This is a hearty omelete suitable for Brunch, Lunch or Dinner - It is delicious. I ran out of Shitake mushrooms so I used regular ones - I did not want to use reconstituted Shitake in an omelet. The trick to making this an easy dish to prepare is have everything ready ahead of time EG mushrooms fried, bacon cooked, tomatoes chopped then it only takes apprx 5 minutes to make. I cover the omelete with a lid wnen I first pour it into the pan and cover it again after I flipped half over, browned perfectly Thanks for a lovely Brunch dish Good luck in the contest.

This is a belly full! The omelet is more like a crepe so filled with good ingredients. I used only 2 slices of bacon and it was plenty. I do suggest to crumble before adding to omelet. There is a lot of fat between the bacon and 2 tablespoons oil! There would be no problem cutting it down to 1 tablespoon. as for the cheese I used smoked gouda. Very good!
