Omelet Roll

In need of a creative brunch idea? How about your favorite omelet toppings wrapped pinwheel style? I used the recommended ingredients from this Taste of Home recipe, but next time plan to adapt the fillings more for my family's preferences. The options are limitless, so get creative and have fun!

4 ounces cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup milk
2 Tbsp flour
1/4 tsp salt
12 eggs

Suggested fillings, but use what YOU like:
2 Tbsp Dijon mustard
2-1/4 cup shredded cheddar or swiss cheese, divided
2 cups finely chopped, fully-cooked ham
1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions

Line the bottom and sides of a greased 15-in x 10- in x 1-in baking pan with parchment paper; grease the paper and set aside. In a small mixing bowl or food processor, beat cream cheese and milk until smooth. Add flour and salt; mix until combined. In a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs until blended. Add cream cheese mixture; mix well. Pour into prepared pan.

Bake at 375 for 30-35 minutes or until eggs are puffed and set. Remove from the oven. Immediately spread with mustard and sprinkle with 1 cup cheese.

Sprinkle with ham, onions and 1 cup cheese. Roll up from a short side, peeling parchment paper away while rolling. Sprinkle top of roll with the remaining cheese; bake 3-4 minutes longer or until cheese is melted.

Yield: 12 servings.

**Unfortunately my egg layer ended up cracking and breaking, so the 'pinwheel' effect is not completely there for the photo. I may try using a larger pan next time to create a thinner layer that will roll better and stay in tact. Just a thought.**
