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.

Great brunch. I served steamed & buttered (no salt butter) with asparagus on the side.

I loved it. Great taste. I melted Swiss cheese on top. I would do this again.

I made it with imitation crab meat - which is way, way cheaper than real. When it's in the eggs, it tastes like real crab. I would make this again.

Interesting combinations of flavors. Made this and your Crab Cake Benedict. Both were very good.

Tried it, loved it. I added some of my own touches.

I added salad shrimp and topped it with sour cream.

Wasn't sure what "garlic toes" were so we used "garlic cloves". LOL.

I made this for one. I used green onion, left out the green peppers. I used black pepper and (reduced sodium) Old Bay. My 3 yr old and 6 yr old ate most of it and neither of them will even look at an egg.

Next week I will make enough for the whole family.
