Notes

This omelette is light and souffle-like in its texture. To retain this texture it is important not to overcook the egg. Do not be disappointed if the lovely puffy omelette flattens a little upon removing from the griller. For a slight variation, before putting under the griller, sprinkle with some grated cheese.
