^did not have time for all that. Threw it all with milk and pesto into hot iron skillet. Was fine. But it just can´t eat eggs in the morning. Blech.

No photo. it looked horrible (green!) I´m not really an omelette person, but I had 6 eggs and milk to eat up this morning. that was the quickest. Again. blech.

imho coffee is just fine at breakfast!

unless at a nice hotel breakfast buffet, then i want bacon, those teeny coissants with butter and apricot jam, and coffee.

There’s no milk in an omelette.

This is an omelette:

Absolutely no milk or cream in an omelette or scrambled, as a matter of course.

I have been misled a couple of times to much physical distress.

But on the other hand, gnd can eat a 6 egg “omelette” and not many people can do that.

Bet she didn’t shit for days.

I LOVE that movie - Big Night.

Also love the Japanese Sushi/Bento accompaniment, variation of omelette - Tamagoyaki. Very simple, too.

I always put milk in my "omelette". I'll use quotation marks to differentiate from authentic omelettes.

Mostly, they have to have cheese. I also like tomatoes to make them a bit moister.

Pretty much this except the cheese is optional and I like some herbs in it.

I eat "omelettes" that don't have any cheese in them and may involve a splash of milk to make the eggs a bit fluffier.

If anyone wants to go all Mean Girls on me over this, please feel free.

From time to time I make omelettes for breakfast or dinner. I will say mine are more "American" style than "French style". Most common is bacon with sauteed onions and green peppers with cheddar. Most common because that is my wife's favorite. I like a Denver omelette. I also like one with sausage. A place we use to go for breakfast made a really good seafood omelette which I have tried to replicate and mine are ok, but I can't quite figure out what they did.

I hate most omelettes out, they pour either per-beaten or more likely packaged eggs into a pan. Never stir them, put the fillers in immediately so they are in the egg rather than on the egg. You get a flat overcooked egg disk with what should be filling just incorporated into the egg.

I make a three or four egg omelette.
Add a little fuller fat milk.

Cook on low heat.
Add ingredients on top on one side
Precooked mushrooms, diced cheese, diced precooked bacon
Flip one side on top of ingredients
After a minute or two, flip the omelette half onto other side

Serve to 2 people

I almost never make omelettes. Didn't realize milk in them was a thing.

I do like cheese with eggs though.

I have never made an omelette. A scramble is just as good to me, and easier to scoop up with toast.

usually spinach and mushrooms for me.

If I don't make a point of getting vegetables early and often, it won't happen nearly enough.

Yes, the Italians are wrong, lots of dishes that combine cheese and seafood are wonderful. Besides, food rules are for people lacking imagination. Well, except for my food rules. Like mustard on sausages, not ketchup.

Do you include hotdogs in the sausage group?

Yes, no adult should put ketchup on a hot dog. Those are my rules so they are right.
