Interesting variation of an omelet! The flour added volume but for my palate the flavor was a bit bland. I liked the salad though.
This was really pretty to look at and delicious to eat. The onions were especially sweet and succulent. I left out the goat's cheese and it was still flavorful and filling. I had never thought of using flour in an omelet, and it worked very well. I'll make this again! Made for ZWT III
