We had some leftover snow crab legs (I was just as surprised as you are) and was wondering what to do with it.  Making an omelet is always a great way to get rid of leftovers.  Along those lines, if you can think of something else to throw in to it (including just about any cheese, vegetable, or herb), it will probably work.  I especially love this recipe because it's open faced - no folding needed!

6 ozs crabmeat
2 tbsps parmesan cheese (shredded)
black pepper (freshly ground)
6 eggs
2 tbsps water
1 oz butter
2 tbsps heavy whipping cream

Mix the flaked crabmeat with the cheese and season with salt and pepper.  ( I also added some Old Bay seasonings).

Lightly beat the eggs in a bowl with the water and salt and pepper.

Melt the butter in a small skillet and when the froth subsides, pour in the eggs.

Place the crab and cheese on top of the eggs just when the eggs are beginning to set.

Pour on the cream while the eggs are still liquid and transfer under a hot broiler for a few minutes until the top is golden brown.

Do not fold, but slide on to a hot plate and serve immediately.
