Rainbow Omelette - delicious and nutritious

Following on from my recent post 'Do We Know Who Invented The Omelette?', which you can read here today I share this colourful rainbow omelette. It makes such an easy lunch and can be enjoyed by all ages, and I know many children/grandchildren enjoy this too. The red pepper gives it a nice crunch, simply serve with salad on the side ... delicious and nutritious ๐Ÿ˜‹


Ingredients
Serves Two (amend recipe as necessary)
4 eggs, lightly beaten
½ red pepper, finely chopped
100g frozen sweetcorn
2 tsp oil
2 slices cooked ham, roughly chopped
125g salad of your choice
6 cherry tomatoes, halved
1 tbsp balsamic dressing
Method
1. Beat the eggs, pepper and sweetcorn together until evenly combined.
2. Heat 1 tsp oil in a non-stick frying pan. Add half the egg mix to the pan, fry for 2-3 mins on each side until the egg has set, then slide onto a plate, fill with the ham and fold over. Repeat with the remaining ingredients.
3. Serve with the salad, tomatoes drizzled with the dressing.

Yum. Though I prefer my capsicum raw and would skip the ham.

We often eat omelettes for an easy supper. Whatever is in the refrigerator veggie wise goes into our omelette. And I always add cheese!
