This cheesy, chock-full-of-flavor omelet is modeled after one Bernice Morris tasted and loved in a Marshfield, Missouri restaurant. “Mine is so hearty and rich-tasting that folks never guess it's low in fat,“ she confides.
Diane Hixon thinks her easy, eye-opening entree is something to crow about. “I call it Quiche Lorraine without the fuss of pie crust,“ she writes from Niceville, Florida. “And it also makes a wonderfully light, late-night meal or brunch item.“
I especially like this recipe because I can fix just one omelet that serves and completely satisfies the two of us, notes Cynthia Monachino Webb on Kenmore, New York. It also makes a fun, filling and colorful dish for holiday brunches.
I found this meatless dish in a recipe book I purchased along with a bag of Walla Walla sweet onions at a farm stand. When I ask my husband if he has any suggestions for dinner he often comes up with this.
"I lightened up this savory dish by using olive oil, one regular egg and three egg whites, explains Arlene Hammonds of Gray, Tennessee. "For a change of pace, I like to mix diced celery and parsley with different cheeses."
An egg fills the center of each savory serving of this fried bread from Terri Prudhomme of Moorhead, Minnesota. “Shredded wheat gives each slice a nice, crispy texture,” Terri assures. “Enjoy it plain or with syrup.”
White wine turns this egg dish into a sophisticated brunch specialty. "While staying with friends one weekend, we enjoyed the most wonderful eggs," says Phyllis Behringer of Defiance, Ohio. "I created this version to reduce the calorie and fat content."
In Guyton, Georgia, Michelle Revelle whips up a 15-minute omelet filled with cream cheese, ham and onion. "My husband and I are watching our cholesterol, so I use an egg substitute for this rich hearty recipe. He raves about it."
