How To Make a Ham and Cheese Omelet
This is a great way to use some leftover smoked ham. If you want to check that recipe out, you can see it here. You will need some ham, I used smoked provolone cheese and some pickled and sliced jalapenos. You will also need 3 eggs for this, as it will be for a serving of one but one taste of this and everyone will want a smoked ham and cheese omelet!
Start off by dicing the ham, cheese and jalapenos. While you are doing that, warm up your pan, I used a cast iron skillet for this recipe. Add a little bit of cooking spray or olive oil to the skillet so the eggs and cheese do not stick. This should only take a few minutes before we are cooking. You will want to cook this ham and cheese omelet in the skillet over medium heat.
After having diced everything, the skillet should be warmed and ready to start cooking. Crack your 3 eggs, and mix in a bowl. I know some like to add milk to their eggs, in this recipe, I do not and will just cook the eggs after having whisked them. When the eggs are whisked put them off to the side. We are first going to add the ham and jalapenos for cook them for 1-2 minutes, give them an opportunity to cook before the eggs go in. After about a minute or two, you are going to add in the eggs.
When you start to see the eggs bubble a bit add the cheese and then fold the omelet in half. After another 2 minutes or so, flip the omelet over. You will cook it another 2-3 minutes after flipping. When cooking omelets it is a fine line between the eggs not being too runny but the omelet not getting dried out. Don’t confuse a runny omelet with melted cheese either.
As soon as you get to that sweet spot between not too runny or too dried, pull the omelet out of the skillet. From there you can season with some salt and pepper if you would like. I added some more jalapenos to it and enjoy it with a delicious cup of coffee.
