What’s For Dinner?
Chili Cheese Omelet
(First star is lowest, fourth star is highest)
Inspired by the Camellia Grill, a popular diner in New Orleans, this recipe, submitted by Susan Leafman of Marietta, has been a family favorite for years. She calls it "quick, tasty and filling, " and food stylist Mary Ann Clayton agrees. “Talk about quick!" Clayton reported. "I had this on the plate in less than 10 minutes, including getting out the ingredients. You can easily multi-task this one."
-- Susan Puckett
For a meatless option, use vegetarian chili.
Hands on time: Total time: 30 minutes Serves: 2
1 (16-ounce) can chili with beans (or 1 to 2 cups leftover prepared chili)
2 ounces sliced cheddar cheese
Let cook for about 30 seconds, then flip over and cook on other side for another 30 seconds or until eggs are set. While omelet is cooking, heat chili. Cut omelet in half, place each half on a plate and spoon chili on top.
She adds: "The funny thing about this recipe is that it's about the least complicated thing I make but is appreciated by my family as much as more 'gourmet' endeavors."
