Ham and Cheese Omelet

A ham and cheese omelet is a breakfast dish made by mixing eggs with diced ham, shredded cheese, salt, and pepper. Cook in a hot, buttered skillet, fold in half, and cook until the eggs are fully set and the cheese is melted.

Ham and Cheese Omelet


  • 2 large eggs

  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil, divided

  • 4 ounces diced ham

  • 1 cup shredded hash browns

  • ¼ cup shredded cheddar cheese


  1. In a large skillet, heat 2/3 of the olive oil on medium-high heat

  2. Add hash browns to the pan when the oil is hot, place in one layer, not a mound, leave alone and let cook, about 5 or 6 minutes on each side.

  3. In a separate pan, add the remaining olive oil and place on medium-high heat to get hot.

  4. Using a spatula, flip the hash browns over to cook the other side.

  5. In a large bowl, crack and whip the two large eggs and pour them into the hot-oiled pan

  6. Using a rubber spatula, move around the pan and bring the outside edge of the omelet into the middle, forcing the runny eggs underneath the cooking eggs.

  7. Once most of the runny egg has been set, make sure the eggs .move around in the pan, flip the omelet over, and turn off the heat.

  8. Add the omelet ingredients and slide the omelet out onto a plate using the pan to fold the egg over the ham and cheese.

Add the hash browns and toast-Enjoy!
