I’ve made a lot of omelets (more appropriately ‘frittatas,’ but omelets herein)
Never the same.
Today’s was different because today’s casual adds of ingredients conspired to make the omelet a classic.
From the first bite I knew I had it right.
I must jot it down.
It’s today’s post.
An omelet recipe among tens of thousands of them, but ours, simple, light, tasty, and satisfying.
Like our other recipes.
Note that the posted recipe assumes we are imaginative.
It does not spend time or space saying that , while this is the perfect light meal, serving it with a crusty Italian loaf adds a layer.
As it does not say that it might be to our taste to cover the omelet with ham and cheese.
The recipe assumes a certain awareness of the possibilities of tweaking it to suit the moment.
Assumes we can figure that out.

Good morning, my friends.
This is my eighty-ninth consecutive daily posting.
It’s 5.24 and the heat wave is over: we’re 85* with rain.
On the screen: High Society is a 1956 American musical comedy film directed by Charles Walters and starring Bing Crosby, Grace Kelly, and Frank Sinatra. The film was produced by Sol C. Siegel for Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, and shot in VistaVision and Technicolor, with music and lyrics by Cole Porter.
The film is a remake of the 1940 movie The Philadelphia Story starring Cary Grant, Katharine Hepburn, and James Stewart, which was based on the play The Philadelphia Story by Philip Barry (which had starred Hepburn on Broadway). High Society's screenplay was written by John Patrick and involves a successful popular jazz musician (Bing Crosby) who tries to win back the affections of his ex-wife (Grace Kelly), who is preparing to marry another man. The cast also features Celeste Holm, John Lund and Louis Calhern, in his final film, with a musical contribution by Louis Armstrong.
High Society was the last film appearance of Grace Kelly, before she became Princess consort of Monaco.

I’m at my desk.
Dinner is a simple broiled/seared veal chop.
A Perfect omelet
Heat 2TB of olive oil in an 8” non-stick fry pan
Soften 2oz small diced bell pepper and
2oz small diced onion and
Chili pepper to taste
A touch of salt
In a bowl beat:
Four extra-large eggs
Plus the whites from 2 additional eggs
¾ cup of chopped fresh parsley/basil
¼ cup Romano cheese
¼ cup heavy cream
salt and pepper to taste
Be sure a rack is on the bottom of the oven
Turn on the broiler
When the aromatics are softened
Pour the egg mix into the pan and cook for four minutes to create a crust under the egg mix.
Move the fry pan into the oven on that bottom rack.
Check doneness after 3 minutes by using a fork to move the top crust of the eggs to make sure there is no runny batter left.
There should be no runny batter.
Take out the pan and slide the omelet onto a plate.
