Soufflé omelette

Based on 19 ratings

"Inviting breakfast for dinner reminds me of being a kid, begging my mom for pancakes on a Tuesday evening, just because I could. This soufflé omelette takes that same notion, but sort of fancies it up a bit with Gruyère cheese (leave out if you like or swap with shredded cheddar or low-moisture mozzarella) and minced chives. Serve with a big piece of toast and a simple salad for a meal—fitting for breakfast, lunch, or dinner."
