"This was fantastic! I used bacon instead of ham and sharp cheddar instead of Swiss but it was delicious! It was worth all the dirty dishes and didn't take long. The omelet was so fluffy! It had a lot more flavor than other omelet rolls I've had."

"I haven't made this in a while, but have made it a few times for special occasion brunches. It is delicious, and quite impressive-looking. It is a bit time consuming to make, though. If I remember correctly, there is a lot of topping left over, so I will probably decrease the amount of the mayo/mustard sauce by at least 1/3 next time."
