great but isn't this too much sodium and potassium and protein? Moderator comment: Considering the calorie value and ingredients, no becouse if you add some bread and a beverage it makes a meal that is still in the kidney-friendly range. If you need lower protein you can reduce the eggs to 2 insead of 3.

We loved it! First time I read this recipe my husband crinkled his nose but had agreed it's a keeper. We used egg substitute and PAM spray & made it a scramble vs. on omelet in the oven.

This was absolutely delicious! I eliminated putting it in the oven by lifting the edges and letting the uncooked egg run into the pan. Next time I will try using swiss cheese and perhaps substitute a pear for the apple just for variety.
