It’s always elegant to use goat cheese in a recipe: its mellow but strong-tasting flavour combines fantastically with eggs. I like to fold my omelette (even if the classic Italian “frittata” is normally not folded!), because the eggs and the filling mix gently together and remain soft. It’s a question of texture: in order to avoid dry folded omelettes, its important do not overcook them, I also add mozzarella cheese for extra velvety. (source: ritacooksitalian.com)
