Lovely light omelet, enjoyed it very much. I snipped some chives into the mix with the blossoms, both chives and parsley fresh from the garden, delicious!! I used a little more Swiss than called for and it ran out when I cut it in half, but mmmm sooo good! thanks for posting, i will be making it again.

Perfect omelet! The Swiss cheese did not overpower the omelet and was the perfect amount. Fresh chive blossoms and parsley from our garden made for a memorable anniversary breakfast this morning! Thank you for posting the recipe. PS I reduced the eggs to three and warmed the unshelled eggs first for five minutes in a bowl of warm water.
