I like this omelet recipe best because it is ideal for a quick outdoor breakfast or brunch.

Herbs, cheese, and eggs are combine together to make a great alternative to standard breakfast dishes, and is always well received.

Add onion and bell peppers for a delicious, Spanish omelet type twist.

Serve with toast or savory quick bread, and perhaps some fresh fruit, for a quick, delicious and satisfying start to a new day.
