I know, I know! I can hear you thinking it from here! “What could possibly be sexy about eggs?” Well, dear ones…I’m about to blow your mind with this simple, sexy and mouth watering five ingredient omelet (six if you count the garnish) that will have your lover, your friends, heck, even your pastor! (gasp)…rolling their eyes back in their head with delight and longing for more!

I’ve even put together your Sexy Eggs playlist with Paula Cole’s “Feelin’Love” at the top of the shuffle and on heavy rotation!
Sexy Eggs start with a simple omelet recipe. The Frugal Gourmet taught me how to make the perfect omelet when I was in college and you can find his tutorial here. That said, I use cream in my eggs for the richness…he uses water. The only prep you will need to execute in order to speed up the “sexy egg” process is roasting one red pepper under a broiler ahead of time and storing in frig until use. I cannot stress enough that a RED (or orange or yellow…not green) must be used and it MUST be roasted. Otherwise, you’ve made yourself a nice western omelet sort of thingy and, although it might be tasty, it will not be sexy.
Even the making of Sexy Eggs is sexy because you use your hands…yes…your hands.
The warm eggs are soft and pillowy (sexy), the butter is buttery (sexy), the roasted red pepper is sweet and surprising (sexy) and the cream cheese is rich and decadent (sexy). And the darn thing is so easy to make (sexy).
