This omelet is the breakfast star of the Waffle House chain of restaurants. It is popular served alongside buttery grits or hash browns and white toast. What a delicious breakfast, brunch or breakfast for dinner option.


3 eggs
2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 slices cheddar cheese


Crack 3 eggs and place in a blender, a hand held mixer or a milk shake machine.

Beat eggs on high speed until eggs are pale, frothy, and have tripled in volume, about 2 minutes.
Swirl 2 Tablespoons of oil in an 8-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat, coating pan sides as well. Pour in eggs and let sit until they begin to set on the bottom of the skillet, about 20 seconds.

Season with about 1/2 tsp. kosher salt and vigorously shake the skillet back and forth to distribute the eggs, gently lifting them off the edge of the skillet; continue shaking pan over medium heat for about 1 -2 minutes. Once the sides begin to cook, stop shaking. Put omelet on a low heat about 30 seconds until set. Add desired filling, such as cheddar cheese, and fold omelet in half. Gently flip. Serve when hot.

 Big mac pizza 2

Once you serve this, it will become a staple at you table. It is totally addictive! We use rectangular prepared pizza crust from Trader Joe's and flatbread such as Stonefire Artisan brand. Round crusts are fine as well. Or, if you have time, make your own crust. 


2 rectangular or round pizza crusts or flat breads
1 cup Thousand Island dressing (recipe below)
1 lb. cooked ground beef
2 cups arugula (optional) washed and well dried
1-cup parve kosher cheddar cheese shreds like Daiya, or So Delicious
1 -2 finely chopped onions, caramelized

Thousand Island Dressing*
2 cups mayonnaise
2 teaspoons mustard (Dijon or yellow)
1/3-cup sweet pickle relish
1/3-cup ketchup
½ teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon white vinegar


Sauté onions until golden- about 20 minutes. Remove and set aside.
Add ground beef to same pan; stir over medium heat until fully cooked
When ground beef is ready, stir in caramelized onions. Let cook about 2 minutes more.

Spread Thousand Island dressing liberally on crust
Add and spread arugula if using
Add ground beef/onion mixture and place evenly over dressing and arugula layer
Top with parve cheese shreds
Bake at 400 for about 15-20 minutes, or until hot, crust is golden and cheese is "melty"..


*This dressing recipe makes more than you’ll need, but the extra is delicious to serve on the side, or as a green salad dressing. Store leftover dressing in refrigerator. 
Optional additions to layer just under cheese: halved cherry tomatoes; kosher beef “bacon” like Jacks Gourmet Facon
