Western Omelette

(2 servings)

  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  • 1/4 cup ham - minced
  • 2 Tablespoons onion - chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons green pepper - chopped
Mix eggs slightly. Combine with ham, onion and pepper.

Cook the same as you would any omelette.

Note From Mr Breakfast:

The recipe submitter was a little short on the instructions so here's what to do...

First, melt a Tablespoon of butter in medium frying pan over medium heat and saute the onion and green pepper until tender. Add the ham pieces.

Add the beaten egg. As the egg starts to set, left the edges of the omelette with a spatula so uncooked egg flows under to get cooked. When almost completely set, fold the omelet in half. Turn off the heat. Let the omelette set one minute before serving so the inside cooks through.

If desired, you could place 1/4 cup of shredded cheese over 1/2 of the omelette before folding. Or use 2 overlapping pieces of American cheese for a mid-America greasy spoon diner style Western Omelette.

The classic combination of diced ham, onion and green pepper in a folded omelette. If desired, fill or top with your favorite shredded or sliced cheese.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank baseball27 for this recipe.
