Mother's Day Omelet

My hubby Tony makes THE BEST omelet's in the world!!  And I almost always get one in bed for Mother's Day...so I'm looking forward to it tomorrow!!:)  Anyway, I made him go through the ingredients and steps with me so you could all try them. 

Here's an idea for all you mother's out there.  Print out the recipe and place it somewhere your hubby will see it...maybe he'll get the hint???  Or just make it yourself...either way you won't be disappointed!

Mother's Day Omelet
(this picture makes me salivate...so yummy!)
3 eggs
1 Tablespoon canned diced green chillies
1/3 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon oil

1/2 of a small red onion, chopped
1/2 of a green pepper, chopped
Fully cooked ham, chopped
 (or breakfast meat of your choice...bacon & sausage work well too!)
Cheese (Tony likes to use Kraft cheddar singles & swiss, but you can use whatever cheese you like)

Heat the 1 teaspoon of oil in a small frying pan over medium heat.  Add the onion and peppers and cook for about 5 minutes or until they are tender.  Add the ham and heat through.  Set aside.

Warm up another small frying pan over medium heat.  Spray with cooking spray so your egg won't stick!  Put the eggs in a small (2 cup size) pourable measuring cup and whisk until all mixed.  Add the green chillies and the salt and pepper and mix until combined.  Pour egg mixture into your frying pan and cook for about 3 minutes or until the bottom is lightly browned.  Now for the tricky part!  (This is the only step Tony lets me help him with because he's not the best flipper!)  Grab a wide spatula and work your way around the omelet losening up all the edges and underneath.  Slide the spatula under the omelet and carefully flip!  If it doesn't quite make it that's alright, it may not look the best but it will still taste great!

While the other side is cooking, take one slice of each kind of cheese you want and cut it in half.  Place the cheeses on one half of you omelet.  Place a few Tablespoons of your onion, pepper, ham mixture on top of the cheese (still on only half of your omelet).  Now take your spatula and fold the side that doesn't have anything on it over top the other side.  Remove from the pan onto a plate. 

 Add some toast & a glass of orange juice and you've got an excellent Mother's Day breakfast!!
