    I had never made an omelette with Swiss before. It was really good. I use water in place of milk often. It makes them fluffy.

    Give credit to those that try. I cook professionally and this omelet is a great way to start for those that are learning.

    I made the omelet exactly like the recipe calls for just a few minutes ago. It is easy and simple. However I like more in an omelet than this one calls for and I personally prefer Milk instead of water mixed in with the egg. I suppose everyone likes something different or we would be dull people. I like Sliced Mushrooms and Green onions diced and sauteed in butter then set aside while I make the omelet. In a small amount of butter I cook the egg on both sides then add back the sliced mushooms and onion, the ham, and cheese flip one side of he egg over and heat through on a low heat then remove to the plate. Once in awhile I even enjoy fresh diced garden tomatoes or Plum tomatoes halved for the flavor. But that is more complicated than this cook intended. Again personal choices. If I'm making omelets for the family I have an assortment of ingredients and let each person select what they want.

    I appreciate that Taste of Home has simply recipes for beginner cooks. A simply recipe for an omelet will give everyone confidence to try.
