  1. WONDERFUL! I made half the recipe and used fat-free sour cream and cream cheese to lighten it up. I topped it with Polaner strawberry allfruit and it was delicious.Thanks for sharing Mark! Made and enjoyed for PAC Spring '09.
  2. This was sweet and delicious and just took minutes to prepare. The sugar fiends (the kids) did find it a bit too sweet though with the fruit preserves. Next time I'd just use fresh fruit or leave out the preserves entirely. By the way, I never turned over the eggs, I just melted the cream cheese mixture on top of the eggs after it had set and then flipped it halfway over the cheese mixture; it worked out well that way.
  3. WOW! This is a 10-star recipe at least! We had this for a light supper on hot evening and it was fantastic -- absolutely heavenly. I served it with fresh sugared strawberries. Will try with preserves when there is no fresh fruit around. Wasn't sure if it was to be served flat or folded over, but since I associated omelets with folds, I folded it over then spooned fruit on top. I can't rave enough about this recipe!


I was born in Detroit, Michigan and moved to Miami, Florida in 1976. I moved to Franklin, NC at the beginning of 2005 and back to Detroit 12 years later. My "fun" interests include reading (science fiction mostly), movies and television (again, I love sci fi), cooking (and eating it, but need to go on a diet (LOL), collecting 60's music, and watching my children grow. My all time favorite cookbook is the Betty Crocker Home cookbook. I have a great Hungarian cookbook that has all the recipes that I remember from my childhood being prepared by my Grandparents and my Mother.
