This is an excellent omelet. It is light and fluffy and full of flavor. This recipe was featured in the collectors issue of Taste of Home's Light & Tasty..and light it is! It's easy to double the ingredients and use two pans so the whole family can eat at the same time! Thanks, Tootsie for posting..you saved me a bunch of typing!
