Today’s recipe is ham and cheese omelet. Sometimes my omelets turn into scrambled eggs, I’m sure we’ve all been there – done that. It’s super hard to make a perfect omelet. But the last couple of times I’ve managed to get a great result. The key is low heat, just the right amount of butter, and to use the right amount of eggs in the relations to the size of your frying pan. Another factor is patience – that’s key to a perfect omelet. Out of hundreds of times trying to make an omelet I’ve only succeeded twice. But today I’m hoping and crossing my fingers that I manage to change up the numbers to three times instead of two. But only time will show. either way, I’m never giving up. So if you like me almost always fail to make an omelet, don’t worry you’ll get it right eventually. But the most important thing even when the omelet turns into scrambled eggs is flavor. As long as the flavors are there, it’s at least eatable and it can be pretty darn good as well. So today I’m sharing one of my best omelet recipes. What I really love about omelets is that you can use whatever leftovers you have in the fridge. Ham and cheese is usually what I use, some salt, pepper and chili and I’m good to go!
But you can use whatever you have, parma ham, parmesan, all kinds of vegetables. Use whatever you like and with the right amount of seasoning. Today’s recipe is just a guideline really, you can use whatever ingredients you love and like.
How to make Hetty’s Ham and Cheese omelet:
4 TBS of water
Cheese ( I used a mix of cheddar and mozzarella)
110 g Sliced ham in dices.
Red chili flakes
How to make Hetty’s Ham and Cheese Omelet:
- Gently whisk together 4 eggs and 4 TBS of water. Season with salt, pepper, and chili flakes.
- Add some butter into a frying pan on medium-high heat. When the butter has melted add in the egg mixture and turn down the heat to low/medium heat. Gently push the eggs around the pan for the first 10 seconds. Then let it be in the pan until you see it’s started to cook.
- Use a spatula to gently make sure it doesn’t burn, push it under around the omelet.
- When it looks remotely done, add in the ham and the cheese let it rest for about 10 seconds before flipping one side of the omelet over the other. Let it be for another 10-20 seconds before sliding it to a serving plate. Serve the omelet with some pan-fried potatoes, a salad on the side, a slice of toast or mini tomatoes on the side.
I love this recipe, no matter if I mess it up or not it’s super delicous and I really recomend trying it.
