This recipe is named for Poe Dameron, one of the characters in the latest Star Wars trilogy. It’s essentially an omelet on bread, but it’s actually really good!
The peppers and onions are chopped and sauteed in butter, then set aside. Whisked eggs are poured into the same pan, and just as they begin to set the peppers, onions, and chopped ham are sprinkled on top.
The whole thing sits until the eggs are cooked through, at which point the omelet is folded in half and removed from the heat. I actually had to leave mine on the stove a bit longer since there was still a bit of liquid inside.
At this point, the French loaf is sliced, toasted, smeared with butter, and the omelet is added between the two slices. The loaf is then cut in half. I had to alter this a little bit, since my husband bought French “dinner” loaves instead of a regular French loaf, but it was pretty simple – I just cut up the omelet before adding it to the dinner loaves.
Peppers are not a favorite of mine, but even with them there this was really good! My husband loved this and gives it a 10/10.
I always find it slightly challenging to cook an omelet all the way through. I find it takes more cooking than I’d like to get that final layer of uncooked egg to cook. One trick I’ve learned is, while keeping the omelet in place, tilt the pan so that the uncooked egg pours to the side where it will cook faster.
You’ll need bell pepper (red or green), onion, eggs, ham, a French loaf, and butter.
