I was out for breakfast with my daughter one day, and she had an omelet that looked so delicious. She asked why her omelets never turned out like in the restaurant.
This recipe came in an E-mail from Allrecipes.com and I decided to try it. If you were making breakfast for company, it works great because it's baked and you have some time once it's in the oven to finish other menu items, or just to visit.
This recipe is a keeper. I shared it with my neighbor, and she gave it a thumbs up approval.
