“My source for this recipe is the California Egg Commission & I amended it slightly. It's a new favourite for me - a great way to solve the question of "What can I cook for dinner using just what I already have in the fridge?" When you also factor in that it's healthy, hearty & tasty - it becomes an easy choice. It has a unique starting point ... you've just finished making 2 basic omelets (plain or cheese work well). This recipe targets a family of 4, but can be adjusted as needed. For a family, you'll cook 1 kid-size omelet to split in a 9 in non-stick skillet & 1 adult-size omelet to split in a full size skillet. Cook them over low to med heat w/a lid on the skillets till well-set. You may turn them if you like, but do not fold them. Slide them out onto a serving platter or dinner plate so the real recipe can begin ...”
