  Seasoning mix 1 Teaspoon
  Sweet paprika 2 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Onion powder 1 3⁄4 Teaspoon
  Garlic powder 1 3⁄4 Teaspoon
  Salt 1 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Dry mustard 1 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Dried cilantro 1 1⁄2 Teaspoon (Dried Cilantro Leaves)
  Dried basil leaves 1 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Dried thyme leaves 1 Teaspoon
  Black pepper 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  White pepper 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Cayenne 1⁄4 Teaspoon
For creamy mixture
  Evaporated skimmed milk 5 Ounce
  Nonfat cottage cheese 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Nonfat cream cheese 2 Tablespoon
  Chopped onions 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Defatted seafood stock 1 Cup (16 tbs) (1 Cup, In All)
  Sliced fresh mushrooms 2 1⁄2 Cup (40 tbs)
  All purpose flour 2 Tablespoon
  Peeled crawfish tails 8 Ounce (From About 2 Pounds Whole Crawfish)
  Egg substitute 32 Ounce (4 Cartons, 8 Ounce Each)
  Vegetable oil cooking spray 1

Combine seasoning mix ingredients in a small bowl.
Place the creamy mixture ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth and creamy.
Preheat a 10-inch skillet, preferably nonstick, over high heat to 350°, about 4 minutes.
Add the onions and cook just until they start to brown, about 3 to 4 minutes.
Add 1/2 cup stock, scrape the bottom of the skillet, and cook until the liquid evaporates and the onions start to stick.
Add another 1/2 cup stock and the mushrooms, flour, and 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons of the seasoning mix.
Stir until the flour is completely absorbed.
Spread the mixture evenly across the bottom of the skillet and cook, scraping the bottom of the skillet once or twice as crusts form, about 3 to 4 minutes.
Add the remaining 1/2 cup stock and clear the bottom of the skillet.
Add the creamy mixture and crawfish and cook, stirring constantly, just until the mixture comes to a boil.
Be careful at this stage the mixture may begin to overflow the skillet, and you may have to lower the heat.
Turn off the heat and transfer the mixture to another container.
Mix 1 1/2 teaspoons of the seasoning mix into each 8-ounce carton of egg substitute and blend thoroughly.
Clean the skillet and place it back over high heat.
Heat it to 300°, about 2 to 2 1/2 minutes.
Spray it lightly with vegetable-oil spray and add 1 carton of egg mixture.
Turn the heat to medium and cook for 30 seconds.
With a spatula push the cooked eggs from the outside rim of the skillet toward the center.
When about 3/4 of the eggs have cooked, add 1/2 cup of the crawfish mixture across the center, then gently fold the omelet in half.
Cook 1 minute, then turn over and cook 1 minute on the other side.
Carefully slide the omelet to a plate and top with 1/2 cup of the crawfish mixture.
Repeat the process with the other 3 omelets.
