I grow 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
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.“
Meet the Cook: With all the eggs our chickens produce, I could make this omelet every day! I guess I consider it to be mostly a festive dish, but you could fix it anytime...including for a light supper.
Growing up in a big family - seven children - of big eaters, I started cooking early. Now, I have a husband who likes to eat! We're the parents of one son, 8, and two daughters, 6 and 4.

Every Saturday for 10 years, my husband has gotten together with his " breakfast club"-good friends who take turns cooking for the group in their homes. The "boys" all love his cheesy artichoke omelet, and Jack appreciates the easy cleanup.
"My son, Jeremy, has been helping around the kitchen since he was big enough to stand on a kitchen chair and stir something," relates Sandy Cork of Melvin, Michigan. "One of his favorite recipes is this pizza-flavored omelet."
"Omelets are one of my husband's specialties," relates Glenn Powell of Havana, Florida. "His fast-to-fix filling of fresh-tasting vegetables and cheese adds a one-of-a-kind taste the whole family enjoys."
