. . . frying pan?

Yes.  Despite rumors of my best Christmas present being a rubber band (it was fun, but it came in second), I am currently elated with my non-stick Food Network frying pan from Kohl’s.

It’s really more of a cream than white, but let’s go with a good title.

To break it in, I made an omelette with these ingredients (although a late adjustment dropped in crumbled bacon bits instead of the pepperoni).  I used some egg nog instead of milk.  Note to participants in the great 2016 eggnog-off: this one doesn’t rank highly.

It warmed up nicely on low heat – you can see the cheese (white, of course) starting to sweat and melt.

I finished topping it off with the salsa and bacon bits – the egg is firming up nicely.  The salsa spattered on the inside of the pan.  That was OK.

The omelette slid off the pan smoothly. The butter (and the pan) did its job!

And the cleanup was, as they say, a doddle.

Thank you, Mom and Dad, for another fun piece of culinary gear.
