1. Classic French Omelet (Pete And Gerry’s)
And not surprisingly, I would like to kick this omelet recipes roundup off with a classic…
A classic French omelet of course! Pete and Gerry’s Organic Eggs is a farm that is run by the same family for over three generations. They go for the highest quality organic and free range eggs. I found this French omelet recipe on their website Pete and Gerry’s Organic Eggs.
Here is what they say: “This simple French omelet is a classic for a reason. In keeping with tradition, it has a firm but tender and unbrowned outside that holds the soft, buttery egg inside. It takes some technique to get that texture right, but it is so worth it.”
Thank you so much!
2. Mushroom And Tomato Omelet (Australian Eggs)
This next omelet recipe might look like a simple one…
But it is packed with flavor! I found this delicious mushroom and tomato omelet over at Australian Eggs, a non profit company that provides marketing and research and development services for Australian egg farmers.
I like the ingredients that you need for this omelet recipe: eggs, button mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, flat leaf parsley, provolone cheese and pepper and salt. Nothing over the top but you and I both know that the combination of these ingredients will be spot on. No doubt in my mind.

That is how I came up with the idea for this corned beef and dubliner cheese omelet. Dubliner cheese is a cross between a cheddar and a romano cheese. The perfect St. Patrick’s Day breakfast!”

10. Denver Breakfast Omelet (The Spruce Eats)
Have you ever heard of the Denver omelet?
Laurel Randolph explains what it is: “The Denver omelet is a classic that you can order at a diner, especially with a side of hash browns or toast. Piled high with ham, onion, bell pepper and cheese the Denver omelet is a meal in and of itself. You don’t always need to go to a diner to enjoy it, it is also an delicious breakfast omelet that you can easily make at home!”
I like the sound of that! You can find this Denver omelet recipes over at the very popular recipes website called The Spruce Eats by the way.
Thank you so much for this breakfast recipe Laurel!
11. Chanterelle Omelet and Sauteed Chanterelles with Fresh Herbs (Angie’s Recipes)
I like a good classic mushroom omelet…
But I love this chanterelle mushroom omelet even more! Although you can find chanterelle mushrooms practically all year round, I like to wait until they are at their very best. Here in Belgium that means as of June until early fall.
Angie says: “These trumpet shaped meaty mushrooms also go by the name of golden chanterelle and egg mushrooms. They are nutty in flavor with a slight aroma of apricots and peaches some say. Chanterelle mushrooms contain high levels of vitamin D2 and significant amounts of protein and iron. Once you buy them, keep them dry and in the fridge. Use them in your cooking within 7 days.”
Thank you so much Angie!
12. Easy Blue Cheese And Spinach Omelet Recipes
Allow me to sneak in one of my personal omelet recipes!
I made quite a few omelet recipes on my website here but the most popular one is this blue cheese and spinach omelet.
Not sure why, is it because of the small amount of ingredients needed? Or because people can immediately imagine what they will have on their plate when they hear ‘blue cheese and spinach omelet’?
Whatever it is, it surely is not because of the picture that I made years ago. My food photography has definitely gotten better after 10 years of food blogging. Which reminds me that I should make this blue cheese and spinach omelet recipe again and snap an updated picture.
Enjoy this one!
13. Peanut Butter Omelet with Candied Bacon (Macheesmo)
I saw that face that you just made!
Peanut butter omelet? With candied bacon? I have to admit that it had me stopping dead in my tracks when I first read it. But then as I scrolled through the recipe, I thought that this omelet might really work. Nick Evans is the food writer behind Macheesmo.
And he also says: “This omelet might seem kind of strange but wait a minute. I actually started thinking about this peanut butter omelet a couple of weeks ago because right now my 2 year old is in a phase where he mainly will eat eggs or peanut butter for breakfast. So I thought that I should try to put them together.”
14. Pad Thai Omelet (Closed Cooking)
Let’s add another Asian flavored omelet to this omelet recipes roundup!
You are most definitely familiar with a Thai pad Thai noodle stir fry. And why not turn it into a lovely breakfast pad thai omelet this time! Credits go to Kevin who runs a recipes website by the name of Closet Cooking.
And he says: “Just imagine all of the flavors of a classic pad thai in a tasty omelet. Now you finally have an excuse to eat pad thai for breakfast! The combination of those lovely Asian flavors and textures is quite amazing. I especially love the powerful blend of salty, sour, sweet and spicy flavors in this pad thai omelet.”
Thank you so much Kevin!
15. Asparagus Omelet with Cheese (Jernej Kitchen)
Who doesn’t love green asparagus?
And they say: “This is an amazing spring breakfast or brunch omelet. Asparagus is one of the first things to come out in spring in our vegetable garden. As if they announce a bright new season. Fresh asparagus from our garden with a couple of eggs for breakfast? It takes only a handful of minutes to make this omelet and the result is a real treat. It keeps you full for hours and it is pretty healthy too.”
Thanks Maja and Jernej!
16. Lobster And Tarragon Omelet (Edible Boston)
I am still recovering from that crab and miso omelet.
He says: “Tarragon and lobster is a classic combo. I love to serve it in a creamy and gooey French style omelet. This is a decadent breakfast or brunch. Making a good French style omelet is not easy. Make sure to use a good non stick pan for it. If you use a cast iron pan to make this omelet, it will be more difficult. Be sure it is well seasoned and use plenty of butter.”
17. Japanese Omurice (Pickled Plum)
An omelet stuffed with a flavorful fried rice mixture…
That is what this classic omurice is all about! Fellow food blogger and friend Caroline over at Pickled Plum knows how to cook a proper omurice omelet. Look how beautiful and rich this stuffed omelet is!
And she says: “My omurice recipe is Japanese comfort food at its best! Flavored fried rice packed with vegetables and ketchup, served inside a fluffy omelet. It is so delicious! All it takes is just 20 minutes, from start to finish. Oh and making this Western influenced Japanese comfort food is also a great way to use up some of the leftovers in your fridge!”
Thank you so much Caroline for another classic omelet recipes!
18. Broccoli & Chicken Omelet Recipes (Cook Recipes And More)
So next up in our omelet recipes roundup…
This broccoli and chicken omelet! And it sounds like a pretty straightforward recipe, with a couple of classic ingredients such as broccoli florets and chicken. I found it over at a website by the name of Cook Recipes And More.
This omelet uses fresh ingredients but I can imagine that you can also use leftover things like cooked cold vegetables and cooked chicken. A little like in the omurice recipe above, another great omelet recipes to use leftover.
Thank you so much for this delicious omelet recipe idea!
19. Mediterranean Vegetable And Egg White Omelet
Gooey and creamy golden omelets, yes!
But how do you feel about egg white omelets? It happens that I need a bunch of egg yolks in my kitchen, especially when I bake biscuits or make choux pastry for instance. But what to do with the egg whites that I don’t use?
Throw them out? Not in my kitchen!
Some people might make or order egg white omelets because they think that it is somewhat healthier. Not me though, that is not why I make it. But it sure makes a lovely lunch!
I like to top my egg white omelet with a crunchy mixture of vegetables. And a generous side of freshly grilled garlic bread right next to it.
20. Keto Chorizo Omelet (What Great Grandma Eats)
And we have come to our last omelet recipes here!
And here is what Jean says about her recipe: “One of my favorite breakfasts is this keto chorizo omelet. Not only because it is really easy and fast to prepare. Also because you just can’t beat the flavor combo of the spicy chorizo and the creamy eggs with crunchy bits of bell pepper!”
Thank you so much Jean!
