Ingredients
  

  • 6 large eggs
  • 1/2 tsp garlic salt
  • dash of pepper
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter divided
  • 1/4 green bell pepper cut into 1/2 inch strips
  • 1/4 red bell pepper cut into 1/2 inch strips
  • 3 oz boiled ham cut the larger piece into 1/2 deiced pieces
  • 1/4 cup Monterrey Jack cheese grated
  • scallions garnish

Instructions
 

  • Add 6 eggs, salt and pepper to a small bowl and beat.
  • Add 1 tbsp butter to a skillet on medium heat. Add peppers and cook for a 3-4 minutes. Add ham and cook for an additional 2 minutes. Pour into a bowl and set aside.
  • Add ½ tbsp butter to the skillet on medium heat and pour 1/3 of the eggs into the skillet and cook for about 1-2 minutes. Smooth over the top of the omelette. Sprinkle on ⅓ of the grated Monterey Jack cheese and ⅓ the veggies over one half of the omelet.
  • Fold the omelette in half with a rubber spatula and cook an additional minute.
  • Repeat for each omelet.
  • Serve with salsa, sour cream or guacamole.
  • NOTE: If you like your eggs well-done, cover the pan with the lid after you've smoothed over the eggs, and let it rest for 30 seconds so they cook longer.
