    Wonderful! Light and fluffy. I loved the combination of cheddar and mozzarella, as did DH. I don't use garlic salt, so I substituted garlic powder and I sauteed the veggies slightly, personal preference.. A keeper, thanks for posting the great clear instructions!. Made for I RECOMMEND 2012

    The DM and the DS thank you very much for this very filling and delicious breakfast, the only change I made was to use all sharp cheddar and yellow and orange capsicum/bell peppers and omited the optional garlic salt and served with buttered wholemeal/wholegrain toast. Thank you, made for I Recommend tag game and recommended by lazyme.

    Fantastic! I was very tempted to saute the green pepper and mushrooms a little bit before adding to the omelet, but I'm so glad that I didn't. This is one of those recipes that shows how the taste can change depending on how you prep the ingredients. This omelet really allowed each veggie's fresh flavor to come thru perfectly. Thanks once more Kitten. Made for Zaar Stars tag game.

    These were really, really good. Made 2 for dinner tonight. Skipped the tomatoes and bell pepper in dh's because he doesn't care for them. Sauteed fresh mushrooms in butter with some chopped yellow onion I wanted to use, then sauteed the bell pepper for me in the mushroom drippings. I also added some cooked crumbled bacon to the filling. I added the cheeses to the filling instead of putting on top, then folded the egg over and let it cook a moment longer until the cheese melted some. When plating, I sprinkled the top with some grated Parmesan and green onion tops. Dh and I both loved this. Even better, I finally made an omelet that looks and tastes like an omelet. Until tonight I've always been "omelet challenged". Thanks Kittencal, for a recipe that finally let me make a really yummy omelet!
