What does ‘Omlette du Fromage’ mean?

Famous American Actor, Steve Martin used to tell this as a joke, back in the ‘70s. It went something like this, “Omelette du Fromage! It’s like the French have a different word for EVERYTHING!”

Although, now it’s a joke from Dexter’s laboratory, in one of the episode Dexter try to seduce a girl by speaking (bad) French so he says things like “Omelette du Fromage” which means nothing in French. “Omelette du Fromage” however means cheese omelette.

Omelette du Fromage or Omelette au Fromage?
