Kittencal's Greek Feta and Olive Omelette

yes baking powder you read correctly... this is the secret to the must fluffiest eggs! you may adjust all amounts to taste, since the feta cheese is highly salted I have left the salt as optional, if you really wanted to take this omelette to another level add in some fresh sauteed mushrooms slices :) --- also see my recipe#251220

    As I currently have access to a direct supply of wonderful free-range eggs direct from a farm, I've been making omelets pretty regularly, and this one with its classic Greek ingredients suited our taste preferences beautifully. :) I used Greek yoghurt instead of the whipping cream and added rosemary and sage to the oregano. As for the olives, I never buy any but kalamata olives: love them. I've used baking powder in omelets before and for me it's now a standard ingredient. To anyone checking out this recipe and considering making it, it's fabulous... and don't leave out the baking powder. Thanks KITTENCAL for another super-fabulous recipe! Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders.

    Oh wow! This is a quick and simple recipe but it is so delicious! Your directions are also spot-on; I very rarely get omelets to flip properly and this one came out just right! I, too, used kalamata olives (thanks for the excuse to get some LOL!) and I highly recommend that swap. Thanks for posting; I know I will make this again. Made for 123 hits tag.
