Puffy Apple Omelet Recipe

Puffy Apple Omelet Recipe

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
