It doesn't really save you that much time. In fact, I can make a 4 egg omelet in a frying pan faster than the time listed to make it in the microwave. Same with sauteing the onions and peppers. 9 minutes in a sauce pan over medium and you get the same result.

I made the filling in the microwave and the eggs on the stove and then I filled the omelets with sauce and shredded Cheddar. I'd do it again. The sauce was easy, fast and fresh.

I don't have a 9-inch microwave-safe pie plate, so I used 2 shallow cereal bowls. Turned out okay, although to be honest I used salsa instead of your homemade sauce. Not as good as regular omelets, but pretty satisfying.

I've been making omelets in the microwave oven for years. They're not as good as the ones I make on the stove, but if you're in a hurry and crave an omelet, it's always satisfying if not necessarily gourmet.
