The classic omelet doesn't need any other ingredient to make it more delicious but if you have ingredients that need to or can be used, why not elevate your omelet to something that is more filling and more satisfying?
Take a good look in your kitchen, your shelves, and your refrigerator, and see what ingredients you have to use for your omelet. If you need ideas on how to do just that, here are ingredient combinations you can use to help you make a fantastic egg meal:
1. Potato Omelet Recipe
No need to go too fancy with your omelet. For this easy recipe, potato cubes are gently fried until tender before the beaten eggs are poured over and then cooked until fluffy.
2. Hot Dog and Potatoes Omelet Recipe
That lone hot dog does not need to stay in your freezer! Chop it up and pair it with some tender potato cubes for this easy omelet recipe that you can easily make for breakfast. Kids will fall in love with this version.
3. Chicken Omelet Recipe
This chicken omelet gets a little fancy with its preparation but it really is a leveled up version of the one you can get from a restaurant. This uses a basil and cheese omelet stuffed with a simple pan-fried chicken breast slathered with some tomato salsa to make it heartier and more appetizing.
4. Spinach Omelet Recipe
If you have some cheese, kangkong, and eggs, this omelet is the easy omelet recipe you want when you want an incredibly cheesy omelet with a touch of freshness.
5. Bacon, Mushroom, and Spinach Omelet Recipe
Got bacon? Mushrooms and kangkong, too? Then you can make this omelet easily. This combination is a great mix of ingredients you might find separate on your plate but when its' combined in this way, you get a perfect bite every time.
6. Steamed Fish Omelet Recipe
This richly flavorful and savory dish is an interesting omelet. A fish fillet seasoned with chili garlic paste is left whole in this omelet but that's not all. The fish is placed in a llanera—yes, the same container you use for your leche flan—and eggs and coconut milk mix is poured over it. Just like leche flan, cover this and steam it until cooked through.
7. Steak Omelet Recipe
Take a detour from your usual steak and eggs meal to make this instead. If you have ever had that precious egg yolk break when making your usual sunny-side up fried eggs, this is a great way to salvage that egg instead of reaching for another egg. Transform that egg into an omelet and stuff succulent slices of your steak inside. Easy fix!
8. Beef Steak Omurice Recipe
If there was an omelet that takes all the parts of a meal you want into one dish, the Japanese omurice is the omelet you want on your plate. Omurice or an omelet and Japanese rice combination is the ultimate egg dish! As the name implies, this is a Japanese fried rice recipe stuffed and folded in a wrapper made of eggs. This all-in-one meal is the filling, satisfying, and hearty omelet meal that you can actually easily make at home.
