Omelette is one of my favourite breakfast, because it's so quick and easy to make, and I can use whatever veggies I have on hand, so versatile.
Made up this recipe with these listed ingredients that I had at that moment. It came out very good, and I had it with some potato and sweet potato hash browns that I made on my own. Great combination.
