So I realize saying the BEST I've EVER had is a pretty bold statement. But when it comes to the omelet I had last Sunday, I stand by it 100%. And the world must know the awesomeness of the chili-cheese omelet!
If you think I am talking about chili, as in football Sunday chili, a crisp Fall day chili, then you are absolutely right! Ok, I admit it sounds a little strange to put chili in an omelet...but right now I'm just upset that I didn't think of it a long time ago! I didn't even know what I was missing all of these years!
The omelet was actually filled with the chili and then topped off with chili, cheese, sour cream and scallions. And yes, that is absolutely fried corn bread on the side and with home fries. YUM. I was seriously grinning ear to ear this entire meal. That's when you know it's good!
So where did I find this little piece of heaven, you ask?
The answer is The Shack in East Lyme, CT.
The Shack Restaurant is a diner with three locations in Eastern Connecticut: Waterford, East Lyme and Groton. The chili-cheese omelet is actually not on the regular breakfast menu. It was on the specials menu for the day. I just hope that it is a frequent special, because I have a feeling I am going to be craving this meal A LOT.
I'm already dreaming of what I am going to do with my first leftover batch of chili this Fall! (I think you can guess what I'll be having for breakfast that day!)
So I realize that everyone isn't going to feel the same way that I do about the chili omelet. What is YOUR favorite kind of omelet? Spinach and tomato omelet? Feta cheese and bacon? The combinations are endless! Please share in the comments below!
