Perfectly fluffy and tender omelet with amazing flavor. The mushroom and swiss combination is always a winner, but the thyme and chives really make it special. I added a bit of shredded cheddar and caramelized onion as well just because I had em :)

Yum! This was simple and had a really nice mix of ingredients. I had a little trouble flipping it, but it still tasted great. Thanks Rita for sharing. Made for ZWT7 for the Emerald City Shakers.
