Rach's 3 Minute Meal: Cubano Omelet


  • 1 pat butter

  • 2 large eggs

  • A squirt of yellow mustard

  • Salt and pepper

  • 1 slice cooked ham or 2 thin deli slices of pork tenderloin

  • A handful (about 1/3 cup) shredded Swiss cheese

  • 4 to 5 dill pickle slices, sliced crosswise

  • Plantain chips or potato chips, for serving

  • Step 1

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