Obviously, I love sweet treats. When given a choice between sweet and savory, especially for breakfast, I’m usually tempted by baked goods.
But give me an amazing egg dish — one stuffed with seafood and cheese — and I’ll happily dig in.
And now, here’s my love letter to this Crabmeat and Mozzarella Omelet. There really just are not enough words.
I love sitting down to plan out and test recipes, but this one started with an impulse buy — I’d picked up a package of Trans-Ocean Crab Classic on a whim, after seeing that it was on sale. Then, as I went through the fridge to check on our supplies, I noticed that the expiration date was fast approaching.
So, I scrambled (bad pun!) to come up with a way to use it.
Luckily, I didn’t have to think too hard because there was a recipe right on the package for a Crabmeat and Mozzarella Omelet and it sounded so good, I gave it a try.This crabmeat and mozarella omelet feels fancy and indulgent because of the rich ingredients… Click To Tweet
So here’s what went into my omelet:
5 minPrep Time
5 minCook Time
10 minTotal Time
- -2 eggs or 1/2 cup egg substitute
- -1/3 cup crabmeat (I know it’s not technically “real” crabmeat…)
- -2 tbsp part-skim shredded mozzarella & Monterey Jack blend cheese
- -1/4 cup diced red onions and red pepper
- -salt and pepper
- Saute red pepper and onions until soft, about 5 minutes. Remove from pan.
- Add crabmeat to pan and saute with cooking spray until heated through, 2-3 minutes
- Spray pan and add eggs/egg substitute. When first side is done, flip over, fill with crabmeat, cheese, peppers, onions, salt and pepper. Fold over to form the omelet.
I honestly never thought I could love crabmeat crab-flavored seafood so much. I mean, seriously…this omelet was just fantastic. Has anyone else ever tried this combo?? Amazing, I tell you!
I served some mixed greens alongside my omelet, sprinkled with the rest of my peppers and onions and a drizzle of balsamic vinaigrette. So, so good.
But while we’re on the subject of omelets, I need to ask you all a little question…
How do YOU spell omelet? Omelet or omelette?
I honestly just keep using “omelet” because that’s what Windows Live Writer seems to tell me is correct, but I’ve seen it written both ways and am never quite sure…?
