Summer Garden Omelet Recipe

Publisher Photo
Chock-full of fresh-picked garden flavor, this hearty omelet is cheesy, filling and ready in minutes. I often add chopped red pepper for color and variety. And for a light, extra-fluffy texture, try using 1/4-teaspoon of cornstarch per egg when mixing. Mary Relyea - Canastota, New York

"These look wonderful and I make mine in the zip lock steamer bags. I use one bag or the vegetables and then add it to eggs and cheese in the second bag. Microwave for 1.5 minutes. Fastest omelet in the west!"
