USE PIZZA TOPPINGS!

Pour eggs into a nonstick skillet.  Cook, then flatten them with a rubber spatula. Flip, add mozzarella cheese, pepperoni, salami and salsa.  If the omelet comes apart, that’s OK.  Pizza scrambled eggs are delicious, too.

TRY SWEETNESS!

Make a very thin omelet and tuck ripe bananas inside.  Cover with powered sugar; drizzle with chocolate sauce.  It tastes like a banana souffle.

ADD RICHNESS! 

My go-to omelet fillings are simple:  goat cheese, ham and herbs such as parsley, tarragon or chives.  The combination makes a fresh and flavorful dish. Don’t overcook; it shouldn’t be brown or crisp.

EASY DOES IT! 

Whisk eggs slightly, then fold in fresh herbs and a spoonful or two of plain yogurt, to add creaminess and tang to the batter. Cook in a mix of butter and extra-virgin olive oil.

GO MIDWESTERN!

Fry kielbasa slices in a shallow pan; remove them when they’re golden.  Use the oil in the pan to dry diced red potatoes and onions.  Next, add the sausage and pour eggs on top.
