Cheese Onion Ham Luxury Omelette

An omelette need not be ordinary in fact you can elevate the simple ingredients of egg into a luxury meal that you might see an a Michelin star restaurant , I am sure Gorden Ramsey will come knocking at my door soon enough. Previously when I had cooked omelettes I was guilty of adding milk to them all the time which in my mind did take away the richness of the flavour that an omelette can have

  • 5 large free range eggs 
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Herbs of your choice 
  • One onion chopped
  • Red pepper which I roasted separately in the oven 
  • ham hock, shredded (you can use leftovers, or Waitrose sell slow cooked shredded ham hock)
  • Olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Honey
  • 40g soft crumbly cheese ( I used Tunworth cheese which I was kindly given as a gift )
  1. Crack eggs into a mixing bowl and whisk until the eggs are frothy.
  2. Mix in all the ingredients and mix well.
  3. Heat a large non stick pan add in a knob of butter if you're feeling luxurious otherwise just use some oil of your choice.
  4. Pour in the mixture and tilt the pan to make sure an even spread cook on a low flame.
  5. Flip over I tend to hold a plate over and then slide the omelette back into the pan , but before you do that ensure there is enough butter or oil left in the pan.
  6. Cook until the omelette is set .

I should have posted this last year but its been stuck in my blog draft posts and I thought it was time to release into into the wild and now I really want some Tunworth cheese again. It is with the rain I think a comfort food sort of day and Omelette is a comfort food in my opinion.
