When our children were young, I prepared this recipe regularly because it's fast and easy. Loaded with cheese, Italian sausage, fresh mushrooms and garlic, the recipe makes two omelets, but the ingredients can easily be increased to suit larger families.—Catherine Fontana, Fox Lake, Illinois
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.
Our family raised chickens, making my mother naturally creative with eggs. Since dad didn't care for eggs alone but did like fish, she often mixed eggs with salmon. I still prepare this wholesome omelet today.
Wake up your taste buds with the yummy flavors of warm refried beans, salsa and shredded cheese in 15 minutes flat. Spice it up with a hot salsa, or add sizzling cooked bacon for a smoky twist. —Teresa Gunnell, Lovettsville, Virginia
Since wild rice is plentiful here, I love to create recipes starring that crunchy staple. Pork sausage helps spice up the mild rice flavor in this hearty omelet, which is draped with a silky-smooth cheese sauce. You can easily serve it to guests with little last-minute fuss.
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. This is one of my favorite ways to use up leftover broccoli. —Mary Licata, Pembroke Pines, Florida
I had grown tired of the same breakfast meals, so I wanted to make something more interesting. This fresh and flavorful omelet comes with a versatile sauce that can also be used as a nacho dip or topping, over mashed potatoes or inside burritos.—Susan Kieboam, Streetsboro, Ohio
