I got this recipe from our local paper The Press Enterprise in an article called "Fresh Herbs Make Omelet Appealing" by Renee Enna. I thought I better give her credit since I didn't invent it. I did make it though and it's wonderful. The face on the omelet is what made me do it, but it also turned out that it tasted really good. I love your website and use it often. I'm happy to finally contribute something. I hope you like it. I'll be coming back to see the comments people put in.

Very nice. Did not have tarragon but it was still full of flavor. I love the olive face idea. Thanks for posting.
