    This looked really good and I did make it. Way too much oil for my taste. I will probably make it again using less oil.

    A quick and delicious breakfast recipe! The cream cheese reminded me of eating bagels so much that I turned this into a bagel breakfast sandwich - just added a piece of ham. So tasty!

    Simple, easy and taste great as is, but also a great base to add other ingredients, especially vegetables - broccoli, spinach, mushrooms, . This is a summertime staple, quick, easy supper for busy summertime weeknights.

    SO good! As one other reviewer said, I added spinach. With or without, this is a regular now!

    Great recipe! I used some freshly cooked spinach and scallions. What is really great about this recipe is the instructions. This is the first omelet I every made that tastes like the omelets served by good restaurants! While the recipe makes a very large omelet, it can be easily changed to a one serving recipe just by cutting the ingredients in half.

    Better than cream cheese on a bagel. YUM
