      I cut this recipe in half using 5 eggs about and 1/4 cup parsley and 1 tsp dried tarragon. I think I should have cut back a bit more on the parsley and used chives instead of the tarragon since the tarragon flavor still overwhelmed the eggs. But we still enjoyed the omlet and it was a nice change from the usual omlets we have. Thanks for sharing!

      Very easy to follow instructions. I cut the recipe back to 2 eggs and the herbs were a bit overpoering - This may have been my fault not the recipe. Next time I will cut back more on the herbs than the downsized omelette calls for. Served with leftover oven fried potatoes with mixed peppers and a small ham steak and 16 grain toast. Thanks Polar bear for a nice brunch
