    Caroline Cooks's Note:

    Tastes like a breakfast souffle. The secret for making this fluffy is to separate the eggs. Add other veggies, if you desire. How much of the onion, pepper and chives is your choice. I use a cast iron skillet, so that it can go straight into the oven from range top.

      A lovely light and fluffy omelette that I enjoyed for my lunch yesterday! I ate this with a fresh lettuce and cucumber salad - the lettuce was freshly picked from my garden! I also used fresh chives from the garden and used an oregano flower for garnish. I cut this back to half, and used two eggs, as it was just for me. It was really puffed up and fluffy when I took it out of the oven, but sank a bit as I took so long to take my photos - oh well. Made for the Magic of Herbs in the Photo's Forum and as a little welcome back tag for Caro - glad you are back darlink! FT:-)
