Feta & Herbs Omelet

This is a not-really-classic Greek take on a classic French omelet recipe. Feta and mint make a beautiful marriage that will elevate your omelet to an amazing level of creaminess, umami, acidity, and greeny freshness!

If you like magic, finish your Greek omelet with toasted and ground fennel seeds.

You can replace the feta with any type of similar salty cheese and use black pepper instead of fennel seeds, if you prefer.

My favorite savory pastry is spanakopita, and this combination reminds me of that beautiful flavor and great time spent in Greece.
