I've made this for holiday breakfasts and shower brunches. It's a big hit. It's also a welcome change at covered-dish dinners at church. There's never another one like it there.—Anita Gattis, Hawkinsville, Georgia
I love serving foods that both complement and contrast with each. This flavorful egg dish can be made in minutes and easily doubled. Sometimes I use leftover taco meat or chopped ham instead of bacon.—Michelle Krzmarzick, Redondo Beach, California
Tomatoes and green chilies give color and zip to this very cheesy egg bake. It makes a hearty breakfast or brunch entree - or you can enjoy a square topped with salsa for lunch or supper.

"In an effort to eat healthier, I've been playing around with some recipes, including this hearty omelet," writes field editor Cathee Bethel of Lebanon, Oregon. The bountiful blend of tomatoes, kidney beans, cheese and onion makes it a satisfying centerpiece for breakfast, brunch or supper.
When our family sits down for breakfast on days when this do-ahead dish is on the menu, I can relax and join them. I like to serve it with fresh fruit and homemade rolls. Plus, it adds a nice touch to a celebration brunch.
