"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."

"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."

"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."
