    Karen From Colorado's Note:

    This Omelet is very light and fluffy. Fill it with any of your favorite fillers. Makes a very attractive presentation. Keep in mind that, although this dish looks very big, it is not as filling as you might think because it is such a light omelet.

      Oh my !!! This was an absolutely delicious omelet. I had made it for lunch and it was the perfect amount, so light and tasty. I perhaps cooked it just a bit too much in the skillet but it still worked out fine though. I had filled mine with ham and cheddar and had poured a bit of Hollandaise sauce over it. Had a few fruits on the side. This was just so worth the time in beating the eggs separately. Thanks for sharing your recipe Karen...I will be making these more often.

      This was a little more difficult than a regular omelet (beating the egg whites and yolks separately) but still FUN recipe to make. I felt like I was doing a neat science experiment). I couldn't believe how puffy the eggs turned out! Definitely the recipe to choose to impress! I sauteed some spinach/broccoli for the filling, adding some pepper jack cheese and sliced jalapenos. I served mine with some broccoli sprouts and guacamole (fabulous!) Thanks for posting- Roxygirl

      Unbelievable. So easy, and what an impressive presentation. My boyfriend said it was the best he's ever had...he compared it to a fancy breakfast place we have here in Portland ME and said it was better than what they serve! A+++++
