Omelets in the Summer

I'm thinking of having omelets for dinner tonight. Minimal cooking means a cooler apartment, and it'll allow me to take advantage of some of the summer's bounty. What do you all like to put in your omelets?

      Mixed in with the eggs? Or as a filling?

      1. re: mhoffman

        diced and mixed into eggs - very summery

    2. I love the simplicty of a plain egg omelet, or just a few herbs.

        I see where you're coming from here. There's certainly something to be said for omelet-and-a-glass-of-wine purism. But let's pretend we're extravagant Americans, shall we?

          Ok, ok... I also like sauteed mushrooms, and (separately) cheese.

          I also like to top a plain omelet with a salsa.

        1. Feta cheese omelete with either spinach...roasted red pepper...or'll love any combo if you love feta cheese!

            exactly what I was going to write- a great dinner with feta! if you like fresh tomatoes they are good in it as well. And some good roasted potatoes go nicely.

            1. re: Val

              Yes! Feta and spinach. My favorite.

            2. some fave combos:

              sliced zucchini and mint (frittata-style)
              fage yogurt mixed with chopped arugula
              sliced strawberries
              chopped fresh tomatoes with basil
              roasted veggies
              spaghetti squash with pesto
