I made a few changes in this recipe since there were 2 of us & I'm not fond of cooked mushrooms! & added an extra egg to the omelet mixture, & left the other ingredients as given! Then, I added the chopped mushrooms to the onion & ham when there was only about 2 minutes of cooking time left! And, since we each had a very large smoothie to go with the meal, half of the omelet was just right for each of us! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in the Bargain Basement tag game]

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a small nonstick skillet over medium heat, melt the butter.
  2. Add in the mushrooms, green onions, and ham; stir/saute for 5 minutes, until vegetables are tender; set aside.
  3. In a bowl, whisk the eggs, water, salt, and pepper together.
  4. Heat an 8-inch omelet pan over medium heat.
  5. Add in butter and swirl to coat the bottom of the pan.
  6. When the butter foams, pour in the egg mixture all at once.
  7. Let sit until edges begin to cook, about 20 seconds.
  8. With a spatula, gently lift edges of mixture and tip the skillet to let the uncooked egg mixture flow underneath.
  9. Continue to do this until the top is almost dry, 3-4 minutes.
  10. Spoon mushroom-ham mixture over on half of the omelet; sprinkle with grated cheese.
  11. Fold the other side over to cover.
  12. Let stand a few seconds so cheese can melt.
  13. Turn out onto a warmed plate.
