Crushed red pepper , also known as red pepper flakes, are a condiment consisting of dried and crushed (as opposed to ground) red chili peppers. Crushed red pepper flakes are made from hot dried red peppers.
Crushed red pepper shakers have become as standard as salt and pepper on tables at Italian restaurants and especially pizza parlors in the United States. So common, in fact, are the red pepper flakes as a pizza ingredient that the spice is also known as "the pizza pepper".
Red pepper flakes are not made of one type of chili, but from various combinations of ancho, bell, cayenne and more. Often there is a high ratio of seeds, which intensifies the heat of the pepper.
Crushed red pepper flakes are used in pickling, chowders, gumbos, spaghetti sauce, pizza sauce and sausage. As chilis have become more popular the styles and varieties of peppers used to make crushed red pepper has also increased.

Omelette is one of my favourite breakfast, because it's so quick and easy to make, and I can use whatever veggies I have on hand, so versatile.
Made up this recipe with these listed ingredients that I had at that moment. It came out very good, and I had it with some potato and sweet potato hash browns that I made on my own. Great combination.
