      Very good. I liked how water was added instead of milk. I didn't have it with taco sauce, Also I added bacon and sausage to mine. But very good nonetheless.

      Easy straight forward omelet that has great flavor. Adding water instead of milk give the omelete a slightly different, pleasing texture. If I say chewy that is too strong an adjective, not spongy but just slightly different. I liked it. I used Jalapeno Gouda for the cheese and added 2 slices crisp real bacon chopped up & pre fried. Thanks Nurse Di for a lovely Sunday Brunch
