  • 2 knobs unsalted butter
  • 1 tsp finely, freshly grated Parmesan (or vegetarian alternative)

French Omelet with Ham and Cheese

 

This basic french omelet recipe will be a favorite with the kids. What child does not like ham and cheese.Ingredients

  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon of water
  • 2 teaspoons of butter
  • 1 tablespoon of fresh chives, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon of fresh basil leaves, chopped
  • ham, diced in cubes
  • cheese, grated

Cooking Instructions

Combine the eggs and water into a medium mixing bowl. Use a fork to whisk the ingredients until the egg yolks and whites are mixed thoroughly.

Heat a medium size frying pan over high heat for a short while. Add the butter to the pan. It should sizzle and foam if the pan is hot enough. Swirl the pan so the butter evenly coats the base. Do not allow the butter to burn and get brown.

Pour egg mixture into hot pan. The egg will begin to solidify around the edges of the pan almost straight away. Use a wooden spoon to pull the edges of omelette so the uncooked egg can run to the sides and cook properly. You will know when the omelette is cooked when the egg no longer runs freely. The omelette will be lightly browned underneath.

Spoon the filling (ham and cheese) over one side of the omelet. Use egg slide to fold the other side of the omelet covering filling, and slide onto serving plate.

Serve the french omelette immediately with some herbs as garnish.

  • 1 1/2 ounce(s) turkey ham, cut into 1/4-inch cubes (1/4 cup)
  • 1 tablespoon(s) chopped flat-leaf parsley

Directions:

  1. Squeeze spinach to remove any excess water. Blend eggs with a fork in a medium bowl. Add feta, scallions, dill, pepper and the spinach; mix gently with a rubber spatula.
  2. Set a rack about 4 inches from the heat source; preheat the broiler.
  3. Heat oil in a 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat. Pour in the egg mixture and tilt to distribute evenly.

Directions:

  1. Chop tomatoes. Crumble feta cheese. Thinly slice spinach leaves.
  2. Preheat oven to 200 degrees F. Place 4 dinner plates in oven to warm. In medium bowl, place eggs, water, salt, and black pepper. With fork, beat 25 to 30 quick strokes to blend mixture without making it fluffy. (Overbeating toughens the proteins in the whites.)
  3. In 8-inch nonstick skillet, melt 1 1/2 teaspoons margarine on medium. When margarine stops sizzling, pour or ladle 1/2 cup egg mixture into skillet.
  4. After egg mixture begins to set around edges, about 25 to 30 seconds, with heat-safe spatula, carefully push cooked egg from side of skillet toward center, so uncooked egg can reach bottom of hot skillet. Repeat 8 to 10 times around skillet, tilting as necessary, 1 to 1 1/2 minutes.
  5. Cook until omelet is almost set but still creamy and moist on top. Place skillet handle facing you, and layer one-fourth of crumbled feta, spinach leaves, and chopped tomatoes over half of each omelet.
  6. With spatula, fold unfilled half over filling.
  7. Shake pan gently to loosen any egg or filling from edge, then slide omelet to edge of skillet. Holding skillet above warm plate, tip skillet so omelet slides onto plate. Keep warm in oven. Repeat with remaining margarine, egg mixture, tomatoes, spinach, and feta to make 4 omelets in all. Serve with toast and a mixed greens salad with balsamic vinaigrette if you like.

Cook's Tip

If you prefer eggs very firmly set in center, invert omelet in skillet just before topping with remaining ingredients. Or, simply cover skillet with lid and cook to desired firmness before topping.
