Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a medium skillet, melt the butter over medium-high heat.

  • In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs and mustard until smooth. Season with salt and pepper.

  • Pour the eggs into the skillet and let them settle.

  • Using a spatula, peel the edges back and let the eggs redistribute in the skillet. Cook for 30 seconds.

  • Top the eggs with the ham and cheese. Cover the pan and cook until the eggs are set and the cheese melts, 1 1/2 to 2 minutes.

  • Arrange the pickles down the center. Using a spatula, fold in the sides of the omelet.

  • Slide the omelet onto a plate and top with the chips and hot sauce.
