"It seems that I often have crabmeat left over after making crab cakes or other crab dishes. This is a great way to use it up the following morning. This recipe can be halved."

directions

  • Mix the flaked crabmeat with the cheese and season with salt and pepper.
  • Lightly beat the eggs in a bowl with the water and salt and pepper.
  • Melt the butter in a small skillet and when the froth subsides, pour in the eggs.
  • Place the crab and cheese on top of the eggs just when the eggs are beginning to set.
  • Pour on the cream while the eggs are still liquid and transfer under a hot broiler for a few minutes until the top is golden brown.
  • Do not fold, but slide on to a hot plate and serve immediately.

    I had some leftover crab and the waitress suggested a crab omelette. I googled it and this was the first recipe that came up! Wow, I made it exactly as described and I’m blown away. It’s delicious! I served it with sliced tomatoes. Definitely making this again! YUM!!!

    I think that was excellent the first time I made it. Second time around I added Old Bay Seasoning to the crab and cheese mix to give it a kick and added chopped green onions for color and a little crunch. Next time I'll remember to take a photo!

    EXCELLENT!!!! My hubby surprised me with this omelet and it's a home run! We had leftover crab from a birthday celebration and had all of the ingredients, but I would make a special trip to the store if I didn't have them. It's just that good! Right balance of crab, eggs and cheese and followed the recipe to a T. Thank you, honey!
