Jarlsberg Oven Omelet

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Gail Stines

Found this recipe in the Food Section in the Chronicle newspaper quite awhile ago. This dish is supposedly adapted from "Omelettes, Souffles & Frittatas", (Chronicle Books 1999). NOTE: I always make this omelet with Ham instead of Proscuitto, and always, always use Gruyere cheese. Very easy dish to prepare, and tastes wonderful.

Very easy and great tasting. I used Gouda and it came out with a nice soft flavor.
