Cooking omelettes ?

How can I use eggs with different veggies and cook under the broiler?

You're probably thinking more of a "frittata" than a true omelette. Frittatas are thicker & are usually cut into wedges like a pie.

The gist of the method is to cook your vegetables first & then add them to your eggs (anywhere from 6 to 12) in a buttered oven-safe pan. Once the eggs start to set on the stovetop, the dish is sometimes finished off in the oven - either baked or broiled lightly, especially if one has cheese that needs melting.

Is this what you're thinking of?

When doing eggs with any veggie, I usually pre-cook the veggies first. I use a lot of left over things like asparagus,potatoes,artichokes,spinach the like. I chop the veggies, then I saute some onion and garlic, when soft add the veggies, add herbs, beat my eggs mix with the warm veggie mix, add some parmesan cheese, salt and pepper, pour into a buttered baking dish and bake, I don't broil. Bake at 400 til eggs are set firm,and top is golden..Here we call it a torta.

Some would say it's a fritata, whatever the name, it disapears very quickly
Is there is something specific you want to try?

I was wondering if you were thinking of a frittata myself.
