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

"made it with four eggs and adjusted for it-my husband and I really thought it was very good- will make again"

"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."

"Great way to make omelets for a crowd or family! You can easily change up the meats or add some favorite veggies to suit your families taste!"

"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."
