Directions

  1. In a skillet or frying pan, melt butter over medium heat. Add green pepper and onion; saute until tender. Stir in tomato sauce, sugar, Worcestershire sauce and cayenne pepper. Simmer until sauce has thickened, about 10 minutes.
  2. While sauce is cooking, beat together eggs and milk. Heat a lightly oiled 6 inch skillet over medium heat. Cook four small omelets, one at time, in the skillet. Season each with salt and pepper and keep them warm while the others are cooked. Serve warm with sauce spooned over each omelet.

NO SPANIARD WOULD USE BUTTER TO COOK AN OMELET! MY SUGGESTION IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO TRY THE TRADITIONAL AND YUMMY SPANISH OMELET IS TO TRY THE RECIPE SUBMITTED BY PATTY:SPANISH POTATO OMELET(ITS GOT THE RIGHT INGREDIENTS )ALSO I WOULD REMOVE THE EXCESS OIL LEFT AFTER COOKING THE POTATO AND ONION. JUST SOME ADVICE FROM SOMEONE THAT LIVES IN SPAIN. I HOPE YOU TRY IT AND ENJOY IT. IT´S REALLY GOOD!

A fast and easy weekend breakfast! I used a small saucepan for the sauce and omitted the green pepper.

I love Spanish Omelets, but never knew how to make them. This was very tasty. I do have a few suggestion. Definitly use garlic and try a can of diced tomatoes instead of reg sauce, it makes it more chunky. I think the sauce needs more time to simmer to make the flavors blend. Add some shredded cheeses on top and Delicious!!! Thanks for the recipe...I will definitly make again.

A nice, sweet tomato flavor. We used a clove of minced garlic, more peppers and onion, mozzarella, jack, and cheddar, and less tomato sauce. We did it scrambled egg style instead of like an omelette and it turned out great.

I know everyone has their own twist to their omelets. This one is how done just like Sara likes it so if you don't like it, instead of giving it no stars just advise the reader to look elsewhere.As pointed out, it is not the 'traditional' recipe, just one that uses butter. I prepared it as described, obviously with my own changes...but it was nice.I just wanted the basic know-how

This is a great and simple meal to put together. It is exactly what I've been searching for since I ate Spanish Omelets in California 20 years ago. Many of us think of "Spanish" meaning Southwestern or Mexican - not literally from Spain, so there is nothing wrong with using butter. And I prefer my omelets without potatoes! Thanks for a great recipe, Rebecca!

Very good. I never thought of putting a sauce over omelets! I added some garlic to the sauce as suggested, and I think it could be really played around with - bacon, sausage, mushrooms etc etc. I'll be making this again. Thanks, Rebecca!
