The first step to making a ham omelette is get a fairly deep bowl and crack and beat the eggs in it. We recommend using 2 eggs per person, but you can increase the amount if you'd like a larger omelette. Add a pinch of salt to the eggs and start to beat them with a fork or an egg beater.

Next, chop the slices of cooked or York ham into small pieces and then add them to the eggs, stirring a bit to mix them together. Now it's time to add a little chopped parsley, if you want to add a touch more flavour to the recipe.


Once you have the egg mixture ready to make your ham omelette, put a small amount of olive oil in a frying pan and let it heat up on the hob. Then pour in the mixture of beaten egg and ham and, when you see that the egg is starting to set, fold the omelette into the desired shape, starting around the edge and moving towards the centre with a spatula.


When the omelette has set sufficiently, you can flip it. It's that easy! In just minutes, your ham omelette will be ready to serve. You can eat it plain or serve it with grated cheese, a salad, mushrooms, etc.
