Frequently Asked Questions
This recipe calls for the use of very simple, classic ingredients that you’re most likely to find in your pantry. However, that doesn’t mean you need to stick to using just those ingredients. In fact, you can also add a lot more into the mix, and make the bread omelet more healthy and nutritious.
