~ For the Love of Omelettes -- An Omelette Oration ~

IMG_3450I am a lover of omelettes.  I've always enjoyed a savory breakfast more than a sweet breakfast, and, the omelette easily turns two or three eggs into a satisfying meal.  That said, I am a much bigger fan of the fluffy American-style omelette vs the skinny French omelette,  Don't get me wrong, I do like them both, and, while the French omelette is indeed iconic, in my opinion, miracle of miracles, we Americans actually improved upon it.  By allowing our version to get a little golden on the outside, which gives it a bit of extra flavor and texture, and, by generously filling it with a heavenly host of filling combos, egg lovers like me have turned the omelette into the hot pocket of beloved egg dishes.  While I make quite a few omelettes during the course of any year, classic recipes with a clear history, popular breakfast-joint diner-type favorites, and, recipes with eggs-traordinary stories are the ones I enjoy sharing, and the following six are egg-cellent:
