Well, St. Paddy's day was upon us and I was browsing recipes in Just a Pinch and stumbled upon this one that needed adopted. So, I added more goodies to fit my taste.

Wow, talk about a "decadent omelet" this is it! Every bite is bursting with Reuben flavor and it is such a satisfying omelet too. I love the Shamrock toast to dip in the Swiss cheese sauce. Yumm

Stove Top

Ingredients

2 oz
corned beef, (from deli) torn
1/2 c
sauerkraut
3 large
eggs
2 Tbsp
milk
1 Tbsp
unsalted butter
1 bottle
thousand island dressing or miracle whip's "secret burger sauce"
salt & pepper

CHEESE SAUCE AND SHAMROCK TOAST

1 - 2 Tbsp
butter
1/4 c
cream or half and half, (approx. give or take a little)
1 Tbsp
flour
1/8 - 1/4 tsp
dry mustard
1/2 c
swiss cheese, shredded (try & get a good strong swiss)
dark rye or irish soda bread
shamrock cookie cutter

GARNISH

2 stalk(s)
green onion, chopped

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Grill up your sliced corned beef and sauerkraut.
2
If making this for a celebration for St. Paddy's day, go ahead and cut out your Shamrock bread to make toast.
3
Beat your eggs and milk in a bowl with a little salt & pepper. Add to a heated pan w/hot oil and pour in. Now, swirl around a litte so that your omelet cooks evenly. Lift up the edges of egg mixture with spatula to allow uncooked egg to run under. Once it is almost cooked through add your hot corned beef, kraut on top and then squirt on your Thousand Island dressing.
4
Fold over omelet in pan....this is a heavy omelet so use 2 spatulas so that it doesn't tear like mine did. No worries though if it does as you are going to add a swiss cheese sauce on top. Yumm
5
Meanwhile, heat your butter on medium/low heat in a small pan and then add your flour; stir till combined. Then add your 1/4 cup of half and half and continue to stir. Add, your seasonings and shredded Swiss cheese. Whisk till completely melted and is a nice "pour" consistency. If it is too thick add more half & half.

Since I live in a town with a few "Irish" folks, I was unable to find any Thousand Island dressing and found an amazing product called "Secret Burger Sauce". On the back of the bottle it reads: "Why go out to a burger joint when you enjoy this bold twist on thousand island flavor at home?." ---This worked perfectly!
