Whittle Your Waist-Line With a Fluffy Omelet

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Caroline Cooks

Tastes like a breakfast souffle. The secret for making this fluffy is to separate the eggs. Add other veggies, if you desire. How much of the onion, pepper and chives is your choice. I use a cast iron skillet, so that it can go straight into the oven from range top.
