Dinner for One! Crab and Cheese Omelet

Hubby was working late and I had to make dinner for one. I wanted something that was quick to make and clean up and healthy. I love omelets for any meal so thought I’d throw one together for dinner for myself.

Six years ago when I moved to Boston, I stayed with my brother a few days. He made me a crab meat and cheese omelet. It’s my standard omelet ever. I had some leftover tomato/onion/cilantro mixture from making bruschetta the other day and an avocado that I thought would be great in my standard omelet.

Omelet (by ME!)
2 eggs – I use 1/2 cup Egg Beaters
~1 Tbsp milk – I use Silk Light Vanilla soymilk
Shredded Cheese – I use “Veggie” dairy-free shredded cheddar
1/2 serving imitation crab meat – chopped (comes out to 1 stick if you buy in the stick form)
1/4 cup tomato/onion/cilantro mixture
1/4 cup diced avocado

** Note: make your omelet however you like with whatever ingredients you have on hand

I’m going to assume that you know how to make an omelet. Most people have their own unique process so I’m just going to list the steps I take. Do what you’re comfortable with doing when making your omelet.

Mist some oil into small skillet. Turn heat on Medium.

Beat eggs and milk. Pour into skillet. Scrape sides with spatula and move egg around to evenly coat the skillet.

Add ingredients (minus cheese) to 1/2 of the egg. Cook a few minutes. Add cheese to filling. Turn egg over onto itself to form omelet. Allow to cook a few more minutes to melt cheese.

Enjoy!

    love your adaptations- and i agree, one-pot meals usually need more veggies!

      Not that this meal is in any way healthy, but at least bumping up the veggies (and the servings) reduces the amount of pure indulgence per serving…

    Love all the changes you made to this! And I agree- the more veggies, the merrier 🙂

    I love that idea to just throw extra veggies in. I always have some leftover unused veggies going bad in the fridge after I’ve used some for a recipe. The biscuits on this look amazing.

    This looks rich and satisfying. I love the idea of biscuits on top rather than pie crust. Cream cheese chive biscuits sound especially delicious!

      I definitely plan to make these biscuits again some time. They’d be delicious even without the creamy pot pie filling under them.

    I love the thought of throwing the extra veggies in, i think a lot of people are hesitant to do so. This looks so delicious and satisfying 🙂

      Yea when it comes to cooking, I figure there’s no harm in playing with recipes. Baking is another story…

    My boyfriend, who eats a good portion of the overall meals I cook plus leftovers, hates veggies. This is a problem, because I don’t like food going bad but I can’t eat it all myself. I love recipes like this because it’d probably be SO tasty, he’d hardly even notice the abundance of green. Or he’d pick the peas out. Who knows.

    • beantownbaker — March 26th, 2013 @ 8:16 pm

      I can’t imagine hating veggies… But I agree, I think he’d hardly notice the veggies in this. It’s that creamy and delicious.

    I love that you topped this off with biscuits instead of the traditional flaky crust!

    • beantownbaker — March 28th, 2013 @ 6:53 am

      Biscuits are always the right answer 😉
