The Loco Omelet?

After mentioning the idea of adding a little popcorn to an omelet, my wife gave me a look that said I had indeed crossed that culinary line. Still, I moved ahead with my crazy idea and the end result was good. While I still prefer the Monster Omelet recipe, this is worth a try.

The first suggestion, though, is to add about a teaspoon of chili pepper to the eggs before whisking eighty-times with the cut pieces of butter. After following the previous omelet recipe tips from my blog, get ready to "mix-it-up" when it comes to the fillings. Here's what I recommend.

blend of grated cheeses
sour cream
tablespoon or two of hot roasted peppers
diced green onions

Don't add the popcorn until just before the omelet is folded over in the pan. I actually chopped the popcorn slightly, and I didn't use more than half a cup. It adds an interesting flavor and texture dimension to the ordinary omelet. One could say that it infuses a nutty flavor into the omelet--nice once in a while, but probably not every week! Enjoy with a good cup of coffee, or, if you're brave, sprinkle it with some popcorn (the omelet--not the coffee).
