These omelets make a substantial breakfast or a hearty lunch. If hungry guests are standing by, serve each omelet as soon as it is done; if your crowd is more patient, wait until all are cooked to begin eating. Serve with a side of toast and potatoes O' Brien.

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 yellow onion, thinly sliced
1/2 green bell pepper, seeded, deribbed and cut lengthwise into narrow strips
1 clove garlic, minced
2 cups tomato sauce
For the Omelets:
12 eggs
Pinch of salt
Pinch of freshly ground pepper
6 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 1/4 cups shredded Cheddar cheese

Spanish Omelet Recipe at
In a large nonstick frying pan over medium heat, warm the olive oil. Add the onion and sauté, stirring occasionally, until just beginning to soften, 3-4 minutes. Add the green pepper and continue to sauté, stirring occasionally, until the green pepper begins to soften, 3-4 minutes. Add the garlic and sauté for 1 minute longer. Then add the tomato sauce and simmer, stirring occasionally, until slightly reduced, about 3 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper, cover and keep warm.

In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, salt and pepper until well blended. In an 8-inch nonstick frying pan or omelet pan over medium heat, melt 1 tablespoon of the butter. When the foam subsides, add one-sixth of the beaten eggs and immediately stir the center with the flat side of a fork. Then, with the tines of the fork, lift the edges of the omelet and tilt the pan so that any uncooked egg runs underneath the cooked portion. Vigorously slide the pan back and forth over the burner until the omelet moves freely.

When the omelet is lightly cooked but still creamy in the center, mound one-sixth of the cheese over half of the omelet. Using a spatula, lift and fold the uncovered half over the filling. Slide the omelet onto a warmed individual plate and spoon some of the sauce over the top. Cover lightly with aluminum foil and keep warm while you cook the remaining omelets.

Serve the omelets piping hot.
