    Caramelized Onion, Ham and Brie Omelets

    Prep Time:
    Cook time:
    Servings: 4


    • extra virgin olive oil: 1 tablespoon
    • sweet onions: 2, thinly sliced
    • kosher salt: ½ teaspoon
    • sugar: 1 teaspoon
    • large eggs: 4, lightly beaten
    • pepper: to taste
    • leftover ham: 1 cup, small diced
    • brie cheese, rind on: 4 oz. sliced


    Step 1: Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the onions and cook, stirring once or twice, until beginning to brown---about 5-10 minutes. Sprinkle with salt and sugar and stir well. Cover, reduce heat to low, and cook for 20-30 minutes until golden brown. Be sure to stir them every few minutes to ensure the onions don't burn.

    Step 2: In a small mixing bowl, whisk the eggs with desired amount salt and pepper until well blended. Meanwhile, heat an 8-inch nonstick skillet over medium-low heat until hot. Spray with cooking oil spray and add 1/4 of the egg mixture. Cook, without disturbing or stirring, until just set---about 4-5 minutes. 

    Step 3: Now it's time to fill the omelet. Pile 1/4 of the ham, 1/4 of the onions, and 1/4 of the brie on one half of the eggs and fold the other half over. Cover and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes, until the cheese is softened. Repeat with remaining ingredients until all have been used.
