Ham-and-Cheese Omelet

Havarti, a creamy, buttery-flavored cheese, is a nice update to this traditional omelet.


Makes 2 omelets

Recipe from

Southern Living


6 large eggs
2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Vegetable cooking spray
2 teaspoons butter or margarine, divided
1 cup chopped smoked ham
1/2 cup shredded Havarti cheese
4 (1-ounce) Swiss cheese slices


Whisk together first 4 ingredients.

Melt 1 teaspoon butter in a small nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat, rotating pan to coat bottom evenly.

Add half of egg mixture to skillet. As egg mixture starts to cook, gently lift edges of omelet with a spatula, and tilt pan so uncooked portion flows underneath. Cook 3 minutes or until almost set. Flip omelet over.

Sprinkle 1 side of omelet with half each of ham and cheeses. Fold in half. Cook 1 to 2 minutes or until cheese melts. To make next omelet, repeat with remaining 1 teaspoon butter, egg mixture, ham, and cheeses. Serve immediately.
