The three-egg omelette is a fan-favorite in the United States when it comes to breakfast. The omelette is perfect for those who like to be creative with the ingredients and enjoy a full tummy after having breakfast. There's nothing more exciting than to wake up to a perfectly cooked omelette with a cup of coffee perhaps a side of bread.

But as you're standing there in a morning daze, not quite awake yet, it can be hard to be creative with ingredients for an omelette. You may resort to the traditional eggs and bacon with cheese, or you may even add some ham and create a classic ham and cheese omelette. But the reality is that you can add pretty much anything you want to an omelette.

The egg base allows you to get creative with your morning breakfast.

If you are a hungry person and want to stay full for quite some time, the three-egg omelette may be the best choice. If you don't like to eat too much or you plan on adding protein, then go with two eggs.

Cheese

Cheese seems to be an important part of an omelette. This is the first element of the ideal breakfast, as that the cheese adds flavor, texture, and adds that creaminess that is lost when you start adding other ingredients, such as vegetables and meats. The cheese you add is really up to you, but it is wise to let the cheese melt on the egg as you get a creamy texture. You can go for something sharp like cheddar, something basic like mozzarella, or even something with an interesting kick, such as feta or goat's cheese.

Vegetables

Another important element is the vegetable. Vegetables add something unique and interesting to the mix, including a healthy punch. You want to go with vegetables that add both flavor and a crunch. #Common vegetables for this breakfast favorite include tomatoes, green peppers, onions, and mushrooms.

But don't feel limited to these vegetables. You can add whatever you have in your fridge, including broccoli, cauliflower, green onions, and even beets. The trick is to precook the vegetables that are hard, such as the beets, or buy them pre-steamed or cooked.

Protein

The last element of a great omelette is optional, but it does help to add some protein to keep you going throughout the day. You can choose any kind of meat you want, but the common choices are bacon, sausage, and ham.

If you're vegetarian you can also experiment with tofu. If it is more of a brunch omelette, diced chicken could work well with broccoli and some feta cheese, or even other alternatives to bacon from the pork family. With small pieces of pork from a leftover pork chop, you could make a breakfast that sings with mozzarella and some rosemary spices. The final result is truly up to your imagination.
