Best Omelet Recipes

My omelet recipes are requested all the time. I include several recipes and filling ideas that you can use, including my baked omelet.

More easy breakfast recipes above and at the end of the page.

Omelet Recipes


2 TBS butter
3 eggs
2 TBS heavy cream
1/8 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp homemade garlic powder
1/4 tsp homemade onion powder
kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
2 TBS butter
1/2 cup Co-Jack cheese (Colby and Monterey Jack cheese) shredded
1 green onion, finely chopped (optional)

Whisk the eggs with the cream, baking powder, garlic and onion powder, salt and pepper.

Heat an 8-inch skillet over medium heat; add the butter and swirl to coat the entire bottom of the pan.

Pour the whisked eggs into the skillet; let set slightly. Using a heat-proof spatula, push eggs from edge towards the center; tilt pan to let egg fill the spaces.

Repeat until omelet if JUST set (about 1-2 minutes). Sprinkle the grated cheese down the center of the omelet. Using the same spatula, gently fold the omelet over the cheese. Tilt skillet and slide the filled omelet onto a serving plate. I have more omelet recipes (filling ideas) further down the page.

Omelet Recipes - Filling Ideas

  • Instead of giving you omelet recipes, I thought the filling list would be a great start to an awesome omelet.

    Cheese - pepper jack and cheddar cheese.

    Denver - ham, onion, green pepper & cheddar cheese

    Bacon, grilled asparagus, little bit of tomato and your favorite cheese

    Cheese steak...a chopped up Steak-um, sauteed onions, some mozzarella cheese and a little tomato sauce on the side. Add sauteed green peppers for a Philadelphia cheese steak omelet.

    Italian sausage and sauteed green peppers and onions.

    Feta cheese and kalamata olives

    Turkey and dressing with gravy on top - cranberries on the side.

    Spinach, feta and a bit of mozzarella cheese.

    Take eggs, add a touch of cream, cinnamon, and sugar. Then for the filling use berries mixed with a "sauce" made of pureed berries (in the blender) sugar and lemon juice. Then add dollops of sweetened sour cream on top or whipped cream.

Stir extra-sharp cheddar into the eggs and then fill the omelet with a little smoky chipotle pepper salsa.

Also: beat softened cream cheese into the eggs, saute a little onion in butter, add the cream cheese and egg mixture & cook and then fill with cheddar cheese.

Low Carbohydrate Omelet Crepes

3 large or ex-large eggs
dash salt
1/3 cup heavy cream

Beat all together in a blender and cook 1/4 cup of mixture in a non-stick skillet as you would any crepe.

Makes about 4 crepes and fill them with your favorite toppings.

With the crepes above, you can fill them with shredded Monterey Jack cheese, cover them with enchilada sauce and heat them in the microwave until the cheese is melted and serve with sour cream and avocado slices.

Bacon, lettuce, tomato and homemade mayonnaise

Avocado & Bacon

Ham and Cheese

Pizza Omelet - Fill with green peppers, mushrooms, pepperoni and mozzarella cheese, cover in warm pizza sauce and melt a little more cheese on top under the broiler.

Black Olives, Feta, and Capers

Reuben - corned beef, sauerkraut, provolone cheese and homemade Thousand Island Dressing

Here's another one of my omelet recipes that is a snap to make and tastes wonderful. This recipe is just a guide, and there is no end to the ingredients you add to it. Feta and spinach, ham and swiss, sausage, seafood, etc. If you don't have sour cream, just use 1 cup of milk instead.


8 eggs
1/2 cup homemade sour cream
1/2 cup milk
1/2 tsp homemade garlic powder
1 tsp homemade onion powder
1 tsp chives
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/2 to 3/4 cup bacon, fried and crumbled
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded

PREHEAT oven to 350 degrees and grease a glass 8x8 casserole dish with some of the leftover bacon grease.

Fry bacon, drain and crumble. Beat the first eight ingredients together in a mixing bowl. Add the bacon and cheese. Pour into the prepared baking dish and bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour.

Serve with salsa, pico de gallo, sour cream, melted cheese, etc.
