Cooking Lab - Skinny Big Breakfast: Smoked Salmon Omelette (燻鮭歐姆雷特西式早餐)

Omelettes are extremely versatile because you can put almost anything you want in them. 

I had some smoked salmon, french onion and mini cheese kransky laying around so whipped them all together into one big breakfast dish and it turned out pretty amazing.
