  • 6 large eggs
  • tbsp (25 milliliters) milk
  • 1 tbsp flat-leaf parsley leaves chopped
  • Small pinch mustard powder
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Handful leftover or packaged cooked ham chopped
  • Handful mature Cheddar cheese grated or cubed
  • Generous tablespoon (about 1/2 ounce) unsalted butter


  • Crack the eggs into a bowl and beat them really well, then add the milk, parsley, and mustard powder. Season with salt and pepper, and mix well. Throw in the ham and Cheddar.

  • Heat the butter in an ovenproof skillet over fairly high heat until it’s fully melted and the pan is very hot. Pour in the egg mixture, pushing the egg away from the sides of the pan using a heatproof spatula. Immediately turn the heat down to medium and let the omelet cook slowly until the bottom half of the omelet is set (about 3 minutes).
  • If you want to fold your omelet, use the spatula to flip 1 side of the omelet over the other to form a half-circle and continue to cook until the omelet is set (about 3 minutes more). If you want to leave your omelet flat, slide the skillet under a preheated broiler or in the oven under the grill setting until the top of the omelet is set (about 3 minutes).
