  1. Place the onions and oil in a 2-quart casserole.
  2. Cover with a lid or vented plastic wrap and microwave on high for 4 minutes, or until tender.

  4. Saute over medium heat for 5 minutes.
  5. Stir in the bread crumbs, Romano cheese, basil, mustard and pepper.

  8. Wipe out the frying pan with paper towels.
  9. Place it over medium-high heat.
  10. Add 1 tsp margarine and swirl the pan.
  11. Add half the eggs.
  12. Lift and rotate the pan so the eggs are evenly distributed.
  13. As the eggs set around the edges, lift them to allow uncooked portions to flow underneath.

  15. Use a spatula to fold the omelet in half.
  16. Transfer to a serving platter.
  17. Repeat with the remaining margarine, eggs and filling.
