“If you had asked me a month ago I would say "I don't like omelets". But my husband and I came up with this one and it is sooooooo good. You won't be disappointed, I guarantee it. The secret to this being so amazing is to not over-cooking the omelet using the method I outline below. It takes practice, but I make the best omelets now.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In small pan, saute the jalapeno, scallions and ham until jalapenos are soft and ham is slightly browned using non-stick spray, stirring frequently.
  2. Remove from pan & clean pan with paper towel.
  3. Whisk eggs with pepper.
  4. Spray pan with non-stick spray and pour in half the eggs when pan is fully heated to med-high heat.
  5. With a spatula, scrape & lift the cooked egg at the bottom of the pan towards the middle allowing the uncooked egg to get underneath to the hot part of the pan - this may look messy, but it will ensure that your omelet is fluffy.
  6. Once there is no more runny egg, spread out the egg a little bit in the pan as much as possible and add half the cheese on top evenly.
  7. Then add half the ham mixture in a line across the omelet.
  8. Fold omelet in half and allow to cook on one side for 20sec.
  9. Flip over carefully and allow that side to cook for another 20sec.
  10. Repeat directions on cooking omelet for the second one making sure to start with a clean pan.
  11. Can also be made with egg whites only using twice as many eggs.
