I made this for my DH for breakfast today and he kept saying "I love this!" . You have a winner here! Thanks!
I often make an omelete for my Sunday Brunch and this was a very nice one. I used 2 eggs only and cheddar cheese inside instead of Monterray Jack Thanks NurseDi for yet another version of one of my favorites
