This made a delicious brunch this morning. I did make a couple of changes based on ingredients on hand. I went for the ham and it had been eaten. I cooked a couple of slices of chopped bacon in a cast iron skillet, rendered the fat, added in the potatoes, bell peppers, onions and mushrooms. After they had cooked a bit, I poured the beaten eggs over. I did flip the omelet and then topped it off with goat cheese and the parmesan. This was served with sliced tomatoes and homemade gluten-free biscuits. The recipe actually made 4 nice servings.

Peter this is a lovely and smooth tasting omelette. DH was concerned with the cream cheese but I added it anyway and he enjoyed it immensely.I followed directions almost to a T however 2 things, omitted mushrooms, and cooked less than 20 min on low heat. We use propane as there is no natural gas where Ilive so it does cook a bit hotter but 30 min. seemed a bit long. Omelette came out fluffy and high. I did a very short flip over to make sure all egg was cooked les than 30 sec. with the heat off just before plating. DH was quite impressed. This is a 5 star all the way! I will make this again for him on a nice Sunday morning or perhaps for Christmas breakfast when the kids are here. I will probably precook the taters so I can get the omelettes finished quicker as I can only do 1 at a time. Thank you for a lovely recipe. PS This is a filling omelette and I may even use it for a breakfast for dinner meal.

Different style of omelette. I made a couple small changes, increased the ham & mushroom, decreased the cream cheese. Unique & tasty, thanks for sharing.

This was excellent! Even my three year old liked it! I changed things quite a bit to suit our tastes, but this was a great recipe to do that with! I cooked the potato and onion for about 5 min to get it going. I thought 30 min would cook the egg too much. I topped it with the cream cheese as stated and doubled the parmesan. I also added a few spoonfuls of salsa to replace the tomatoes, peppers, and mushrooms. Great VERSATILE recipe! Thank you for the inspiration! (By the way mine cooked through after about 15 min on med. low heat, covered)

The omelette was delicious. The only adjustment I made was to use vegetarian sausage, crumbled, instead of the ham. I doubled the recipe with no problem and it was eaten up fast! Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for ZWT6.

This was great! We actually just finished it with everyone raving. I realized too late that I left out the cream cheese, but it still tasted very nice. It was very filling and I loved the colors in it, too. Thanks for sharing!

This is a great brunch omelet. I cut the recipe back to 2 eggs and have saved half for breakfast tomorrow. Very tasty. Because I cut the recipe back I cooked it a bit differently - I sautedd all the veggies for 3 minutes added the eggs, placed the tomatoes & Parmesan on top(I didn't use any cream cheese) covered with a lid and 5 minutes it was ready. Mmmmm I think 30 minutes would be a long time cooking even with 6 eggs. I cut back on the potatoes and used 4 left over oven fries chopped .. The parsley & sage are a nice addition. Because I sauteed the veggies and didn't remove them and reclean the pan I had a bit of problem taking the omelet out of the pan. Looks a bit messy but tasted heavenly Thanks Peter for a delish Sunday Brunch

I halved the recipe and ended up with a wonderful breakfast this morning. I used frozen shredded hash browns which I cooked first and left covering the bottom of the pan. Then I prepared the egg mixture as written and poured it on top of the potatoes. I used red and orange capsicum, but let out the mushrooms (and inadvertenly left out the tomatoes). Instead of cream cheese, I used Laughing Cow Garlic and Herb cheese. I let it cook on low for about 15 minutes and then put a lid on it and cooked it for an additional 5 - 7 minutes. It turned out perfectly. The bottom wasn't too browned and had a nice potato crust. Made for ZWT5.

I made this exactly as written, which produced a tasty omelette; however, I found the bottom became too overcooked for my liking. I did end up flipping it at the end, for thorough cooking. The ingredients are really nice, and I would try this as a frittata or a more traditional omelette next time. Made for ZWT5.

This was really, really good! I served it as a dinner with Texas Angel Biscuits - OAMC - Drop or Roll Out and some salsa. Just wonderful. I did make quite a few changes: Omitted the sage, added fresh basil, cut the cream cheese back, fried the mushrooms and added them to the potato mix. Also used a bit of bacon instead of ham. The kids loved it, too! Made for ZWT5
