Here’s are great dinner omelet options:

*

- Combine broccoli, Brie cheese and toasted almonds.

- In a south-of-the-border mood? Try corn, salsa, chorizo and jalapeño cheese.

-For a sweet omelet, omit pepper and add a dash of sugar to egg mixture. Fill with preserves, finely chopped toasted nuts or berries; dust with powdered sugar.
