Delicious! My older brother used to make apple-cinnamon omelets for the family, and this recipe was pure nostalgic bliss! I left out the raisins, almonds, and cream fraiche (to be more like my brother used to make), but I'll use that next time. I also used 2 whole eggs and an equal amount of egg whites; since I used a large apple, the proportions were perfect, and the final product made 2 good size servings. Thanks for an amazing recipe!
