  • Rec/Rev/Photos: Open-Faced Omelet

    I was browsing through some old TOH magazines (actually looking for a squash recipe) when I happened upon this Opened-Faced Omelet. It was in the TOH Holiday Recipe Card Collection for 2002 on page 43. As I glanced at the ingredients I realized I had nearly all the ingredients, many left over from recent recipes. What a great way to use up these extra ingredients. The only ingredient I did not have was the broccoli so I left it out.  I cut the recipe down just a little for only  DH and me. This was delicious and DH proclaimed it a keeper. In addition, it was very easy and quick to prepare. We will be having this breakfast again.

    Here is the recipe and my pictures. Hope you enjoy it.

    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
