Lancaster County Omelet

3 eggs for normal omelet (or 2 pending preference)
1/4 tea. butter (or spray with Pam)
1 slice ham, cut in half
2 heaping tbsp. grated cheeses of choice (i.e. cheddar and Swiss mix)
1-2 tbl. Corn Relish from the Jam & Jelly Kitchen of Kitchen Kettle Village, Intercourse, PA (800) 732-3538
  1. Lay 1/2 slice of ham on a plate, place corn relish and cheese evenly on top of it. Place in a microwave oven.
  2. Heat oil in omelet pan or spray with Pam.
  3. Beat eggs well to aerate, season with salt and pepper, and pour into pan. As eggs cook, lift edge and let uncooked egg run underneath.
  4. Cook ham/corn relish/cheese for 15 seconds to warm and melt cheese.
  5. Turn egg to cook on other side.
  6. Place ham/corn relish/cheese on half of egg. Cook omelet until done. Fold other half over ham/corn/cheese and slide onto plate.

We often serve with scones, herb seasoned stone ground grits, slice of ham and cut fruit.
