I agree this omelet is very tasty. It's great when you find a quick easy recipe that comes out better than any restaurant. We made a couple tweaks to our liking; added 1 Tbsp of yogurt cause I find this helps make omelets abit more fluffy. For even more flavour I added a dash of hot sauce along with some chopped banana peppers in the eggs and finely chopped jalapeno with the bell peppers. We like our omelets meaty so we increased abit, rather than measuring by cups we measure by ounce's, normally use 5 - 6 oz. Awesome recipe, thanks for sharing.
This was a wonderful omelet, had lots of ingredients to make for a tasty meal. I had no sausage, so mine just had ham, which was fine. I also cut the cheese back, just added enough to give it a taste. I also added tomatoes as my garden is overflowing, so every recipe I can add tomatoes to I do. This would be great for supper, as it is a very filling omelet. Made for ZWT8
Thanks, Lainey, for this delicious omelette! I liked the ham and sausage together and the cheese really made it "oozy." I will make this one again. Fantastic for an easy week-night supper. Made for PAC, spring 2009.
