A Couple Of Good Omelets

After learning about our  previous oyster-a-thons, good friend David asked to come to the next one and even offered to buy the oysters – an automatic invitation for sure.  His wife Peggy came and this time, we had raw, char-grilled, and Rockefeller (Peggy's favorite) - I had a small bowl of the spinach topping left over, which sounded like a great stuffing for an omelet.  We ate the entire box of oysters though - they we small ones from the Texas gulf coast.

For my omelet, I warmed the oysters Rockefeller topping in the microwave and let some of Cathy’s (Wives With Knives) seafood remoulade come to room temperature.  I cooked the eggs with a lid to help the top set then added the spinach mix and some crumbled Feta cheese before folding.  I topped with a little remoulade and sided with an toasted English muffin and a couple slices of Canadian bacon (more on this later).

A few days prior to his one, Bev had made an omelet stuffed with some leftover sautéed mushrooms and onions and steamed broccoli.  She topped it with some chopped tomato and smoked Gouda cheese.

Both were delicious and I’d love either one again but I should have omitted either the bacon or the muffin from the first one - couldn't eat it all.

I'm now responding to your comments and hoping you will stop back by - photos best if enlarged by clicking on them.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by Almost Heaven South.

    1. Thanks Sam. The first box I got was completely full, but this one was only 3/4 full and I thought some had been removed, but it had over a hundred.

  3. I love that remoulade sauce so much and would have never thought to put it on an omelet. Good looking omelets Larry and Bev.

    1. Thanks LA - I liked it with the sauce, Bev said she wasn't so sure - guess it depends upon how much you like the sauce.

  4. Larry, You continue to prove that you are the master of egg use and breakfast in general! Bev's contribution was right up Laurie's alley too... Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  6. I love omelets and we splurge and have an omelet every Saturday... Hubby makes great omelets--with lots of veggies, bacon, ham, and cheese... SO wonderful!!!!

    Yours look great too --especially that last one. I like fried oysters --but that's about it when it comes to oysters.

    Have a great day.. Stay DRY.

    1. Thanks Betsy - I look at an omelet like a pizza crust - a canvas to begin building upon.

  7. Now I'm wishing I made breakfast for dinner instead of the warmed up potato soup from the day before! I never think about adding things to my eggs except ham, onions and cheese. I've never had an oyster and doubt it if I ever will! lol

    1. I can eat breakfast food anytime of the day. See my response above to Betsy. Oysters are generally a love or a no-way food and I was a no-way into my 30's.

  8. Both omelets sound great. I can see why you couldn't finish yours...it was huge.

  11. Both of these omelets look delicious. We had omelets this morning, although they were not quite as 'fancy' as yours.

  12. I had to go look at Cathy's remoulade. Mistake. Now I am craving Dungeoness crabs, which I have found in Knoxville exactly twice and that was in 2001.

    The omelets look nice and fluffy, just the way I like them.
