"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!"
