View Full Version : What veggies have you tried in an omelet?

02-10-2007, 04:19 AM
So every morning i make an omelet with 6 eggwhites and a yolk..i've been using just green peppers. Well this morning, i did 1 ounce of each green peppers, onions, and mushrooms. I cooked up the veggies while the eggs and the oats were cooking, and they came out perfect. So i laid them in the middle of the omelet and folded it over, and then sat down and ate it. Wasn't really feeling the mushrooms, although the onions and peppers were good...but what other veggies would be good to go in an omelet? I was just using the mushrooms since they're so good for you, but im sure there's another veggie i could replace it with that tastes good...so lmk..thanks!

omg brocolli + EGGS = AMAZING

anything works with an egg/white omlet ive tried just about every veggie in my eggs and it always works out. Potatoes, Sweet Potatoes, SPinach, Brocolli, Cabbage, Celerly, Tomatoes, Peppers, Kale, Mushroom, Spaghiti Squash, Acorn Squash, Can Pumpkin, Corn, Asparagus, brussle sprouts.

Ive yet to make an egg dish i didnt like, try brocolli or brussle sprouts or potatoes they really hit the spot omlet wise.

I just went to this old homestyle place up in the mountains last weekend. I had the most amazing omelet that consisted of:
-grilled onions
-light cheddar cheese
-egg whites
-sundried tomatos

It was awesome! When i usually order omelets, i just throw in all the veggies.... i love em all.

Spinach Omelette is my favourite :D

I just go to the fridge and grab all the veggies I can get a hold of. Broc, peppers, japs, spinach, sauerkraut,ect..., whatever you like. I will also have chicken breast and I don't do a real omlet, I just throw it all together scrambled style.

i like to keep it simple with onions and greens (spinach,turnip or collard).

if you get the frozen greens (or any frozen veg) they are way easy:
dump them frozen into the pan, shake in some dried chopped onion and add 1/4cup of water and cover. cook them for a couple minutes (until the veggies are no longer hard) then dump your egg mixture right on top and cover again...cook two minutes and done!

the water steams everything up (when covered) and cooks it fast...killer!

I like red peppers, green peppers, onions, and sometimes tomato. I like my eggs really spicy. I dump so much cayenne pepper and black pepper on them it ain't even funny. Just a couple days ago though I discovered the orgasm that is Frank's Red Hot Sauce. Iv'e recently been LOADING up on that stuff in my eggs. I freaking love it. I suggest you try it out if you like spicy stuff.
