Big Steak Omelette

An IHOP copycat recipe for Big Steak Omelette: a giant omelette stuffed to the brim with steak, bell peppers, onions, cheese, hash browns and mushrooms!

How do you spell omelette anyway? I’ve seen it that way and also as omelet. It confuses the heck out of me and makes me wonder if I’ve been doing it wrong this whole time.

Omelette or omelet, this eggylicious creation is not mine, much as I’d like to take credit for it. No, this one is from IHOP. It came to my attention when Mr. Cooking Jar ordered it: a gigantic omelette stuffed silly with steak, mushrooms and whole lot of other things came to our table and he proceeded to inhale it in less than 5 minutes.

My first thought was ‘Wow, that’s a LOT of food’. And then I saw how quickly it disappeared. So let’s just say this recipe is for one to two servings. Just in case you have a hungry human beast to feed as well or are a hungry human beast.

Incase you missed my descriptors, this thing is humongous. It’s stuffed till kingdom come with steak, mushrooms, green bell peppers, tomatoes, hash browns and cheese. And then it is topped with more of those fillings. As if what’s inside it isn’t enough. It’s called Big Steak Omelette for a reason.

It’s for the meat eaters. The carnivores of the world. And it pretty much falls under the category of man food. Protein and more protein inside some protein and topped with MORE protein. The veggies are just there as a side show.

I’ll put this under breakfast but it’s filling enough to be dinner as well. Seems I’m on an egg roll with breakfast recipes. First with Idaho Sunrise, then with hash brown egg nests and finally this. I foresee more eggs in the future.

Good times. Back to the recipe, there’s a lot of sauteing for stuff like the mushrooms and hash browns. The steak is grilled then cut into medium thick slices. Go big or go home.

Make the omelette, top it with stuffing and cook until the cheese has melted. IHOP tends to roll their omelette into a burrito shape but mine was too overstuffed to do that. Oops! Serve with a side of salsa, if you want. That’s about it. Simple ingredients but big results.

Let’s get started.

    Yum! This is my lunch and I will have it all alone. I never had this dish at IHOP but I’ll look for it next time I’m there. Your clicks always make my hungry, I’m not sure if it’s your clicks or I’m just an all the time hungry human 🙁

      That’ll make the two of us! I tend to eat every 3-4 hours! 😉 A quarter of this was enough to fill me up though.

      So great to see some womenfolk loving it too! It really seems to be popular with the men, not so much the women. It’s a pity cause it tasted really good.

      It’s a pretty versatile recipe! As for the spelling, I keep bouncing around between the two, but I think I prefer omelette. IHOP spelled it that way so I think I’m safe!
