Directions:
In a mixing bowl, whisk eggs and cream/sour cream until fluffy. Add salt and pepper.

Add half of the shredded cheese and mix well.

Melt the butter in a frying pan on medium heat; sauté the diced ham, onion and peppers for a few minutes. Add the egg mixture and fry until the omelet is almost firm. Be extra mindful not to burn the edges.

Reduce the heat after a little while. Sprinkle the rest of the cheese on top and fold the omelet.

Serve immediately... and enjoy!

Tip!

Pair with a fresh, green salad. If you like to keep it spicy, serve with Tabasco or Sriracha sauce, or jalepenos on the side. Yes!
