I make pizza omelets with chopped pepperoni, mushrooms, Mozzarella cheese and a little tomato sauce. Very delicious.

I made mine with sauteed mushrooms and shredded Cheddar. Also topped it with a dash of Tabasco. Loved it!

I beat in a teaspoon of milk for each I egg I use. I think it makes the omelet a little more moist and tender.

I'm not a perfect cook. But after a few substitutes and a little egg incident, it turned out to be the most delicious breakfast starting 2011. Thank you!

This recipe could be more specific... I used a small handful of shredded pepper jack cheese and about a 1/3 of an avocado (slices) and it was very good.

Good basic recipe to have around. We made ham and cheese with peppers and onions. Crab meat sounds good... maybe next time.
