Directions

  1. Melt butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in mushrooms, and cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer mushrooms to plate. Remove skillet from heat.
  2. In a small bowl, beat egg yolks and milk to blend. In a separate bowl, beat egg whites with a dry beater until soft peaks form. Fold yolk mixture into whites.
  3. Return skillet to medium-high heat. When butter sizzles, pour egg mixture into skillet. Sprinkle mushrooms and crab meat evenly over the top. Cook until omelet begins to set, about 3 minutes. Sprinkle with Swiss cheese. Using a large spatula, fold omelet over, forming semicircle. Cover skillet; cook until omelet puffs and is cooked through, about 3 minutes. Slide omelet onto large plate.
  4. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

I found that the yolk separated from the whites during cooking, so that they started to cook at the bottom of the pan with the whites remaining raw at the top. Oh well, I turned often so it wasn't omelet looking, more like chunky scrambled eggs. But the flavor was delicious; substituted shrimp for the crab and added avocado.

I added green onions and casa dressing on top. The end result was good.

Really nice and simple recipe, although I found I had to half the cheese and added more crab meat and mushrooms. I also added some barbecue seasoning and and all purpose seasoning as I felt it was missing something...I was right!! Would definitely make it again.
