Although it's easy, the omelet looks like you fussed. Sometimes I toss in mushrooms and cheddar cheese for a different flavor. —Laurel Roberts, Vancouver, Washington

"Delicious and so easy! I halved the recipe using 2 whole eggs and 1/2 cup egg substitute with no problem. I used microwave bacon, and sprayed the casserole with cooking spray. I baked it in a convection toaster oven, and it cooked in 25 minutes. I will definitely make this again. Thanks for posting!"

"I make this for the office crew almost every Friday...they love it! And it doesn't take long to prepare. I use veggies instead of bacon as we have a couple of vegetarians in the group. Also, have used egg beaters which came out fine as well!"

"I made a variation of this dish. I actually used sausage rather than bacon, and white onions rather than green. I think this is a great little dish. I will use it again and add other veggies to it as well."

"Really good and easy. Made a half portion for husband and self and used 1/2 monterey jack and 1/2 pepper jack cheeses for a little kick. Reheats well. A keeper."

"Re: Jack Cheese Omelets.

I, par boil a few potatoes then slice them when they are cool and lay in the bottom of the pan/dish after which I put in the rest of the ingredients as you do and prepare them the same way. I, add Mexican green peppers from a the can and I sometimes substitute Mozzarella Cheese for the cheese. After baking and ready serve I heat up some Salsa for those who like it on top. Always a favorite with family and friends.

"Could this be baked in individual casserole dishes? And if so, would the length of baking time change?
