Scrambled Omelet Recipes

Eggs for Dinner

I was rummaging around my kitchen looking for something filling, hot and good to eat. I wasn't having much luck until I heard a little ditty coming from my living room TV. Fraizer was going off and you've guessed it he was singing about salad and scrambled eggs.

I quickly looked through my refrigerator to see what I could do about a salad. Oh yes, there was plenty to choose for for a great salad. Now the eggs. I really didn't want to go with just plain scrambled eggs. That's when omelets popped into my head. I like my omelet with all the good stuff mixed in with the eggs so I make scrambled omelets. They're kind of like the scramblers you can get in a restaurant.

Anyway I decided to share a few of my favorites. One of the best things about them is they all serve one person so you don't have to figure out how to cut them down. Happy eating.

Benefits of eating eggs

Have you hear the expression "Incredible, edible eggs"? That little expression set me to finding out why someone would thing they were so incredible. For years I had bee hearing that they were filled with cholesterol.

I found out there was plenty of reason to call them incredible. For instance:

  • Even though an egg contains over half of the daily minimum requirement of cholesterol, it does not raise the cholesterol level of your body. Your liver simply produces less cholesterol. Eggs raise your good cholesterol.
  • Eggs contain antioxidants that build up the retina of the eye. They have also been known to help to reduce the risk of cataracts and macular degeneration.
  • Good news for dieters: eggs are filling. It has been shown that including eggs in your diet help them eat less during their day because they are so filling.

      These omelets sound A-MAZE-ING! Speaking of hearing things on TV, the other day on a IHOP commercial I was surprised to learn that IHOP's omelets are so fluffy because they add a splash of pancake batter. I thought that was really interesting. Wonderful hub, voting up!

      Morning Girls.

      By me it's always a toss-up between chicken and an omelet which comes onto the table. That's probably why my wife does most of the cooking for a better variety of meals.

      Wonderful hub with some nice changes to my standard omelet.

      Omelet sounds rather simple and easy, but as breakfast food and with all those (wonderful) ideas to vary and entertain the taste buds, it is like magic. Eggs are my favorite items for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Nice hub, sharing with friends.

      My stomach was starting to rumble and I was thinking about what to make for lunch and saw your hub pop into the feed. Now I know what I'm going to have for lunch today. I have all the ingredients on hand for your Avocado Omelette. I tend to make my omelettes the same way as you do ... scrambled. I find this way much easier than trying to make the traditional one. Thanks for the recipe and now I'm off to make lunch .
