Why don't ants get sick? Because they have little anty-bodies!

Welcome to the Bug Zoo Recipe page.

Today, we're diving into a culinary creation that's bound to get your antennae twitching with excitement – the Ultimate Orkin Omelette. This savory dish is a quirky twist on a breakfast classic, featuring ingredients that mimic the appearance of our favorite backyard critters. Rest assured, no real bugs were harmed in the making of this recipe. Let's embark on this gastronomic adventure that's as delightful to make as it is to eat.


  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 tbsp diced red bell pepper
  • 2 tbsp diced green bell pepper
  • 2 tbsp diced onion
  • 1/4 cup sliced black olives (for the bugs)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil or butter
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh chives for garnish (optional)


  1. Crack the eggs into a mixing bowl, add milk, and beat them together until the mixture is smooth. Season with salt and pepper according to your taste.
  2. Heat the olive oil or butter in a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add the diced red and green bell pepper and onion to the skillet, sautéing until they're soft and fragrant, about 3-4 minutes.
  3. Pour the beaten egg mixture over the sautéed vegetables, tilting the pan to spread them evenly. Cook for 1-2 minutes until the edges of the omelette start to set.
  4. Sprinkle shredded cheddar cheese evenly over one half of the omelette. Then, arrange the sliced black olives on the same side to mimic the appearance of bugs scattered across the surface.
  5. Carefully fold the other half of the omelette over the cheese and bug filled side. Continue to cook for another 2-3 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the omelette is cooked through but still tender.
  6. Using a spatula, gently slide the omelette onto a plate. Garnish with fresh chives for an extra touch of freshness and color, if desired.

This Ultimate Orkin Omelette is more than just a meal; it's a love letter to the fascinating world of insects. With each bite, you get a burst of flavor from the veggies and cheese, coupled with the playful visual of black olive bugs peeking out. It's a fun, nutritious way to start the day, and an excellent conversation starter about the beauty and importance of bugs in our ecosystem.
