  1. Heat butter in 8-inch omelette pan or skillet over medium-high heat just until butter begins to brown. As butter melts, tilt pan to coat bottom. Cook ham, bell pepper and onion in butter, stirring frequently.

  2. Quickly pour eggs into pan. While sliding pan back and forth rapidly over heat, quickly stir with fork to spread eggs continuously over bottom of pan as they thicken. Let stand over heat a few seconds to lightly brown bottom of omelet. (Do not overcook—omelet will continue to cook after folding.)

  3. Tilt pan and run spatula under edge of omelette, then jerk pan sharply to loosen eggs from bottom of pan. Fold portion of omelette nearest you just to center. (Allow for portion of omelette to slide up side of pan.) Turn omelette onto warm plate, flipping folded portion of omelette over so it rolls over the bottom. Tuck sides of omelet under if necessary.

  4. Serves
