Very tasty, I must say

While looking at the ingredients, I surmised that this would simply make a very substantial omelet. WRONG!! Let me say that I did not use the cheese listed in the recipe. Instead I used a three cheese (Parmesan, Romano, and as I ago) blend. I was very pleased with the results. Tasty, for certain. Give it a try!!
