Directions

  1. Prepare the filling by stirring Dijon mustard into chicken broth in a saucepan until dissolved. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat, then add 1/4 cup cream and 2 tablespoons butter. Reduce heat to medium, and simmer until reduced by half, then stir in crab and shrimp; keep warm over low heat.
  2. Prepare the sauce by warming 1/4 cup cream, and 1 teaspoon mustard over medium heat. Once hot, whisk in the shredded cheese, then season to taste with nutmeg, salt, and pepper. Keep warm over low heat.
  3. Whisk eggs, 1/4 cup cream, salt, and pepper together until smooth. Heat an 8-inch non-stick skillet over medium heat, and lightly oil with cooking spray. Pour 1/4 cup of the egg mixture into hot pan, and swirl to make a thin, even layer of egg. Cook until firmed, then flip and cook for a few seconds more to firm the other side.
  4. To prepare omelets, spoon some of the seafood filling into the lower half of each omelet. Roll up into a cylinder. Serve 2 per person bathed with Cheddar sauce.

A lot of work for what is really just scrambled eggs with shrimp in cheese sauce. And the scrambled eggs are a lot easier and faster than the rolled omelets which get cold or dried out while assembling them.

Wow - this was awesome! I did not make the cheese sauce (too much work so early in the morning) or use shrimp - but followed the recipe - adding only some fresh chive to the eggs - and it was rich and lovely. I had some crab that my husband brought home from Alaska and we were saving for a special occasion. It is always a risk making something for the first time when using expensive ingredients. All I can say that the crab was not wasted on this dish - it was perfect for showing off the decadent nature of the seafood. It was lavish and heavenly. Many thanks for a great recipe!!!!!!!!!
