Cheesy Omlette

I have a new love of eggs.  You would not believe how many eggs go through in this household.

This is why one of my goals is to set up a chicken coop.  That way I can have free-range eggs right at my fingertips.

Chickens would also make great pets for the kids.

Eggs are used in so many different ways. Hard-boiled, poached, scrambled, as a binder, a coating, just to name a few.

Eggs are a fantastic protein source, which is no wonder why body-builders eat a lot of eggs, or egg whites more specifically.

This omelet recipe is super easy, and low in calories (if you are into that)
