I also really appreciated the detailed instructions! This was my very first attempt at an omelet and I still had trouble with the folding part, but managed to tuck it all in to where it still looked pretty from the top! I cut the recipe in half for DH and he loved and raved and requested it be put into my regular weekend breakfast rotation! Other bonus, I felt really proud of myself for how well this turned out! Thanks a bunch!

I am so glad you pasted this. Omelets are a very tricky thing to make. I love that it calls for american cheese and not cheddar. I am not a fan of cheddar on eggs.

I did some juggling on the ingredient amounts since I wanted an omelet that would serve the 2 of us! I used 4 eggs, 3 tablespoons of milk & 2 slices of cheese but kept the rest of the ingredients the same! Worked our just right & we had a very nice breakfast, thanks to your recipe!

Well my original plan was to have this for breakfast for the DM and myself tomorrow but it ended up as tonights dinner for 3 (and I would have to say better and more economical than takeaway), served with buttered wholemeal/wholegrain toast (used 5 small eggs and about an 1/8 cup of milk but 4 slices of sharp vintage cheddar and 1/2 cup chopped ham - though I think I could have done with a skillet the next size up but next size up would have been way too big and it didn't help that I had to answer the phone just as I had poured the egg into skillet but had to answer and unfortunately it was the sad news we were expecting that DH's aunt had passed away - he is on night shift so will have to let him know when he gets home in the morning). Thank you looneytunesfan (looks like weetbix tomorrow morning :lol:), made for Potluck Tag.

Easy and tasty start to our weekend. My omelette browned too much while waiting for the egg to set (so I am not posting my photos); I used a 10-in omelet pan, which allowed me to turn the cooked egg easily (I normally use this skillet for 6-egg omelettes). For this recipe, it would be necessary to use a 12-in pan to produce a thinner omelet. In my opinion -- I favor low sodium -- no salt should be added in addition to the ham and cheese. I would use extra sharp cheddar cheese next time, but that is personal preference. For the two of us, I would probably use the same amount of ham and cheese, but use 4 eggs and either no milk or only 2 tablespoons milk, and still use my 10-inch skillet. You made me think, looneytunes fan! Made for I Recommend Tag based on 4-H Mom's review.

My family loved this. It was easy for me to throw together. I used shredded Cheddar cheese inplace of the American cheese. Turned out great and I will be making again.

I too, am pretty sorry at making omelets but this was perfect. Ham and cheese are my favorite omelet and when the craving strikes I now have a favorite recipe. I used shredded sharp cheddar cheese instead of American cheese for some extra tang. Scrumptious!

This came out perfect. I had never made an omlet before, so thank you for the detailed instructions. I used sour cream rather than milk, and lowered the temperature to low rather than medium-high, my first one came out too dark on the bottom. My husband and boys were asking for seconds.

Made these for the family for breakfast this morning and they loved them. I am not a great omelet maker, but the great directions really helped me become better at it. My favorite type of omelet! Thanks!
