Commonly Asked Questions

Can I use other vegetables?

Yes! You can experiment with the vegetable you want to include in your omelet. We recommend using tomatoes and onions for that extra flavor. If you want a lighter flavor, you may use salad greens — specifically lettuce — to be mixed with the egg. 

Can I make this omelette ahead?

Unfortunately, no. This dish is best served hot. After cooking your 3-minute omelette in the microwave, we strongly advise that you eat it immediately. The omelette will no longer be moist when it gets cold.
