Our family raised chickens, making my mother naturally creative with eggs. Since dad didn't care for eggs alone but did like fish, she often mixed eggs with salmon. I still prepare this wholesome omelet today.
Our home economists use deli turkey, onion, garlic and green pepper to give a tasteful twist to a sunrise staple. The cheese-topped omelet looks special enough for company but leaves brunch hosts plenty of time to relax.
Meet the Cook: As the cook for our local volunteer fire department, I'm a nonstop recipe clipper. This one's been a constant in my file for years. It's great for grabbing and going, and a good lunch dish, too.
Here on our farm, my husband - who's also a teacher - and I have cattle and hogs plus one chicken who furnishes many of our eggs. We are the parents of a 6-year-old daughter.

My Italian mother-in-law taught me to make this omelet years ago—she would make it for breakfast, lunch or dinner and eat it on Italian bread. I frequently use leftover broccoli from a previous meal for this dish. —Mary Licata, Pembroke Pines, Florida
When my family visits, I love to make my nephew Robbie happy by making any breakfast with pork and cheese. I created this as a twist on the traditional breakfast sandwich. —Kelly Boe, Whiteland, Indiana
