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
I knew this delicious recipe was a "keeper" when I first tried it in the 1970s as a new bride- it impressed my in-laws when I made it for them! Now I sometimes substitute Mexican or Cajun seasoning for the basil. No matter how it's seasoned, it's wonderful.
"I clipped this recipe from our local paper a few years ago," recalls Maxine Smith from Owanka, South Dakota. "It's a tasty lunch treat for hearty appetites. Plan on doubling the recipe for hungry grandkids," she adds.

This recipe is a keeper because all the components of a great breakfast go into one dish, making the morning less hectic for the cook. My family says it reminds them of their favorite fast-food sandwich—only better, of course!—Amanda Denton, Barre, Vermont
My husband requests this all the time! Often I bake one on the weekend and use it for a quick breakfast during the week. It calls for just a handful of ingredients and is so quick to make. —Suzanne Kern
