Denver Omelette with Whole Wheat Toast
Omelets are a delicious way to start the day. This omelette recipe has a little of everything, making it a great way to start the morning before a fun day of golfing.

You will need:
butter or olive oil or vegetable oil
1 small red bell pepper, seeded and diced
1 small green bell pepper, seeded and diced
1 small onion, diced
1 1/2 cups ham, diced
5 large eggs
1 tbsp milk
3/4 cup shredded cheese, cheddar or jack

Start by heating the butter or oil in a skillet over medium-high. When the butter is warm, add the onion and peppers. Cook for approximately 5 minutes, stir occasionally, you will be ready to move to the next step when the onions are soft. Next, add the ham, continue to stir, until the onions just start to brown. Set aside, keeping warm for a few minutes, this will be the filling to you omelette.

After the filling is prepped, you need to prepare the egg mixture. If you want to make this process evening easier, you can instead make a scramble, using only the filling and the eggs, you will not need the milk if you are making a scramble. Then simply top with the cheese and serve. If you do want to make the omelette, you won't have to do much more work than making an omelette.

Beat the eggs with the milk. You can beat the eggs well, or you can beat them likely. Personally I prefer to leave out the milk and only lightly beat the eggs together. This recipe makes two omelets, so when cooking the omelette be sure to divide the eggs evenly into two batches. When the eggs are ready, heat some butter or vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat, when it is warm, pour the eggs into the skillet. Cook over medium heat for a couple of seconds, when the edges are beginning to set. Then stir the eggs lightly, so that more surface is cooked, be sure to stir in  circular motion, so that the roundness of the omelette is not damaged. Continue cooking until the whole omelette is set, but not overcooked.

Once the omelette is ready, sprinkle 3/4 of the cheese evenly over the eggs. When the cheese is just starting to melt, add half of the filling to one half of the omelette. Fold the empty side of the omelette over, to cover the filling. Cook for only a few seconds longer and serve immediately with whole wheat toast and jam.

Learning to flip omelets is difficult and can take plenty of practice. Don't get discouraged if your first attempt at making an omelette doesn't look perfect, just continue trying. Always remember that if you use good ingredients and follow the recipe, even if the food doesn't look perfect it is likely that it will terse delicious.
