Wild Rice Mushroom Omelet

 Wild Rice Mushroom Omelet
Since wild rice is plentiful here, I love to create recipes starring that crunchy staple. Pork sausage helps spice up the mild rice flavor in this hearty omelet, which is draped with a silky-smooth cheese sauce. You can easily serve it to guests with little last-minute fuss. —Bonnie Bourdeau
