Savory Omelet Cups

 Savory Omelet Cups
I replaced the pastry portion of this recipe with a light crepe-like cup. Baked in tiny oven-proof dishes, they're filled with cheese, leeks, scallions, olives and sun-dried tomatoes. My son, a vegetarian, always asks for them. —Joan Churchill of Dover, New Hampshire
