    CaliforniaJan's Note:

    Norway's Jarlsberg cheese, with its smooth, nutty flavor, pairs perfectly with leftover ham in this quick and easy oven-baked omelette. It tastes just as delicious with light Jarlsberg if you are interested in trimming the fat. And, when I make it, I use a combination of whole eggs and Egg Beaters to further cut calories.

      This is such an easy, beautiful omelette! I used all eggs and the crumbled fried bacon. I cut the recipe in half and it was simply delicious. Next time, I may try adding some fresh shroooms and fresh herbs as well, I see all sorts of possibilities here. Thanks for posting Jan. Made for ZWT 6.
