Mushroom and Ham Omelet

Recently I have been a tad nauseous all for a good reason (expecting baby number 2), but slowly feeling better :-), so I have had a few easy meals and not cooking quite as much. Heres a wonderfully simple and tasty meal. A simple mushroom and ham omelet with salad. 


  • 3 eggs
  • a little milk
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • a little butter
  • about 10 mushrooms sliced
  • 3 slices of ham diced
  • a handful of mixed greens
  • a few sliced cherry tomatoes
  • oil and vinegar to drizzle over the salad
  • a little feta cheese for the salad

  1. saute the mushrooms with butter until soft 
  2. meanwhile mix eggs with milk salt and pepper, then add to the hot pan with the mushrooms
  3. turn pan to move eggs to edge to cook then leave on medium heat for a few minutes until cooked add chopped ham and fold over
  4. serve with a salad and bread and enjoy :-)
I always have fond memories of this omelet as my Dad makes great mushroom omelets :-)

What is your favorite omelet?

  1. That looks so good, Rebecca. I love simple dishes like this and it looks so healthy too.

    Now, onto that nausea...Hmmm...

    I sure do hope you are feeling well now. Take care!

    Best wishes always,

  2. Hmm...wonder why...? Guess the little one is reminding you it's gotta eat! Looks yum.

  3. oh are you pregnant again? congratulations! i'm a new reader so i'm still trying to get caught up. this is such a healthy, simple breakfast. hope your nausea doesn't stay for too long. i love vegetarian omelets with LOTS of cheese :-P

  4. Simply love that combination Rebecca.

  5. Funny, I made an omelet yesterday. I made a spinach omelet and then I diced avocado on it after I took it out of the pan, added a little hot sauce and I was so satisfied. I hope you feel better soon. In the mean time, if you can do eggs, you're ok.

  6. I love the idea of eating simply. Now about the nausea....hope you'll be sharing some good news with us soon.

  7. Hope the nausea subsides soon! Omelets are delicious and I really, really need to make them more often!

  8. I hope you feel better soon. it will pass and then you will enjoy that belly growing.

    HAve a great week!

  9. Funny you should post and ask about favorite omelet. I am planning for omelets for dinner this week and it is my favorite which is a black bean chili omelet. I think that is the only time I go a little overboard on protein.

  10. Hope you're feeling better! I love omelets, great way to add lots of fun ingredients to some simple eggs :) I also love eating eggs for dinner sometimes! Why not?

  24. Oooh! This looks sooo good. I love eggs no matter how they're cooked - except hard boiled. This looks delicious I'd happily have it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Though I might replace the ham because I don't eat it :)

    Congratulations, great news. I wish you all the best and take care ♥

  26. Eggs are perfect for when you don't know what to make...they are always delicious. Great omelet.

  27. Hi Rebecca-First off, I would like to congratulate you on Baby #2. Do take care of yourself, and take things slow! So, happy for your new family addition!
    Your simple ham omelet looks so inviting and absolutely delicious.
    I too make a nice omelet on the evenings when I just don't feel like cooking, or eating leftovers.
    BTW-I have an award waiting for you. Just stop my my blog, and find your name on the list. No rules applied...just was thinking about you, and wanted to share my award with you.

  32. Aww, congrats! How exciting! How far along are you? You might have said somewhere else in the blog.
    I have to tell you so you don't think I copied you- I ate something that looked just like this and took a picture for the blog- egg scramble with mushrooms, spinach, feta, topped with arugula and wheat crostini on the side. Too funny. Hope that nausea passes soon!
