My Thai brother-in-law made this omelet for us once and now it’s one of our favorite weekend breakfasts. Eaten with rice, it’s an easy breakfast for dinner too. You can use whatever veggies you have on hand, but we like tomatoes, scallions and cilantro.

I posted my recipe for homemade (preservative-free) corned beef earlier this week and I was sure to make extra for a couple of my favorite corned-beef dishes: corned beef hash and Reuben sandwiches.
