Reviews for Jack Cheese Oven Omelet
"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!"
"619 mg of sodium in 1 piece of omelet... no thanks - I will eat my egg whites with green and red bells, green onions"
"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."
"This is so so delicious."
"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.Sally O. Arizona"
"Could this be baked in individual casserole dishes? And if so, would the length of baking time change?Ruthstew"
