How do you like your omelettes?

I find plain or herb omelettes too bland. Whatever else I put in them, they always have to have some strong cheese as well. Yesterday I made omelettes for lunch and added what was left of the ham I'd cooked on Christmas Eve, chopped quite small, along with some cheese of course. What do you put in your omelettes?

My favourite is with mushrooms, onions, tomato and mackerel (canned) seasoned with black pepper no salt. But I also do like a plain omelette with nothing in it. Both served with bread or tast...yummy

I live in Spain, and here, they always put potatoes in their omelettes - or 'tortillas' as they are known here. Fry some thin slices of potato with onion and garlic until soft, then add herbs and seasoning of your choice, finally the eggs. The way we cook our omelettes is, once the bottom has set, put the pan under a hot grill to cook the top. You can't really flip an omelette with potatoes in. You can add chopped tomatoes , mushrooms, peppers and anything else you fancy or have available. The tortilla is really versatile, and much more filling than an ordinary omelette.

Hi Sandra, I would not say that tortillas and omelettes are the same thing. The french omelette is somthing that you can fold in the pan. When I make tortillas, I have an old lid (la tapa de una olla vieja)to help me turn it without spilling. Happy posting!

I agree with you that cheese is de rigour in omelettes. I do like the occasional plain or herb omelette, but mostly I, too, must have cheese, or a combination thereof. I like spinach in my omelettes, scallions, which are delicate and I sometimes combine with cream cheese, and also asparagus, avocado, and other veggies. I also like sausage, ham, bacon, or all of the above. But, you have to get proportions right or it gets to be "too much" of a good thing. One of my favorites is a Spanish Omelette, with onions, peppers, mushrooms, tomato sauce, and cheese. A farmer's omelette with potatoes, meats, and cheese is good, too. There are so many variations. Seafood omelettes, such as crab or shrimp are good. Almost any leftover you like can be incorporated into an omelette. Many people like jelly omelettes. I prefer savory omelettes to sweet.

I like it the best with fried chopped ham and the cheese mixet with the eggs. when the ham is fried you put in the eggs mixed with the cheese and they melt together. It's simply delicious. Or you can try another one: frie some chopped onion, then put the chopped ham or salami or whatever meat you like and then put the omlette in mixed with cheese, green pepers and if you want it juicy some totatoes are excelent. Bon apetit and bon MyLotting;)

I love omelettes and as I live alone, it´s very easy to make one and eat it while watching TV. I make them with anything that I have on hand. Many times it is cheese and ham or bacon, but I also make them with any kind of leftovers that I have in the fridge, A handfull of cooked rice (I don´t throw it away), some chives and diced cheese make a wonderful omelette. Another one I love is when I have some string beans (I steam cook them al dente)and add parmesan cheese. I think I could spend the rest of the day talking about my favorite omelettes.I love them every single way. Happy posting!

I like an omelette every few days. Like you I often put in ham, tomatoes and cheese. Sometimes I have a little onion or if I'm feeling really daring. I have them plain! My Dad makes kipper omelettes! They're every bit as disgusting as they sound!
