Loved this omelet. I had a couple of issues - not the recipes fault. My mixer broke while I was beating the egg whites. aarghhh. Then I cooked it a little too long on the stove top so it was a little overly browned. Still tasted wonderful though. For the mushrooms, I used recipe #145922 (also by Rita) and used a combination of chanterelles, shiitake, morels, porcini and cremini mushrooms and shallots. Great flavors and thanks for sharing Rita. Made for ZWT5 2009.
