I call this my “Sunday Morning Omelet”  because even after being the old married woman I am (hee… hee..!) my loving husband makes this for me on Sunday mornings and even serves it to me as breakfast in bed. It kinda made me wonder at first what he had been up to! It is my favorite omelet and must be made with T.L.C.
