Puffy Apple Omelet Recipe

Publisher Photo
Meet the Cook: With all the eggs our chickens produce, I could make this omelet every day! I guess I consider it to be mostly a festive dish, but you could fix it anytime...including for a light supper. Growing up in a big family - seven children - of big eaters, I started cooking early. Now, I have a husband who likes to eat! We're the parents of one son, 8, and two daughters, 6 and 4. -Melissa Davenport, Campbell, Minnesota

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 22, 2012

This was really good and really fluffed up in the oven. It was light but filling and I enjoyed the tartness of the apples. Next time, I'll try cooking the apples in the cinnamon and sugar to get them a little softer, before putting them in the oven.

MY REVIEW

Outstanding. I think it should be called a puffy pancake though. My husband won't eat eggs, and he never knew!

I used whole wheat pastry flour and Stevia and it was fabulous. Light and guilt free!

My husband and I had this for dinner tonight. We love it so much, I'm going to quadruple the recipe so that we'll have enough for our kids!
