No, chef! Abby Elliott reveals she could not eat the potato chip omelet on The Bear due to pregnancy food aversions.

On the Tuesday, June 4 episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, the actress, 36, reveals she was pregnant during the filming of The Bear season 2, making her unable to eat the season’s iconic omelet without a spit bucket.

“So I was pregnant season 2, actually pregnant on the show, and the one food aversion I had was to eggs,” the mom of two explains. “And so Sydney makes Natalie this beautiful omelet, it’s got goat cheese and potato chips, and I had to have a spit bucket.”

She continues, “And Ayo [Edebiri] executed it perfectly, you know, she was like practicing in the kitchen. She did two takes, I think, and I had to spit it out.”

What would have made the omelet edible at the time for Elliott?

“If it had Sour Patch Kids on it,” she jokes. “Then I would’ve been like ‘Okay, let’s go!’”

The SNL alum shares that her son William "Billy," whom she shares with husband Billy Kennedy, is now 12-months old, and he loves both eggs and potato chips.

“Maybe you’ll learn how to make it, and make it for him,” host Kimmel remarks.
