      This was so good I could eat it every day. It is so simple that I could make it every day. I thought OMG! that's a lot of onions, but they caramelized to a sweetness that perfectly complemented the eggs. Made for ZWT 7.

      Well my DH was thrilled with the amount of onions in this omelet. I normally add onions just not this much so I gave this a try and let me tell you I will make omelets like this often. The sweetness of the onion shone through and made the breakfast this morning perfect for the beach. I made scrambled Italian sausage with spinach on the side so as not to change up the flavors of the omelet but I bet this will be great all mixed together. DH and I give your recipe 5 stars.

      Really delicious! I loved the caramelized onion flavour & and it had lots of it! I prepped the onions in advance as they take a while and then breakfast could be served when I was asked. I used salted butter, unrefined extra virgin olive oil, sea salt, freshly ground black pepper, plus the rest of the ingredients. I whisked the eggs with some sea salt before adding to the onions with a little shredded baby spinach (just because DH was expecting spinach omelet and I was wanting to play this game) I barely mixed them and then let them set, then folded in half and cooked until just done. We ate ours with rice crackers as a part of breakfast, to be gluten free. I will definitely make this encore. Made for ZWT7 Switzerland, for my team Food.Commandos
