This is great to make for suhr! It's a little different than the traditional omelet that most are used to, but it does make a great dish to eat for suhr during ramadan! Ramadan Kareem!

I had this for breakfast on a saturday morning with fresh veggies, hummus and algerian farina rolls #309705. I scrambled the eggs just because i prefer it personally. Made for Ramadan Tag Game 2009.

Delicious eggs I liked it with the mint. Gave it that middle eastern flair. Made for Ramadan Tag 2008. :)

Oh yeah, this was delicious!!! I used all 6 eggs in my 12" cast iron skillet to make 1 large omelet. Then ate the whole thing. I used dry mint & couldn't really taste it - I'll bet fresh would be MUCH better (or try more than 1tsp dry). Made for Ramadan Tag.
