MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 6, 2013

This recipe was very simple to prepare, be aware of the heat under your skillet so you do not burn over cook the top side of your omelet. I put 6 sprigs of asparagus inside because I love asparagus. I also added a drop of sour cream and sprinkled cheddar cheese on top. Served with some fresh fruit. Delicious!
