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.
As a busy working mom, my breakfast needs to require minimal prep. I often combine the egg mixture beforehand and refrigerate overnight. Then all I have to do in the morning is heat up my skillet. My favorite part is the goat cheese filling, which gets nice and creamy from the heat of the omelet. —Lynne Dieterle, Rochester Hills, Michigan
For over 30 years we have hosted a New Years Breakfast for family and friends. The main attraction for years was Belgium waffles...until I came up with this omelet that is baked in the oven and then rolled up sliced and served. —Sharon Ballou, Randall, Minnesota
"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."
"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.

Instead of the usual ham and cheese, try dressing up eggs with strawberries and cream cheese. "I first tasted this dish while vacationing at the beach," recalls Selina Smith of Frostburg, Maryland. "We like it now as a change of pace for dinner."
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.
