  • 2 Tablespoon butter
  • 1/3 cup cooked ham diced
  • 1/4 cup onion diced
  • 1/2 cup green bell pepper diced
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 Tablespoon milk any variety
  • 1/3 cup cheddar cheese shredded


  • Place 1 Tablespoon of butter in a skillet over medium heat.
  • Once butter is melted, add the ham and cook until lightly browned, about 3-4 minutes.
  • Add the diced onion and peppers and continue to cook until onions are translucent, about 3 minutes.
  • Season the veggies and ham before removing to a clean plate.
  • Wipe out the skillet and add the remaining butter.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk for 1 minute until light and frothy.
  • Once the butter is melted, pour in the egg mixture.
  • As the eggs cook, use a spatula to clean the edges of the eggs of the omelet. Jiggle the pan around to evenly distribute the eggs and ensure they cook fully.
  • Once the egg is no longer liquid, but still soft, sprinkle on the shredded cheese and place a large lid over the skillet to encourage the cheese to melt, about 1 minute.
  • Scoop the vegetables and ham mixture onto half of the omelet and then use a spatula to fold the empty half of the omelet overtop.
  • Continue to cook until omelette is well-browned on both sides, as desired.
