I made the full amount for 3 of us. DH and I took what we wanted and DS finished off the rest with no problem. I used a smaller amount of cheese because it was all I had but I think that it worked just fine with some less. I also used smoked ham in place of the bacon as it was in the fridge and bacon wasn't. 5 star voted from all of us.

This is good and easy to make. I halved the recipe also, baking in a small round dish. The swiss was a bit strong for me, overpowered the eggs a bit, but I think the pepper jack suggestion by Barb would be awesome. Made for Pick A Chef '05! thanks :)

A delicious, yummy, fluffy omelet very easy to make. I cut the recipe in half for the 2 of us, cooked the bacon in microwave, used my hand blender to beat the eggs, milk ,salt & pepper. Then made it like the recipe said. This omelet would be good with any kind of cheese, next time I am going to use Pepper Jack (YUM) as my DH suggested. Ellie, I will be making this again as it is a delicious easy omelet.
