Make your mom breakfast in bed for Mother's Day

  • Yield: 1
Country Ham And Cheddar Omelet

Ingredients

  • 3 eggs
  • Pinch salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 2 teaspoons unsalted butter
  • 1 breakfast slice country ham (1/2 ounce), diced
  • 1 tablespoon chopped green onions, plus more for garnish
  • 2 tablespoons shredded mild cheddar

Directions

  • In a medium bowl or the jar of a blender, whisk together or blend eggs, salt, pepper, cayenne, and heavy cream until well blended and frothy.

  • In a small nonstick skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add ham and cook until browned, 1 to 2 minutes. Add egg mixture and stir lightly until just set on bottom, about 30 seconds. Sprinkle green onions across omelet and continue to cook for 30 seconds to 1 minute, shaking pan to loosen the eggs around edges.

  • When eggs are nearly completely set but still slightly soft, sprinkle cheese over top. Hold the pan in one hand and, with a flick of the wrist, flip omelet, then fold one-third toward center. Turn omelet out onto a plate, folding it over onto itself into thirds. Garnish with additional chopped green onions if desired and serve immediately.
