Prepared with flavorful ham and sour cream, this egg mixture bakes up to a fluffy finish. “The recipe was handed down to me from my grandmother, who got it from my great-grandmother,” shares Jennifer Holub of Clarendon Hills, Illinois. TIP: “After baking, slide the omelet onto a warm plate and serve it plain or with applesauce,” Jennifer recommends.
