Looded Baked Potato Cheese Omelet Recipe

We were all in the mood for a breakfast supper and this Loaded Baked Potato Cheese Omelet Recipe looked really good. This is a simple recipe that doesn’t require a lot of ingredients and is fairly quick to put together. I think what caught my eye the most about this recipe is that it is finished off in the oven. My worst fear was that it would stick to the pan causing total destruction, but my fears weren’t realized; the omelet slid out of the pan nicely and was a nice golden brown.

You can get as creative as you want with the filling for this recipe as long as you are not adding any liquid – I chose bacon and potatoes because that always seems to work for me. This is a large omelet so I slit one between 2 people. Adapted from Cook’s Country TV Show Cookbook.

Homemade Holiday Eggnog Recipe

With the holiday season coming up I always look forward  to the great sweet treats that follow along with it. One of my favorites is this Homemade Holiday Eggnog Recipe. This recipe is a non alcoholic version, but you can change that real fast if you wish to do so. Just add one teaspoon of Dark Rum per adult serving.

This Homemade Holiday Eggnog Recipe is a very simple recipe; it has very little prep time, but does have to sit quite awhile before serving. The good part is you can make this up ahead of time because it will keep up to 3 weeks in the refrigerator.

In my younger years we used to make this recipe without paying a lot of attention to the temperature.  I think it is a good idea to pay attention to this step, being sure the temp does reach 175F., which will kill any bacteria in the eggs.

If you’re looking for a Holiday Treat, give this Homemade Holiday Eggnog Recipe a try-and enjoy.
