Delicious. I didn't have the tomato... and used American cheese. Very rich breakfast.... yummy.

Good omelet for spring. Hollandaise sauce is a must. Overall flavor is mild, but rich.

I wanted to make a special breakfast for my husband before the holiday crazy started. This is wonderful- a nice change from bacon and sausage omelets. I did not stir in the tomatoes with the egg mixture. I added it to the eggs when adding the rest of the fillling. Hollandaise sauce on top is a must. Thanks keen5 for a real keeper.
