UCCFS: Pot Roast vs Omelet Round 1

I think this Ultimate Chilehead Comfort Food Showdown match up pits Dinnertime vs Breakfast. Pot Roast is the all-American suppertime meal with it’s meat, potatoes and other fine veggies soaking in it’s juices for hours as it slow cooks to perfection. Everyone who cooks this home style meal in the comfort of their own kitchen puts their own spin on it, but it is usually closer than most spun off meals. This succulent meal is where Mom gained much of her children’s love and respect. Comfort food, yes indeedy.

The omelet to me is breakfast at its best. No other meal can capture so many elements of what we come to think of as breakfast. While it isn’t a bowl of cereal or some syrupy soaking mess on a plate, it can be so much more. You want pig in your omelet? By all means. Bacon, sausage and/or ham you say? Of course. Veggies? What kind? Cheese melted within or across the top or both? Any or all ways, and you pick the cheese or more than one of you would like. Build it your way, and as big as you want. You want to be creative and think outside of the box and add sauce, other delicacies like seafood or fish, not a problem. Add the ingredients to a philly cheesesteak or a gyro sandwich or how about some Mexican blend? You are the creator, you can create the omelet of your dreams, then come back and do something else the next time.

This is not an easy choice for some. Pot Roast is the favored 6 seed, but as an 11 seed I am sure the omelet will not go out without a fight. Make your vote count folks, and do not take for granted that your choice will advance to the next round.

    Pot roast was a bit different for me. The way you describe it above sounds too similar to beef stew, with the only difference being a pot roast is a large piece of meat as opposed to small chunks. My mom used to oven bake it in a beef broth and then serve it with mashed potatoes.

    Easy Peasy choice for me! Pot Roast all the way! And the leftovers make for a great hot sandwich smothered in gravy
