Omelets with Spanish Sauce
A warm, Spanish-style sauce of sautéed bell pepper, onion, mushooms, tomatoes and cooked ham is served over fluffy omelets.
7 tablespoons butter - divided use
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 onion, chopped
6 tomatoes, peeled, seeded and chopped*
1 cup chopped celery
1 cup chopped mushroom
1 cup chopped cooked ham
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
12 large eggs, beaten
- Sauté chopped green bell pepper and chopped onion in 3 tablespoons butter. Add peeled, chopped tomatoes, chopped celery, chopped mushrooms, chopped ham, salt, and pepper; simmer for 10 minutes.
- Meanwhile, melt 4 tablespoons butter in an omelet pan, 1 tablespoon at a time, and add beaten eggs, 3 at a time. Cook over medium heat until set, shaking the pan and lifting the edge. Fold each omelet over, place on a serving plate, and spoon one-fourth of the vegetable sauce on top.
