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 by far the easiest and best baked omelet recipe. No special ingredients....always have these staples on hand anyway...I used milk instead of 1/2 and 1/2 and chopped up some turkey pepperoni instead of ham....a little healthier and delicious. A keeper for sure... had to bake an extra 10 minutes for center to be set."

"Excellent recipe! I used more ham, cheese, bell pepper than stated because I love ham, cheese and bell peppers! The onion I had on hand was kind of strong so I used a bit less. I used an 11" x 7" glass baking dish and baked it for about 30 to 35 minutes. I inserted a knife in the center and it came out clean. I let it rest for a few minutes before serving. It was delicious! My husband loved it! I put the leftovers in the fridge and he just ate the leftovers for dinner. I asked my husband if this was a keeper and he said definitely!"
