Yum! This tasted like breakfast from some unique restaurant, but it was so easy! I only used some garlic powder and salt for flavoring. Thanks!
Options used: dill weed and pepper, sliced calamata olives. 1/4 can tuna per omelet. No extra cheese. All we had in the house was half a can of tuna, cream cheese and eggs... I wouldn't have believed it, but this was really good. Husband also liked it; he didn't have any olives.
Snowy morning in New England, and we were STARVING. I've had my eye on this recipe for ages, and we had all the necessary ingredients in the house. YUMMY! Really nice looking omelet and even better tasting. Loved the use of cream cheese- makes it rich and creamy. I doubled the eggs, because of prior reviews saying there was too much filling. This turned out to be a big hearty omelet, split in half for two. I used FF 1/2 and 1/2, and 1/3 less fat cream cheese. Seasoned with garlic powder, oregano, cayenne and salt and pepper. Fantastic.
