How to Make It

Step 1

Combine first 4 ingredients in a medium bowl, stirring with a whisk.

Step 3

Return pan to medium-high heat. Add 1 teaspoon oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add half of egg mixture to pan, tilting pan to spread evenly; cook 1 minute or until edges begin to set. Lift edge of omelet with a rubber spatula, tilting pan to roll uncooked egg mixture onto bottom of pan. Repeat procedure on opposite edge of omelet. Cook 1 minute or until center is just set. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons cheese evenly over omelet. Sprinkle half of vegetable mixture over cheese. Run spatula around edges and under omelet to loosen it from pan; fold in half.

Who doesn't like a good omelet for dinner from time to time?  Tonight, we had these.  The whole family loved it.  Sliced watermelon on the side.  Would make again for breakfast or dinner.  My cook time is more like 2 minutes on medium-high before adding the veggies/cheese and then another 2 minutes after the flip over on medium.  Perfect.

I enjoyed this omelet! The ham mixed really well with the peppers and onion! I will be making it again. I made some simple hash browns for the side. Even good for dinner too!

This is a good omelet. I added chopped kale to boost the nutritional value, and used cheddar as I had no Swiss. This recipe can be tweaked with whatever add-ins you like.
