Eggs are versatile cooking ingredients and always that good whichever way they are cooked.
This is an example.  It is so simple with addition of a few ingredients, fried, the end result is awesome.  Have to resort to easy recipes like this these days as my mother in-law has been in hospital since end December 2017 until now.  The family cannot be eating out for all meals.  Hope she recovers well and soon after undergoing a life saving operation a few days ago.  
Recipe adapted from Chinese Cooking [Natural Recipes For Healthy Living] by Charmaine Solomon with modifications
[serves 3-4]
[12 total grams carbohydrate]
4 eggs
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
some cooking oil for frying
1 clove garlic - finely chopped or grated
1/2 tsp grated ginger
1/2 cup finely chopped BBQ pork [char siew]
some finely chopped spring onions
  1. Heat 1/2 tablespoon oil in a non stick pan, fry garlic, ginger and BBQ pork over medium heat  until soft [about 1 minute].
  2. Mix with eggs and seasoning.
  3. Heat pan with a little oil and fry 1/4 cup of the mixture at a time.  You may fry it into a big omelette.  Fry until golden brown before flipping over to fry the other side.

Hi Kimmy! I love omelettes but I am hopeless at flipping them in once piece. Hope your mil is on the road to recovery.

Thanks Phong Hong, we are grateful to God the life saving op was a success without much complications for her age [81]. She is still in HDU, recovering slowly but stable. I happened to buy a non stick pan [Nadiya brand]. It is very useful for pan-frying and braising.

Omelettes are often the rescuer when we want a simple meal, or to add just another extra dish on the table! Our favourite! I have never tried with char siu, but always make with lap cheong.

Hi Joyce, adding lap cheong is what I commonly do and the family is never tired of it. Even a simple fried sunny up eggs, they will grab at it first, hehehe!
