A great hearty Aussie omelet (well, we think it is!). Well worth the effort.

I'm glad I tried this! What an interesting and different take on an omelet which after awhile always seem to taste the same no matter what "recipe" you choose. Because I was a little nervous about the curry powder (didn't want to take a chance of having to throw a shrimp omelet out if we didn't like it!) I decided to be a wimp and use only half the amount of curry called for. I'm glad I did. It gave it a pleasant nuance of flavor and aroma but any more and I know it would have been too much for us. The recipe came together perfectly with the prep and cooking method as described. Read More

(Even with the additional ingredients I'm not sure how five eggs can feed four people. I make omelettes with three eggs per serving. Also who makes omelettes in a suacepan?! Weird). Anyway I made this for Husband and was gonna fix myself a regular cheese and onion omelette as I thought the Aussie one would have too much going on. Wrong! The only thing I did differently with mine was to omit the green bell pepper. Thanks! Read More

Wow what a nice surprise.. Nice taste interesting texture! I changed the recipe a little... After the eggs has setup I put the vegetables in including the tomatoes but not the cheese. I put it in the oven @ 400 (frying pan) for about 20 minutes. Then I put the cheese on top and broiled it for about 5 minutes. Finished up like a caserole. Yum Yum. Read More

Delicious! I only used two eggs--single serving--and made ALL the filling with extra shrimp and a handful of fresh spinach then refrigerated half the filling so I can enjoy for lunch with some pasta or rice! Read More

just finished making and eating this. wow!! great!! i had to modify because i had no mushrooms or peppers so i just used more shrimp (salad sized) and i added red pepper flakes and sauted the onions garlic and shrimp in a mixture of olive oil and butter and seasoned this w/ seasoned salt peper and garlic power. this was a great recipe and only took me about 5 minutes to prepare and took 5 to cook. great high protein low carb meal! great for breakfast lunch and dinner too. i think i might experiement w/ it some more and will try shrimp and crab or even crawfish or lobster next time. i can't wait!

Delicious as written! I think I'll add more shrimp next time though and I'll keep the veggies warm while I'm cooking the eggs instead of removing them from heat completely. Read More

Whoah!! Was this ever great!! However this cook had too much wine while putting it together and used cumin instead of curry. Fantastic! Second time I made it I used curry but have decided next time I'll use both - probably 1/2 t. cumin. Excellent! Read More
