      Have made this a lot. I add fresh spinach and also use whole eggs. This is a keeper!

      This is very good. I cut down on the oil a little bit, and used a reduced fat mozzarella. Very tasty.

      I like it a lot. I made it with cooked bulgar on the bottom mostly, like a crust. A bit healthier, and I used real eggs too (I justified the real eggs because of the bulgar, haha). I think this would be lovely with baby spinich, or any other omelet-friendly veggies... keep up the good work!
