      This is good. I used sweet butter (unsalted), sea salt, freshly ground black pepper, plum tomatoes, light feta cheese, plus the rest of the ingredients. Made for WELCOME TO EGYPT!

      I scaled this back for 1/2 an omelette and the DM and I thoroughly enjoyed. I chopped up my tomatoes as I knew I would have my veggie hating DM eat it up and I was a little lazy and just left the skin on and instead of trying to flip it I stuck it under the grill/broiler to finish off and served with some buttered wholemeal/wholegrain toast. Thank you Um Safia for a very satisfying breakfast with some lovely flavours, made for ZAAR Chef Alphabet Soup tag game.

      I made this for Little Miss (DD) and Hubby (I don't eat eggs) for breakfast and they both enjoyed it. I used fresh home grown tomatoes so I didn't peel the skin off. I had trouble when I turned the omelette as it broke in a few pieces, I think I left the tomatoes cook for to long which made more moisture. However the family gobbled it all up and there was nothing left in their plate. Thank you Um Safia
