Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 Tbsp water

  • 3 thin slices deli Sopressata (you can sub in salami or prosciutto if that’s what you have)
  • 6 fresh basil leaves
  • 5 thin slices fresh, ripe tomato

  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Whisk together the eggs and water in a small bowl.

  4. Spread the meat slices on one half of the egg mixture. Top with the cheese, tomatoes, and basil slices. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Cook for about 2 minutes or until the empty half of the egg mixture is firm enough to fold over the ingredients. Use a spatula to gently fold the omelette in half.
