"My husband, Bob, and I operate a bed-and-breakfast, omelets are our 'friends'," confirms Massachusetts field editor Charlotte Baillargeon of Hinsdale. "Omelets are sort of the 'stew' of eggs - you can add almost any leftover vegetable or meat into the filling. This is one of our favorite combinations."
This recipe is easy to make, but it looks like you cooked for hours. I like to serve it with broiled grapefruit topped with brown sugar and ginger for breakfast, and a mixed green-tomato salad tossed with balsamic vinaigrette for brunch or dinner. —Nadine Mesch, Mount Healthy, OH
"I came up with these crispy quesadillas because my family found breakfast burritos too messy," says Terri Capps of Witchita, Kansas. "They're fast to fix, fun to eat, filling and healthy...and you can add or subtract ingredients to fit individual tastes."
This tasty breakfast dish is a snap to make with convenient frozen hash browns. It gets its colorful look and fresh flavor from broccoli, red pepper and green onions. I take this egg dish to all of our church brunches and bring home an empty skillet every time.

The very first time I served this luscious omelet to my husband and young daughters, it became a yuletide tradition! Now I always double the savory recipe and sometimes substitute cheddar for Swiss cheese.
