Farmer's Omelette

How about making this hearty omelette for a weekend brunch? I enjoy brunch guest, I do as much pre prep as possible so I can relax with our guests and not be overly busy in the kitchen. I pre-cook the potatoes and veggies the day before, add the remaining ingredients the morning of serving. This recipe is very versatile, use the ingredients you have on hand or what you prefer and it will be delish! This recipe makes 2-4 servings depending on the appetites. Serve with muffins  and a fruit salad.
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 2 cups diced uncooked potatoes
  • 1/4 cup finely diced onions
  • 1/4 cup of finely diced peppers (green or red)
  • 1 cup of ham, diced
  • 1/4 cup of finely chopped parsley
  • 6 eggs
  • salt and pepper to taste (I omit the salt)
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/2 cups of low fat shredded cheese
  • 1 seeded and diced tomato
  1. Pre heat your skillet first, then add a bit of oil.
  2. Add the potatoes, peppers and onion. Cover and cook over a medium heat, stirring occasionally til browned.
  3. Add the cooked ham and cook til lightly browned and warmed through.
  4. Beat the eggs with the milk and parsley.
  5. Pour over the potatoes and ham. Cover and cook on medium low heat until set, lifting the edges occasionally to let the eggs mixture run under and cook evenly. This takes about 8 minutes or so.
  6. Top with the diced tomato, and cheese and cover again until the cheese melts.
Serve with a fresh fruit salad, toast, banana bread or muffins.
