Open-Faced Omelet

This tasty breakfast dish is a snap to make with convenient frozen hash browns. It gets its colorful look and fresh flavor from broccoli, red pepper and green onions. I take this egg dish to all of our church brunches and bring home an empty skillet every time. -Cynthia Hinkle, Front Royal, Virginia
