Delicious. I didn't follow the directions exactly as they were a bit confusing. I used all the requested ingredients down to the sea salt but guessed at the gram amounts using very fresh mushrooms and salted butter as that is what I had on hand. I continued as stated until step 5 and then just added the lightly beaten eggs to the same cast iron frying pan and covered over quite low heat until done. I may make this omelet again. Made for PAC Spring 2010.
