A simple and delicious breakfast. I was surprised it wasn't already posted here.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Whisk eggs with milk and salt and pepper. Set aside.
  2. Heat large nonstick frying pan with nonstick cooking spray over medium high heat.
  3. Add egg mixture and cook without stirring until only a tiny bit of egg is still wet. Place 2 cheese slices on half of the omelet. Sprinkle ham over the cheese and top with other 2 slices cheese.
  4. Carefully fold over one side of omelet on top of other. Slide out of pan onto plate.

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!
