Sounds like a good treat for every once in awhile... I bet it was delicious!

Thanks! Yes, I tracked more than 1 tsp. I also have been in a restaurant kitchen. Besides the cost, I probably won't be ordering that again soon. My breakfast, with the tip was $15.....to much to do that very often. emoticon

Agreed w/ Russell. Yes, tsp is plenty to cook an omelette. But, at a restaurant, they likely use WAY more than that. I've seen some that have squirt bottles of melted butter that they just squirt all over the griddle. I would over estimate and use 2tbsp.

I agree with Becky that 1 Tbsp would be enough, but in my experience, it is probably more like 2-3. When I was a cook, we just kept butter in a pan on the grill, and ladled it out.

If you look up omelettes at national chain stores, this will be reflected in the extraordinary calorie totals. Look up a Bob Evans breakfast, and see if your input is close.

I would think 1 teaspoon would be enough to cook 1 omelette.

I went to a nice restaurant this morning and ordered an omelette. You know they cooked it with butter or oil.......do you think two tablespoons would be a good guess as far as tracking it? emoticon
