Open-Faced Omelet Recipe

This tasty breakfast dish is a snap to make with convenient frozen hash browns. It gets its colorful look and fresh flavor from broccoli, red pepper and green onions. I take this egg dish to all of our church brunches and bring home an empty skillet every time. -Cynthia Hinkle, Front Royal, Virginia

"I prepared this dish this morning and it was an instant hit. I had all the ingredients except the broccoli so I left it out. I downsized the recipe slightly for just my husband and myself. It is quick and easy and delicious. I will definitely prepare this again. Here is the link to my review and photos:"
