    Altered ingredient amounts. Added tomatoes x 2 large - thinly sliced - this added even more flavour - left out chillies.  -  14 Apr 2011


    Great alternative to traditional omelette. Decreased the amount by 3 as i was making for 2 of us. Very filling on its own so no need for side dishes. It's also very flexible that u can add whatever is ur favourite filling and turns out just as delicious!!  -  08 Nov 2011


    Excellent and so easy to prepare - had as a main meal but would also be ideal for a weekend breakfast.  -  14 Apr 2011
