Directions:

  1. Heat the olive oil over medium heat in a small omelet pan. Use a good non-stick pan that can hold 1 omelet to get the best texture.
  2. Add the eggs, salt, and black pepper to a bowl and beat together.
  3. Add the onion and ham to the pan. Allow to warm and the onions to start to brown around the edges. Remove items from pan and set aside.
  4. Turn the heat up to medium-high and add butter. Once the butter is hot, pour the egg mixture into the pan and allow to cook, without stirring, for 2-3 minutes. Mixing will scramble them you want a good egg base.
  5. Use a flexible spatula, gently go around the edges of the pan to release the egg from the side of the pan, allowing any excess, uncooked egg to fill in that area by tilting the pan to one side. Repeat this until there is hardly any loose, uncooked egg on the top. This usually takes about a minute or two.
  6. Carefully release as much of the bottom of the egg mixture from the pan and flip it carefully. Add back cooked fillings to one side of the omelet and cheese as desired. Fold the other half of the eggs over the cheese. Cook 1 more minute to melt cheese are warm center.
  7. Serve hot with toppings as desired.

  4. Love me a good Western omelet, aka probably the same as a Denver omelet. Loved getting the chef to make one when I was traveling.

      I also like the Country Omelets where they cook the hash browns and then put them in the center with a dollop of sour cream, yum!
