I prepared this for our Sunday breakfast and cannot say enough good things about it. It was easy to prepare but takes several steps. I followed the recipe exactly and we loved this omelet. We will be having this again. Volunteer Field Editor

This is a great low carb diet dessert. I omitted the teaspoon of sugar over the apples and really upped the cinnamon. I also added just a tad of Mexican vanilla to the egg while to give it more flavor. Next time, I will add even more. While I didn't mind the apples still being crunchy, I read one reviewer's suggestion of partially cooking the apples before adding to the pie pan. That would bring out the natural juices more which is a great suggestion.

I made this for my father every Sunday for his last 5 years of life. It was his favorite

This was really good and really fluffed up in the oven. It was light but filling and I enjoyed the tartness of the apples. Next time, I'll try cooking the apples in the cinnamon and sugar to get them a little softer, before putting them in the oven.

Outstanding. I think it should be called a puffy pancake though. My husband won't eat eggs, and he never knew!I used whole wheat pastry flour and Stevia and it was fabulous. Light and guilt free!

My husband and I had this for dinner tonight. We love it so much, I'm going to quadruple the recipe so that we'll have enough for our kids!
