Love omelets!

Goat cheese, artichoke hearts and arugula is my fave. The arugula wilts like spinach...

How about:
Smoked salmon w/ dill mayo dressing
Omelet with olive tapinade
Sliced zucchini, chopped tomatoes and havarti

Just to intimidate you further, Margaret Costa in her "Four Seasons Cookbook" spoke of a chef telling her that when he trained he had to make an omelette using the back burner of a gas stove with the front burner which was under his wrist turned up full - If his wrist burned the omelette was cooked too much. Oo-er!

I like my omelette "baveuse" or slightly runny in the middle but I'm lucky in that I can trust the source of the eggs. Many people, particularly the old and/or the frail shouldn't eat them like this.

I like many fillings in a French style omelet, but my favorite has to be thin sliced, ripe tomato and garlic powder. Don't ask me why, but I like the powder better than fresh garlic in this omelet.

Looks to me that what to add to an omelet is......

Anything your heart desires.

I like spinach and bacon with a wee bit of thyme.

Did you see the Julia child video earlier in this thread? That didn't look intimidating to me.

No, I didn't! I'll look through the thread and see if I can find it.

I could have sworn it was in this thread. I love how she shows her oopsies and how to fix them. I also love how she keeps talking about having fun while you cook.
