.

Ingredients :

Eggplants - 2 pcs

Eggs, beaten - 2 medium size

Onion, diced - 1 medium bulb

Salt and pepper to taste

Oil for frying

Cooking Procedure :

1) Broil the eggplants until it’s cook and tender.  I usually put it on top of the stove’s open flame.  Peel of the charred skin but don’t take out its stem.  Flatten the eggplants using the back of a fork then set aside.

2) Beat the eggs and season with salt and pepper.  Add the diced onion.

3) Dip the eggplant on the egg mixture one at a time.

4) Heat oil in a saucepan and fry the dipped eggplant, flipping both sides of the eggplant until it turned golden brown.  Drain on paper towels.
