  • ¼ cup of small diced cooked ham
  • 2 teaspoons unsalted butter
  • ¼ cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • sea salt and cracked pepper to taste


  • In a medium-sized bowl whisk together the eggs, salt, and pepper until completely combined. The yolks should be emulsified with the whites.

  • Add some butter to a non-stick skillet over low heat until melted.
  • Pour in the egg mixture and move the pan back and forth with 1 hand while constantly mixing the eggs with your other hand using a fork or spatula.
  • Cook it until a bottom layer of cooked eggs is formed and it is soft and slightly undercooked on top.
  • Sprinkle on the cheese.
  • Tilt the pan and gently fold the omelette over creating rolled up layers of cheesy eggs.
  • Garnish with optional chopped parsley and chives.



Chef Notes:
  • You have to use a non-stick skillet to make this recipe and preferably it should be 10”.
  • Do not limit yourself to the ham and cheese, once you perfect the technique of making it feel free to add in your favorites vegetables, proteins or cheeses.
  • How to Reheat: To reheat these simply add your desired portion to a pan, cover it with foil and heat it up in the oven at 350° for 4-6 minutes or until hot. In addition, you can heat them in the microwave
  • How to Store: The omelette can be stored in the refrigerator covered in plastic for up to 2 days. This will not freeze well.
