Easy Ham and Cheese Omelettes

"Omelettes are not made without breaking eggs." - Maximilien Francois Robespierre

The great thing about omelettes is that you can put just about anything in them that is going bad in your fridge and it will taste great. Chopped tomatoes, stuffing, bacon, sausage, onions, peppers, whatever sounds good to you! My fiance and I have been literally eating ham all week (the one I posted earlier!) so our omelettes tonight are ham and cheese, but feel free to add your own ingredients!

6 eggs
1/3 cup skim milk
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1/3 cup cubed or shredded cooked ham
1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Salt and pepper to taste
2 teaspoon chopped chives
2 tablespoons margarine


Step 1: In a large bowl add eggs, milk, and garlic salt. Whisk for at least 2 minutes.

Step 2: Using a nonstick pan (6-8 inches), heat 1T of the butter on medium heat. When the butter is completely melted, add half the egg mixture to the pan. Let it cook for about 2-3 minutes, then tilt the pan and redistribute any liquid egg mixture that is left for even cooking.

Step 3: Add half the ham, cheddar cheese, and chives to one side of the pan. Carefully fold the omelette in half. Cook for an additional minute, then flip and cook for 30-60 seconds, or until completely cooked. Salt and pepper to taste.

Step 4: Repeat all steps for 2nd omelette.

Serves 2 large omelettes.
