Nourish PA for Kids: Microwave Ham-and-Cheese Omelets

A hearty, protein-packed breakfast without having to turn on the oven? Now that’s what we call a great way to start the day! These microwave omelets use the classic combo of ham and cheese and just take a couple of minutes to cook up into a fluffy, savory meal. Serve with toast or an English muffin, or just all on their own!
