About this Recipe

Great recipe for a traditional western omelet.


6 large eggs
salt and pepper
3 tsp (15 mL) unsalted butter, divided
.25 cup (50 mL) finely diced green bell pepper
.25 cup (50 mL) finely diced red bell pepper
1 (5.5 oz/156 g) can Maple Leaf® Cooked Ham Chunks (drained)
2 green onions, sliced
.25 cup (50 mL) grated cheese


BEAT eggs in a small bowl and season with salt and pepper. Set aside.

HEAT 1 tsp (5 mL) of butter in a small non-stick skillet over medium heat.

ADD peppers and cook for 3 minutes or until tender. Add ham and green onions. Cook for 1 minute. Remove the mixture from the pan and set aside.

MELT 1 tsp (5 mL) butter in the skillet over medium heat. Add ½ of the pepper mixture and ½ of the egg mixture, stirring
with a rubber spatula until the egg begins to set, approximately 1 to 2 minutes. Continue to cook, without stirring, until the egg is almost completely set.

SPRINKLE ½ cheese over the omelet and allow to melt. Gently fold the omelet in half using the rubber spatula and transfer to a warmed plate.

COVER with foil to keep warm. Repeat with second omelet.
