Beat eggs w/ salt & pepper, return pan to med. heat & drizzle 1 tb. oil over bottom; spread veggies out and pour eggs over. Cook until light brown on bottom and moist on top, lifting edges to let raw egg run underneath. Invert onto oiled plate, add 1 tbl. oil to pan, slide omelet in & cook 1 min. more.

Invert into bread casing & wrap loaf in several layers foil. Keeps warm up to 4 hours or may be reheated 25 - 30 mins in 400 F. oven.

If for a picnic, be sure and pack a sharp knife to cut & serve this with.

If taking to something like a ball game, it can be (very carefully!) pre-cut in wedges on several layers of foil, and then the foil wrapped firmly around it to help it hold its shape.
