Did you know? The largest recorded omelette took a team of 55 people 6 hours to make on August 11th, 2012 in Portugal. It weighed more than 14,225 lbs!



  • 4-6 boiled potatoes, cut into small cubes
  • ¼ lb. smoked, cured ham (bacon or sausage would work equally well)
  • ½ lb. fresh asparagus, cut into small pieces
  • ½ cup fresh or frozen green peas
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 tbsp. milk
  • 2 tbsp. chopped chives
  • 1 tsp. butter
  • Grated parmesan (optional)
  • Croissants (optional)


  • Medium pan
  • Small mixing bowl
  • Stovetop



1. Cut the ham into small, bite-sized pieces. Cook the ham in a medium-size pan at medium high heat until lightly browned.

2. Once browned, add in the butter, potatoes, asparagus and peas. Cook until the veggies are tender.

3. While the veggies are cooking, whisk together the eggs, milk and chives. Add it to the pan. Turn the heat down to low and allow the omelette to solidify, about 10-15 minutes.

4. Cut the omelette into slices and garnish with chives, grated parmesan and a side of croissants. 

5. Enjoy with family and friends!
