Mini Italian Healthy Omelette Recipe

An exquisite mini Italian healthy omelette recipe. Eggsactly what you need to start your day! Image: Mini Italian Bacon Mushroom OmeletteReally, just a few minutes of chopping, whipping, beating (oh hold on, this is starting to sound like a bad movie) a couple of eggs in a bowl and into the fry pan it goes. Easy as 123! Farm fresh eggs and a few veggies make a low fat healthy breakfast that will give you energy until your next meal. If you have to run out the door to work or take the little monsters (oops did I just say that? I meant kiddies) to school, you can prepare your veggies the night before and store in refrigerator. I only use 2 eggs per omelette and a small non-stick fry pan and one omelette is quite filling. You can include a piece of rye or whole grain toast on the side or not, the choice is yours.
