  1. Prepare the filling by stirring Dijon mustard into chicken broth in a saucepan until dissolved. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat, then add 1/4 cup cream and 2 tablespoons butter. Reduce heat to medium, and simmer until reduced by half, then stir in crab and shrimp; keep warm over low heat.
  2. Prepare the sauce by warming 1/4 cup cream, and 1 teaspoon mustard over medium heat. Once hot, whisk in the shredded cheese, then season to taste with nutmeg, salt, and pepper. Keep warm over low heat.
  3. Whisk eggs, 1/4 cup cream, salt, and pepper together until smooth. Heat an 8-inch non-stick skillet over medium heat, and lightly oil with cooking spray. Pour 1/4 cup of the egg mixture into hot pan, and swirl to make a thin, even layer of egg. Cook until firmed, then flip and cook for a few seconds more to firm the other side.
  4. To prepare omelets, spoon some of the seafood filling into the lower half of each omelet. Roll up into a cylinder. Serve 2 per person bathed with Cheddar sauce.

The only other place you can get an omlet like this is on a cruise ship. Super recipe. worth all the effort. Thanks Jennyw

I made this for dinner and wouldn't change a thing. I didn't think it took too much time like the previous post.

Unbelievably good!! I made this with snowcrab legs and fresh shrimp (they're SO cheap atm). The only things I did differently were to make the omelettes with milk instead of cream, I used extra-...

Sorry...this just was "ok"....nothing special. I had really looked forward to surprising DH with this one. He liked it but said it needed alot of "stuff" added to make it over the top, so to s...

Very good. We had some leftover Dungeness crab from the night before and this was a perfect use for it. We did not need the shrimp as we had enough crab. The filling was a perfect mixture that a...

I had such high hopes for this one. I was very disappointed in what turned out to be a major mistake in serving this to my family.
