Note From Mr Breakfast:

I made and photographed this omelette on March 5, 2013. I halved the recipe and it easily made 2 servings. This dish really spotlights the crab. The butter makes it sweet and the vegetables and seasonings are a perfect fit. I'd like to thank "kla163" for submitting this recipe. It's a winner. I used half the amount of suggested butter and it was still great.

Butter brings out the flavor in the crab. Garlic and chopped vegetables add depth. Great for a special brunch.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank kla163 for this recipe.
