Great for a quick meal with left over ham! Lots of taste.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oven to 400°F.
  2. Heat oil in a non stick frypan, add ham cubes and onions.
  3. Sauté until onions are transparent and just turning brown, about 5 to 7 minutes.
  4. Add red, green and jalapeño peppers, celery and jalapeño jelly, if using.
  5. Sauté 3 to 5 minutes or until jelly melts.
  6. In a large bowl, beat eggs with salt and pepper, until frothy and about double in volume.
  7. Over high heat pour egg mixture evenly over evenly spread sautéed mixture.
  8. Move mixture around just a little.
  9. Place lid on frypan and leave on high heat until bottom is set, being careful not to burn.
  10. Do not remove lid.
  11. Place covered frypan on middle rack in oven and cook approximately 20 minutes, until well risen and golden (I have a see-through lid on my frypan).
  12. Remove lid and sprinkle with cheddar cheese, turn oven to broil, broil for 2 or 3 minutes until cheddar melts.
  13. Slide onto platter and cut into 4 pieces, serve hot with salsa if desired.

Flavors are totally outstanding; I put less Jalapeno in; but used some red pepper jelly that I had. WOW! Made into more of an omelette to keep from using the oven. Delish, Derf. Made for Derf's Cook-a-Thon.

I would give it 5 stars if I hadn't made substitutions to accomodate one of our Katrina evacuees. I more ham and onion and subed mushrooms and leftover pasta for the other veggies and left out the Jalapeno. I also mixed the cheese into it. I was gorgeous and delicious. Thank you.

This was wonderful. I'm in South Beach Diet Phase 1 and this was perfect. I used lowfat cheese on top, and only 1 jalapeno as I was serving to the kids. Used black pepper instead of crushed red. I'll be making this often! Thanks!
