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.

Excellent flavor with the touch of garlic. I cut the recipe back to 2 eggs (serve one). Browned the mushrooms & garlic added the eggs directly to the pan, covered the pan and 5 minutes all was reeady. Served with fresh cucumbers, sweet onion & tomatoes. Thanks for a lovely brunch

Just made half a recipe, and didn't remove the mushrooms from the pan, added the other butter and poured the egg mix over, swirled the pan to distribute the egg mix, missed the parsley, was out of it, flipped it to half then folded it in half again. Very good, it made a delicious supper for just me. Thanks for posting
