I came up with this delicious and filling omelet for my husband and daughters, who think breakfast is the best meal of the day. I love to cook and had the best teacher around....my mom!


  • 1 medium green pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped fully cooked ham
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 can (4 ounces) sliced mushrooms, drained
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup whole milk
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar or process American cheese


  1. In a 12-in. nonstick skillet, cook green pepper, ham, onion and mushrooms in butter until tender; remove from skillet and set aside. In a bowl, beat eggs with milk, parsley, salt and pepper. Pour into the skillet; cook over medium heat. As eggs set, lift edges, letting uncooked portion flow underneath. When eggs are set, spoon vegetable mixture over half the omelet. Top with half of the cheese. Fold omelet in half over filling. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Cover 1-2 minutes or until cheese melts. Serve on a warm platter.
