A little bit harder omelet to make with a lot more taste. This omelets great flavors comes from the Double Gloucester with onions and chives. The shrimp just push it over the edge making it one of the best omelets I have ever come up with! This is in fact somewhere around the 65Th-70Th omelet I have made since we started dating. it has been around 84-86 Sundays but with traveling and taking separate trips I know I have not made as many omelets as Sundays we have been together. Still 65-70 omelets ain't bad! Still the best omelet I have made since we have been together is the Lasagnalette but I have yet to post it. So this is the best posted omelet in my opinion until I get the Lasagnalette up here. So enjoy it!

10 medium shrimp (chopped, tailed and peeled)
3 eggs
1 tbsp heavy cream
2 tbsp whole milk
1 orange vine sweet mini pepper (chopped)
1 red vine sweet mini pepper (chopped)
1 yellow vine sweet mini pepper chopped)
1/4 cup white cheddar (shredded)
1/3 cup Double Gloucester with onions and chives
1/4 tsp sweet basil (I know it is hard to find so you can substitute regular basil)
1/4 tsp essence
Unsalted sweet European butter

In a small mixing bowl beat three eggs using a whisk. Whisk in milk, cream and seasonings until smooth.

In a 10 inch skillet melt 1-2 tsp of butter over medium heat. Add shrimp and peppers to skillet and cook for 3 minutes. Now make sure there is a defined middle down the pan (to make folding omelet easier later on) and add the egg mixture, pouring it evenly around skillet. Cover and cook for 5 minutes. Now add the cheese and cook covered for another 3-4 minutes or until cheese has melted. Using a wooden spatula fold omelet down the center and remove from heat. Let cool for 2-3 minutes before serving warm. Enjoy!
