Breakfast At The Arthur's

One of my favorite things about coming home to visit my family is the traditional breakfast my dad treats us to on the weekends. He prides himself in his breakfast-making skills and he loves to cook it for us. I promised him that this time while I was home he'd make it onto the blog so here it is! 

My dad is very meticulous about how exactly he prepares his dishes. His famous omelet consists of a blend of a few different cheeses, freshly whipped eggs (no milk added) and ham. This time we happened to have leftover ham in the fridge so he cut some of it into little pieces and placed it in a pan on the stove to keep it warm. For the cheese he used a combination of Tillamook Extra Sharp Cheddar and Hickory Farms Jalapeno & Cheddar Blend that he hand grated himself and combined them together in a bowl. For a regular sized omelet he uses two eggs and for a small omelet (for mother usually) he uses one egg. 

In a medium skillet that is hot he melts a little butter then pours in the eggs and it immediately starts to bubble and cook in the shape of the pan. He adds the cheese and the ham and folds it over three times until it is a perfect rectangle shape. It only takes about 2 - 3 minutes to cook until its perfectly melty and delicious. 

He served it with homemade leftover hash browns and sausage links. Mom and I had coffee and a tall glass orange juice to wash it down, it was UNBELIEVABLE delicious! Enjoy!
