Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What kind of crab should I use for crab omelette?

I love to use Dungeness crab for this omelette, but if you’ve got another type of crab on hand, use that instead!
This recipe doesn’t walk you through steaming and cracking the crab.

Can I use canned crab?

You sure can! Try to use cans that label the specific type of crab, or opt for cans labeled lump crab meat.

What ingredients go well in an omelette?

Some classic omelet fillings include shredded cheddar or Gruyere cheese, sour cream, diced ham, crisp bacon, sautéed mushrooms, bell peppers or tomatoes, caramelized onions, fresh herbs or even leftovers from last night’s dinner.

Do I need to add milk to crab omelette?

Many people add either milk or cream to their crab omelette in order to bulk them out and have a more substantial dish without the need to add an extra egg. While this does work, it’s crucial not to go overboard or you’ll end up with a mixture that’s too loose.
