This is a delicious omelet with a little bit of a twist. I promise you will love it as much as my family does.

This is a great recipe for feeding a bunch of hungry visitors in the morning. I do make some changes however. I omit the potatoes & substitute a hashbrown crust on the bottom. I also add broccoli & mushrooms & any other veggies on hand. I did need to cook this for almost an hour & to finish it off I broiled it for a couple of minutes but I also used more eggs. Go crazy & experiment with additional ingredients! Add some dill weed or fresh rosemary for added flavor. Read More

This was my first frittata and it was so pretty and easy to make even the kids could do it! Next time I am putting extra cheese on because I like it to be artery clogging mmmn. Oh! Just a tip: I had to cook it a bit longer (30 minutes) maybe my oven is a bit dodgy? Watch the middle of the pie to see if it's set. Read More

Excellent! Great basic recipe suitable for wide substitution and variation. I didn't have ham so I used cooked bacon; I didn't have red pepper so I used green. I used a big iron skillet and the consistency was wonderful and the pie was easy to cut. I used 7 eggs and cooked it for 25 minutes. It was perfect! Read More

Watching carbs so substituted zucchini for the potato and didn't feel deprived. This is a pretty basic omelet - nothing unusual here - but the sliced tomato which I placed on the omelet just before baking rather than mixing it in really dressed this up. Lots of red and green going on so this would be a nice choice for a festive Chriistmas breakfast. Just salt and pepper is fine but this would benefit from some seasoning to boost the flavor - I added fresh minced garlic and fresh chives. I made a half recipe and baked it in a shallow ceramic baker about 30 minutes. Read More

I suspect there are a few other at-home chefs in the same boat as me: I don't own a cast iron skillet! I know - shame on me! I followed the recipe exactly aside from adding a bit of garlic. Once I got to the point that everything was to go into the skillet and then into the oven I put the veggie/potato/ham mix into a quiche dish poured the eggs over that sprinkled the cheese and then stuck the whole thing in the oven at 375 for about 45 minutes. You'll know it's set if a knife inserted near the center comes out clean! Read More

This was a great meal for dinner but I baked it in a pie shell to make it like a quiche. It is definitely a "keeper" recipe. Read More
