Caroline made another HUGE ham & spinach omelet for breakfast yesterday, and I talked her into sharing the recipe (and all her secrets!) with us. 🙂

You can use any choice of fillings of course, cut the recipe in half if you please, etc.

I find the omelets are just as good leftover and reheated as they are the first time, so I love having the leftovers for easy meals to grab & heat. 😉

I hope you enjoyed this recipe! I am in LOVE with Caroline’s beautiful omelets, and excited to finally learn how to make them myself.:)
