      Carrie, This sounds really great! I especially like the fact you can make the sauce ahead of time in the refrigerator. That way, in the morning it will take just a jiffy to make the omelet. Thank you for posting this! Love, Becky

      I enjoyed Mr Nixon's omelete but found even after cutting back on the lemon it was still very predominating lemon flavor, perhaps I had a very juicy one but I only used half a lemon. I added 9 drops of Tabasco sauce and did not find it too hot. Served with Pheasant bread toast and pan fried potatoes. Thanks for a nice Sunday brunch carriesheridan
