Green Eggs and Ham Omelette

Adding extra leafy greens to your diet is always a good idea—especially on St. Patty’s Day!

Prep Time:
5 min
Cook Time:
10 min


  • 1 cup ( 250 mL ) baby spinach
  • ¼ cup ( 60 mL ) chopped green onion
  • ¼ cup ( 60 mL ) fresh parsley leaves
  • 8 eggs
  • ¼ tsp ( 1.25 mL ) each salt and pepper
  • 4 slices ham


  1. Place spinach, green onion and parsley in food processor. Pulse until very finely chopped. Transfer to bowl. Add eggs, salt and pepper; whisk until combined.
  2. Set an 8-inch (20 cm) non-stick skillet over medium-high heat; coat well with cooking spray. Pour a quarter of egg mixture into hot skillet. As eggs set around edge of skillet, with spatula, gently push cooked portions towards centre. Tilt and rotate skillet to allow uncooked egg to flow into empty spaces.
  3. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes or until set on the bottom but still slightly moist on top; cover half of omelette with one slice of ham. Fold unfilled half of omelette over filled half. Cook for 1 minute and then slide omelette onto plate. Repeat with remaining egg mixture and ham to make four omelettes.


Add thinly sliced Cheddar, Brie or crumbled goat cheese with the ham.
