We really enjoy these layered omelets. The only downside is that there are two pie plates and some mixing bowls to wash afterward. But the omelets are tasty, the presentation is attractive and unique, and the cheese sauce is fantastic!

I feel stupid because I was so into mixing the yolks with the cornstarch that I forgot to put water into it. I had already folded the whites into the yolk when I realized this. I threw the water in anyway.It came out just like it was pictured so we still loved it. However this makes a big dish so I would recommed it for a family meal.
