When you are cooking with kids, easy and healthy recipes are key. We’ve covered a bunch of recipes here but it seems like there is always a household favorite. This Easy Omelet Recipe is one that my kids request for breakfast (and Breakfast for Dinner!) all the time. They are kind of big egg recipe fans. I love that it’s so easy. My kids and I made up an omelet one day and had to share the recipe with you.
Easiest Omelet Recipe
This recipe calls for just a few ingredients:
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon butter
1/2 cup diced ham
1/2 cup spinach
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
*The ingredients that we used can be substituted for other items. Use what you’ve got in the house. Other ingredients that can be added or substituted to your omelet include: green peppers, red peppers, sausage, tomatoes, mushrooms, and cooked onions.
I loved seeing my eight year old make this dish. She’s getting so big!
To make the omelet, crack whisk the eggs. Stir in the milk. Add the butter to a large omelet pan. Let the butter melt slightly and then pour in the egg mixture. Let the egg mixture cook for a few minutes and then add the chopped ingredients. Using a wooden spoon, gently lift the edge of the omelet. Cook the eggs/ingredients 3-4 minutes and then, using a spatula, fold one third of the egg toward the inside. Turn the other outer 1/3 toward the inside of the omelet. Allow the omelet to cook 1 minute more.
Carefully slide the omelet out onto a plate.
