The Powerhouse Omelet

Updated on November 23, 2012
5 stars from 5 ratings of The Powerhouse Omelet

This Will Stick to Your Ribs

Well, I don't know if I want this sticking to anything, but it will fill you up. I usually walk six miles a day, and something good and hearty is important to my well-being. If this can keep me happy for four hours, I must be doing something right. After this meal, along with a steaming cup of coffee, I can handle a 3-mile hike with the camera for a photo shoot, and my stomach isn't growling. This is one of my own personal recipes, and remember that eggs aren't just for breakfast anymore.


Cook Time

Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 15 min
Ready in: 25 min
Yields: serves two


  • 3 eggs
  • 3 slices Swiss cheese
  • 1/3 can Rotel chunky tomatoes and jalapenos
  • spaghetti sauce to taste
  • your favorite hot sauce to taste
  • 2 medium potatos, sliced and chunked
  • 1 medium onion
  1. Heat cast iron frying pan to medium, a good five minutes. Add one tablespoon of oil to pan.
  2. Beat three large eggs for omelet, cook both sides, roughly 2-3 minutes each side.
  3. Place the three slices of Swiss cheese on half of omelet, fanned out. Add 1/3 can of tomatoes and jalapenos. Close up omelet and allow to cook just long enough for cheese to melt and vegetables to warm.
  4. Pan fry chunked potatoes before omelet, approximately seven minutes on each side. Feel free to add salt and pepper, as well as sliced onions for extra flavor.
  5. Mix a few drops of your favorite hot sauce with the spaghetti sauce and place over the omelet to kick it up a notch.

      Very true, Gabriela. I like the way that you have thought this through.

      Hi, good video, but do you realise that as long as your pool gets diecrt sunlight too, you're actually better off just throwing the black tubing straight in the pool. Even better, buy a $10 sheet of black plastic a few rocks and put it in the bottom of the pool. No pump required and all heat transferred diredt to the water.

      I voted this recipe up because it sounds like a real kick start to anyday. But to be absolutely truthful I would not touch it with a ten foot pole, if its not basically bland and smooth it does not stand a chance with my taste buds. The blander the better. I do my family's head in.

      Yes, Nell 3 miles to and from the lake and 3 miles back and forth to use a computer(most days, but not all). I also walk back and forth to work, a total of a mile. Today, the manager fed us all breakfast, an added bonus.

      Any time, Mhatter. Give it a try on a cold morning, and it will be just the ticket with those jalapenos.

      That sounds a good omelette - I'm a fan of them too, I specially like having peas in mine.

      Sounds delicious and easy! I just may have to try that one soon. Figure if it keeps you satisfied for that long, with all the walking you do, it must be filling.

      Rated up!
