  1. Place the bacon in a skillet and cook over medium heat until evenly browned and crisp. Remove, and drain on paper towels. When cooled, crumble into small pieces.
  2. Stir the eggs and 1/4 cup Cheddar cheese together in a bowl until blended. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Pour the egg mixture into a skillet over medium heat. When the bottom of the eggs is set, layer with the bacon, ham, and if using, onion, chives, mushrooms, green pepper, jalapeno or hot pepper sauce. . Season with hot pepper sauce, if desired. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 cup Cheddar cheese. Carefully fold one half of the egg mixture over the filling ingredients. Cook until the cheese melts and the bottom is golden; turn and cook the other side until golden. Remove from the heat.
  3. Set two slices of toast on two serving plates, and spread each slice with mayonnaise, if desired. Cut the egg mixture in half, and place one half on each piece of toast. Top each with the remaining toast, cut each omwich in half, and serve immediately.

Wow - I took one look at this and it had my husband's name written all over it! Anything that has ham AND bacon and I just have to make it for him. It had a lot of "optional" ingredients so I left out the things that he doesn't like, of course that means most of the veggies like mushrooms and jalepeno pepper but everything else stayed. I used a toasted steak roll vs. bread because this thing was a little on the large side plus it was getting wrapped in foil and going to work with him. Overall, it got rave reviews from him.

I haven't tried the recipe yet. I'll give it 3 stars cuz it sounds yummy....except for the "1 cup salt and ground black pepper to taste (optional)". I'm hoping that's a typo!!!

I doubled this recipe this morning to feed three, my husband and two boys. I used organic eggs, kept the cheese at a half cup and the cheese I used was 2% sharp cheddar (to cut some of the fat) and I used turkey bacon and thinly sliced turkey ham. I used red bell pepper instead of green (just a personal family preferance) and omitted the jalapeno only because I'm feeding small children. I served this on toasted Dave's Killer Bread and instead of mayo, my husband used homemade salsa and reduced fat sour cream as "glue" to hold his om-wich together. I assume they liked them because five minutes later, nothing was left. Thumbs up!

Used ingredients listed in recipe except for mushrooms (sometimes I use, didn't have any on hand). I made in microwave by melting 1 Tablespoon of butter in a 9" pie plate. I separted the eggs and beat the egg whites until soft peaks formed, then folded in the yolks and poured into pie plate. I cooked in the microwave for about 3 1/2 to 4 minutes. Puffed up beautifully, I then added ingredients on one side of omelet and then folded over. Served with homemade salsa and sour cream. Also sprinkled garlic salt on buttered toast. This is basically the same recipe I use for making filled French omelets. I also use an apple filling or potato/ham filling. Simple recipe which we always enjoy!

It says add a PINCH of salt and pepper. season to taste. use common sense.

I only had the optional fresh mushrooms and chives to include in this but I’m telling you, I don’t know how this sandwich could be improved with the peppers. This was just decadently delicious – maybe it was the ciabatta bread I used for this sandwich that made it extra special, or maybe it was the unique addition, for me anyway, of the mayonnaise and hot sauce. I feel somewhat guilty eating this because of its high fat and calorie content, but I don’t indulge in stuff like this often. My tummy and I are very happy right now. I suspect we WILL be all day.

Made for the Recipe Group ~ excellent jumping off point for a breakfast sandwich. You can alter this in so many ways. I did stay close to the true recipe with only the omittion of chives & ham (didn't have any on hand). I used a red bell pepper as I finished my green one at dinner last night. Next time I will add more jalapeno as I could not taste any heat...and I only used 2 eggs and scaled the rest down by a third as I was the only one eating this, and I served it on a toasted, sprouted grain bagel instead of bread. I only put half the Omwich on the bagel, the other half will be for breakie tomorrow! :) Great idea demz....thanks for the recipe....

Made for Recipe Group. Seriously good stuff! I didn't have any ham, but went ahead and made it anyway. I have made breakfast sandwiches before by just beating everything in with the eggs and scrambling them together in the pan. Makes sense to let the bottom set but by the time that happens they were browning already before the flip part. I flipped and just let it cook long enough to finish cooking the eggs inside. Never thought to put mayo on the bread, I usually add jelly! Thanks for the recipe.
