I like omelets but don't always have time to stand by the stove. That's why I favor this oven-baked variety that I can quickly pop into the oven at a moment's notice. My family frequently requests this for Sunday brunch. They always empty the dish. —Ellen Bower, Taneytown, Maryland

"I am not sure why this recipe is getting such good reviews!?? This was dry & spongy in texture. This does not even come close to a regular omelette cooked in a skillet on the stiove-top. I will not make this oven omelette again."

"My go-to recipe when making omelets. So easy and delicious. I use milk instead of half & half with no difference."

"This is a great way to use leftover ham. Easy to change the ingredients. I've added mushrooms, replaced 1/2 and 1/2 with milk, subtracted onions, and used green onions. I don't think I've made it the same way twice, but have always had great results. Delicious."

"I made my version of this for brunch last weekend. I used shredded parmesan cheese instead - added ham and sweet pepper (no onion) and a teaspoon of dried tarragon. Was delicious. I've already shared it with friends and family."

"I made this for breakfast, and it was delicious. I used only 5 eggs and adjusted the rest of the recipe. We don't eat ham, so I substituted with some leftover beef. This is a very versatile recipe and allows for changes that might need to be made. I am keeping this recipe and will definitely make it again. Thanks for the recipe."
