Ham and Cheese Omelet
Don here, telling you about my Ham and Cheese Omelet. If you’ve been browsing Recipe Idea Shop for while, you’ll see we are big fans of omelets. I think that’s because they are so quick to fix at the spur of the moment.
I usually just open the refrigerator and take out what looks good. This one is a standby for us when we have left-over ham. I leave the cheese out for Lois, but when she’s not around, I love Swiss, cheddar, mozzarella, gouda, any kind. She loves cheese too, but she can’t eat it. So I support her diet restrictions and leave it out of mine when she’s around, too.
What You Need
For this recipe, you need a knife, cutting board, sauté pan, a whisk, measuring cups and spoons. Whatever you buy, get the best you can afford and you’ll never be sorry.
