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

"This is a winner! I made some changes based on personal taste and what I had on hand: red pepper instead of green, condensed milk instead of half and half, and lite Polish kielbasa instead of ham. I doubled the peppers and onions and cut the kielbasa slices into fourths and browned them in a frying pan before adding to the egg mixture. It took 35 minutes to bake in an 8x8 baking dish, and as suggested, it should be generously greased. The omelet is light, fluffy and flavorful, and can be easily adapted to personal tastes."

"was half and half cream"

"This was really good! I doubled the recipe for a 9x13 pan and it only took about 10 more minutes to cook. I think I'll just use milk next time as the half and half seemed to add a slightly sweet flavor for some strange reason. Maybe that was just the half and half I used."

"I always use fat free half and half and cheese. Always comes out great."

"My adult kids really enjoyed this recipe for brunch. It did take about 35 minutes to bake in my oven. . . was not close to done at 20 minutes. The other thing I would recommend is to GENEROUSLY grease your pan before putting in the egg mixture. Mine stuck some despite pre-greasing. Good recipe, though, and I will make again. Thanks."
