    MarieRynr's Note:

    This is a tasty supper omelet that I got from one of my newest cookbooks "Barefoot Contessa At Home". Todd and I love this. In the book she suggests serving it for breakfast, but we do it for supper. Served with a nice green salad, it fits the bill perfectly!

      I was watching an old episode of Barefoot Contessa on the Tivo one Sunday morning and decided that I had to make this omelet for Hubby and myself. It is so hearty with the potatoes and bacon and cheese. I served it with my Pumpkin Cornmeal Muffins for a great late breakfast/early lunch. (It says 2 servings, but I think that it could easily serve 4.)

      This was an outstanding omelet. It had just the right combination of cheeses and we loved the addition of the jalapenos and potatoes. Will be making again.
