Nothing is more delightful than a mid-morning summer brunch, but a short stack of pancakes or a plate of hash browns can go from being delicious to yet another boring menu item pretty quickly.
For foodies looking to expand their palate or change things up at their next breakfast food feast, why not try an elevated omelette with potato chips and caviar?

This recipe comes straight from the menu at Cathédrale Restaurant in New York City’s Moxy East Village. It was created by chef Jason Hall, and while it may look and taste quite luxe, it’s something any confident at-home chef can pull off.
"While doing research for the Cathédrale Menu," Hall says, "I had a version of this dish at chef Eric Frechon’s restaurant in Paris called Lazare. I always wanted to find a home for it on a menu back in NYC. The mark of any good chef is the preparation of a simple omelet, which is why it has its place on many great French restaurants.”
The chips add a crunchy texture to balance the fluffiness of the eggs, while the caviar adds a level of refinement and bold flavor to the dish that is unlike any omelette you've ever tried.
While the name of the dish may sound intimidating, the steps to create this luxe omelette are more simple than you might think. The recipe does call for a specific brand of herb cheese, but feel free to play around with that and make this omelette your own.
