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

"The first time I made this as stated in the recipe; felt that it was kind of bland. The second time I added salt, pepper, a quarter tsp of garlic powder, a dash of red pepper flakes, a few sauteed chopped button mushrooms and a handful of baby spinach (also chopped). Perfection!"

"Great casserole. I did leave it over night in fridge and gave it a stir next am and everything turned out A-OK. I have quite a few casseroles like this. Thanks for something new. J"

"My husband and I really liked this. I added some extra ham and extra eggs but otherwise followed the recipes. My changes were mostly because I had some things I needed to use up. Personally, I would prefer a different color pepper but my husband devoured two helpings of this with no complaints or issues. My kids weren't as thrilled and probably would have eaten more if I had left out the pepper completely. But it was very simple and I definitely think I'd make it again."
