Ham and Extra Sharp White Cheddar Omelette

My son has slowly become an egg fan. Lately, he likes them pretty much any way but especially over medium, scrambled, soft boiled, and as omelettes. He asked for an omelette recently so I made him this one with ham and extra sharp white cheddar I found in the fridge. He loved this breakfast and gobbled up every last bite.

Heat a skillet coated in cooking spray over medium low and turn the broiler on in your oven. Crack two eggs into a bowl, add the milk, and whisk until well blended; season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste. Pour the egg mixture into the skillet and swirl so the pan is evenly coated with egg.

Once your egg is starting to set, sprinkle the ham on one half then top with the shredded cheese.

Move the skillet to the oven and place on the top rack (don’t put the handle in the oven if it’s not oven safe) and let the broiler cook the top part of the egg, it takes only 20-30 seconds or so. Remove the pan and flip the other part of the egg mixture on top of the ham mixture. Slide onto a plate and serve immediately. Enjoy.

    That is one perfectly cooked omelet! I love omelets, but sometimes struggle to make them on the stove, as the underside can brown before the omelet is done. I love your method of starting it on the stove and finishing it under the broiler! I can’t wait to try this recipe. Thanks, Pam!

    That’s one fancy breakfast! I offer scrambled eggs with a warmed roll, or a waffle. The broiler is too much for me in the morning.

    I’ve never finished an omelet in the oven, I need to give that a shot. I like the extra sharp cheddar, nice touch.
