Spinach Ham Omelet Roll-Up Video

5 WWPP Posted by 4 years ago 16 Comments

I really wanted to get one last video in before the Little Bean arrives. This one is pretty long and you don’t have the 5 year old to entertain you. I cook from start to end with no editing and basically blab with you. I’m hoping to up my production value post baby, getting a second camera and better audio but it’s too much to tackle at the moment.

Anyway, as I say in the video, this idea was really born out of my boredom with eggs. Sometimes I need to change up how I make something to get back into it. And I must admit, my interest in eggs has plummeted. They used to be my go to breakfast and I felt good starting the day with some protein. Now I jump right to the cereal and it’s just not as satisfying.

Regardless, this is what I came up with and I must admit, it’s tasty and fun! My favorite combination. ;)

Spinach Ham Omelet Roll-Up VideoHere’s how I made it in the video…

  1. 1-2 slices of deli ham based on thickness
  2. 2 eggs
  3. handful of baby spinach chopped
  4. Kosher Salt and Pepper
  5. cheese or other toppings to taste (optional)

Warm a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Grill the ham, flipping once. Remove the ham from the skillet and set aside.

Meanwhile, crack 2 eggs in a small bowl or mug and whip with a fork.

Lower the heat to medium-low and spray the skillet with non-stick cooking spray.

Add the egg to the skillet and swirl around to cover the bottom of the pan. Sprinkle with a bit of salt and pepper.

Top the cooking egg with the spinach and cover.

Cook for approximately 2-4 minute until egg is no longer runny on top.

Uncover, lay the ham slice on top of the spinach.

Slide a spatula around the edges of the egg. Then slowly take one edge and begin to roll over on itself using a finger to hold it in place.

When finished rolling, cook for an additional 30 seconds to help it seal. Then serve…. with ketchup of course! ;)

    Oh! Bless you! How could you have possibly known that I was crossing to the DARK SIDE and going low carb? This is PERFECT! And you look so darned cute! I love the shirt. Reply

    I'm totally in an egg slump, too and after watching this, I'm putting a new pan on my list so I can make a fun rolled omelet! I used to use a nonstick crepe pan, but it finally wore out after 10 years and the only other egg-worthy pan I have is too small. Thanks for the idea...I never thought of putting a whole slice of ham in there...I always chop it up, but the whole slice looks so pretty. Reply

    Sounds Great Roni! I too am in a breakfast slump and decided to make this today. I used turkey bacon crumbles and egg whites to make my omelet roll up. The additions can be endless! Thanks for the idea! By the way you look great! I hope everything goes smoothly with the birth of your new little bundle of joy! Reply

    Roni this looks awesome, and you are ADORABLE!!!! Like you, I would typically just cut mold off of food and eat the rest, but I saw a news piece that said there can be "roots" that extend beyond where you can see mold, and there can be spores you can't see. It isn't necessarily dangerous for all foods, but for soft porous food, the entire food can be contaiminated... Here is a link to the Food Safety Inspection Service that has a helpful chart about which foods with mold can be trimmed and which (they say) should be discarded: http://www.fsis.usda.gov/factsheets/molds_on_food/#3 Obviously everyone should make their own choice, but I thought you might find this interesting :) Thanks so much for all of the wonderful blogs!

    What an awesome idea! I make my son eggs for breakfast almost every morning and sometimes he gets really tired of scrambled - this is perfect! Thanks for sharing and best wishes for a beautiful birth! :-) Reply

    Looks yum! I don't have much ham these days but I want some! I also recommend my boyfriends 'signature' scrambled eggs. An inch of two of spring/green onion chopped fine, some chopped herbs if you like them, splash of milk, small bit of grated/chopped cheese and a pinch of curry powder (or even cinnamon) in a couple eggs. The spring onion and curry powder really makes it interesting, and it's very quick, especially in the microwave. Reply

    I used your recipe as a guide and have made this several times (most mornings since I saw it). I make it with 1/2 C egg substitute and added 1 T of 2% shredded cheese. It's super yum, and I like to serve it with some sauteed mushrooms on top! Thanks for the great idea!!! Reply

    Hello.. what kind of bread or what is it called please. I would love to do this but I would like to know what to look for in the grocery store. Reply

      I'm sorry, I don't know what you mean. I don't use any bread.

      It looked like Ezekiel 4:9 bread. I think it's usually found in the refrigerated section.

      No bread is used, what you are seeing in the photo is just the egg - it has browned in the pan. :-)
