My fav usually contains some meat, veggies, and cheeses...I love FAT, well-filled ones....slices of tomatoes on top are pretty too...a dollup of Sour Cream, some fresh Basil or Chives for taste/color..

Sometimes, the Filling is dictated by what's left over from Dinner the night before.. (yeah, even shrimp)

Tried this while on a business trip a few months back, and it's been the family's favorite since:

Bacon, Chopped Asparagus, tiny bit of tomatoes, and your favorite cheese. O M G!

Pizza Omelet

I love making a pizza omelet with pepperoni, mozzerala cheese, a little pizza sauce, and sometimes I add green pepper and onions. I love trying all sorts of different fillings for omelets and plenty of days I just enjoy an omelet with pepper jack and chedder cheese.

For something different, I have made "sweet" omlettes a couple times.

I take eggs, add a touch of cream, cinnamon, and splenda. Then for the filling I use berries mixed with a "sauce" made of purreed berries (in the blender) and splenda and lemon juice. Then add some dollops of sweetened sour cream on top or whipped cream. Its kinda like a crepe (I haven't figured out how to make low carb crepes yet... and I try to stick to "whole food" recipes, with out carbquik, etc.)

I stir extra-sharp cheddar into the eggs and then fill the omelet with a little smoky chipotle pepper salsa.

Also: beat softened cream cheese into the eggs, saute a little onion in butter, add the cream cheese and egg mixture & cook and then fill with cheddar cheese.

Cheese! An omelette is not an omelette without gobs of cheese.
I like the Big Steak Omelette from IHOP too.

Low Carb Crepes

3 large or ex-large eggs
dash salt
2 T. vital wheat gluten
1/3 cup heavy cream

Beat all together in a blender and cook 1/4 cup of mixture in a non-stick skillet as you would any crepe.

Makes about 4 crepes

I make these a lot, I sometimes slice them into thick slices and use them as Lasagna noodles.

I also roll them up and slice them very thinly and use them as a base for my Chicken Parmesan.

I also use them for my version of Huevos Rancheros

4 eggs
1 cup salsa
Monterey Jack cheese-grated
4 crepes
oil
salt to taste

Heat oil in small frying pan, fry your crepe in a little oil to get it brown and crisp, remove the crepes to a plate and spread some grated cheese onto the hot crepe.

Then cook each egg in the same oil until the whites are firm and yolks are runny,salt to taste. Place one egg on each crepe.

Heat the salsa in the pan and pour 1/4 cup over the top of each egg. Top with a big dollop of sour cream and serve.

You can also roll up some Monterey Jack cheese in them, cover them with enchilada sauce and heat them in the microwave until the cheese is melted and serve with sour cream and avocado slices.


Oh yea, you can use them as crepes too.
