Green Eggs and Ham Omelette : LCHF

Green eggs I can hear you say ...
Well you can add a little green to your breakfast favourite with this easy green eggs and ham dish.
It's a speedy and satisfying brunch that packs flavoursome pesto, ham and creamy Edam into a most nutritious omelette.
With the weekend coming, why not give it a try!

Serves Four
8 medium free-range eggs
20g (3/4oz) unsalted butter
1 x 130g tub fresh pesto
240g Wiltshire cured ham, chopped
250g Edam slices, chopped
fresh basil leaves for garnish (optional)

1. Crack 2 eggs into a small bowl, add 30g (1oz) pesto, a little salt and pepper for seasoning and mix thoroughly with a fork.
2. On a medium heat, add 5g (1/4oz) butter to a small 20cm (8in) non-stick frying pan. Once melted add the eggs and using a spatula move the eggs around to slightly scramble. Allow to settle so that the bottom of the pan is covered completely.
3. Add 2 slices of ham and 2 slices of cheese to the pan. Turn the heat to low and allow to cook for 1-2 minutes until the eggs are cooked.
4. Gently slide the omelette onto a plate and fold over in half. Give the pan a wipe with some kitchen paper and repeat the process again to cook the next omelette.
