Whats in your omelette?

Nah, this isint some weird capitol one comercial... Im wondering what you guy's prefer in yours.

I just had a really awesome one.

The other day I went to super 88 and bought artificial crab and cream cheese for some crab rangoons... but here's an ironic thing... it didint taste like artificial crab (sweet) but much more like the real thing. That means I've got 3 pounds (cut into blocks) of stuff I can actually use in recipies to substitute crab.

Sooo...

Crab, chives, white pepper, sea salt and before folding in half a layer of flatened cream cheese.

Cheese! Just love cheese in mine! Be it cheddar, harvarti or parm - to me eggs and cheese go hand in hand! I also really like bell peppers (combine them with cheese and you practically have a Denver sandwich minus the bread).

Cheese most definitely!! I have been known to put all kinds of different stuff in an omelet, just depends on what I have on hand and what I feel like adding.

One of my favorite omelets is cheese, sausage, green chilies, and onions. Most of the time it depends on what I am in the mood for and like shunka what I have in the cupboard and refrigerator.

Most often, it's cheddar and bacon.

My all time favorite is mushroom and swiss. Any kind of mushroom will do, but I love a combo of shiitake, oyster and cremini best. I can also sub out swiss for any other creamy, white cheese (fontina, havarti, provolone, muenster, etc.) or fresh parmesan.

I also like jalapenos or serrano chilies and onions in my eggs. Cheese is optional if I have them this way. But a good salsa is a must.

But I also love a simple scambled egg naked (salt and pepper don't count!).

Mmm... good to see so many cheese lovers. Im a big fan of using milder cheddars or swiss.

Btw any one ever put indian curry powder in an omelette? I did once and the result was sweet and savory... totally good.
