Method to make the Spicy Omelette
The oven temperature should be 400 degrees. Use a medium-sized, well-seasoned cast iron skillet.
Add salt, red chilli powder, and eggs to a big bowl. Blend thoroughly by whisking. Add bread, heavy cream, shrimp, gruyere, shiitake mushrooms, scallions, and red bell peppers to the mixture. Gently fold the ingredients without overworking them. Before placing the mixture into the oven to bake, let the mixture sit for a minimum of 15 minutes, or until the bread becomes soggy.
Bake the bread for 20 to 25 minutes, or until it is set and the edges are golden. Serve hot.
