A simple breakfast made with great ingredients is the best way to begin any day. What makes a recipe like this so marvelous is you can create different flavors with a variety of seasonal meats and vegetables from local farms and markets. When whipping up breakfast, everyone can choose their own items and personalize their omelet to taste.
I substituted a bit chives for the parsley since they are what I have fresh from my little garden. I have a delicious lightly smoked salmon and I used a bit inside and as an accompaniment. Add fresh fruit, a delightful croissant, and you have created a lovely brunch.
