"This is simply amazing...it was quick, easy to prepare and a new favorite for my hubby..."
"Wow, really good! I had jalapeno cheddar cream cheese on hand so used that. Wonderful!"
"Good taste, easy to prepare."
"Simple, easy and taste great as is, but also a great base to add other ingredients, especially vegetables - broccoli, spinach, mushrooms, . This is a summertime staple, quick, easy supper for busy summertime weeknights."
"SO good! As one other reviewer said, I added spinach. With or without, this is a regular now!"
"I love this and so did my daughter! great for brunch!"
"Great recipe! I used some freshly cooked spinach and scallions. What is really great about this recipe is the instructions. This is the first omelet I every made that tastes like the omelets served by good restaurants! While the recipe makes a very large omelet, it can be easily changed to a one serving recipe just by cutting the ingredients in half."
"Better than cream cheese on a bagel. YUM"
"Simple easy to make and delicious! Excellent."
"Great! So easy and the warm cream cheese makes it feel so decadent. I halfed the recipe since it was just me this morning and used a small skillet so it wouldn't spread out too far and it turned out fine."
