I made this lovely breakfast omelet on Sunday morning before church. It was easy, and quick to put together. I used Mexican oregano with the garlic, and cumin. It made the oregano taste a bit stronger, but that is the way we like it. Thanks for posting such a wonderful, easy, Sunday breakfast. It will be used a again. :-)

Made this for breakfast this morning. My family really enjoyed this. We loved the blend of seasonings and my DH wants to know when I will make it again. Thanks for a great recipe!

This is an excellent alternative to pan omelettes with the advantage that everyone's eggs can be ready at the same time. I cut back to 1 tbsp. on the chili peppers and added about 1/4 cup of chopped tomatoes. Came out very light and full of flavour.
