I like omelettes. I've been making them a bit lately, and have been impressively surprised how much I feel like Swiss is a top-notch cheese for an omelette with sauteed mushrooms.

While I don't think you can really go wrong with plain old American, and while some times I'll go with pepperjack, I think Swiss is the best for my omelette.

I like both cheddar and Swiss. I prefer grated to sliced.

Also, I make scrambled eggs with Penzey's Parisien Bonnes Herbes, a vegetable -- usually spinach or asparagus, though mushrooms would be great, too -- and freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano. http://www.penzeys.com/cgi-bin/penze...ml?id=4tranL8v

That sounds good.


I think with omelettes sometimes less is more. I used to really overdo it, like using bell pepper, onion, ham, cheese, and realized it was just too busy. Sometimes just a simple perfectly cooked omelette with a slice of American is perfection.


That said, occasionally I will make a ham, cheese, onion omelette and quite enjoy it.

Cheddar is my go-to cheese for eggs. I actually like swiss more, but I eat cheddar with other things besides eggs so I always have a chunk in the house. I have to be in the mood for swiss, to buy it.

I like provolone when it's melted.

I don't make omelettes, but I used to have a grated carrot, half of a grated yellow squash, and a cup of baby spinach stir fried with one egg and two egg whites for breakfast every day, topped with a little bit of cheese, and it was delicious. Only stopped because my cholesterol went up.

Swiss definitely is a good cheese to cut through the richness of an omelette or egg dish. I usually don't keep it on hand but the next time I shop, it will be eyed.

I typically have Cheddar and PepperJack on hand so if I decide on cheese for egg dishes on the spur of the moment, I usually will choose Cheddar.

I like aged cheddar for omelettes. The older the better.
I had one with Kefalograviera not too long ago, which is a sharp sheep's milk cheese from Greece.
OMG, was it ever goood!

Whatever cheese I grab out of the fridge is what I use. This morning it was onions, leeks, tomato and shredded cheddar cheese in scrambled eggs.
