Tasty 150 cal ham & bean omelette

This is an exercise in portion control; you don’t have to eat something dull and ‘virtuous’ if you don’t mind scaling down the quantities. A tasty little breakfast that, at only 150 calories, gets you ahead of the game early in the day. With a black coffee and a glass of sparkling water chaser, I find this is ample to keep me fueled until lunch.

Serves 1


  • 1 large egg (90cal)
  • 1 thin slice of ham, fat removed (20cal)
  • 2 dstspn of baked beans (20cal)
  • 3 gratings of Parmesan – about 5g (20cal)
  • tsp whole-grain mustard
  • salt & pepper
  • spray oil


  1. Put the beans in the smallest pan you have, along with the mustard. Give it a stir and tear in the slice of ham. Put a lid on it and gently warm it through.
  2. Coat a small non-stick frying pan with spray oil and put on a high heat.
  3. Whisk the egg in a bowl and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Pour the egg into the frying pan. With a one egg omelette, there isn’t much opportunity to to do the pulling back of the egg mixture to create folds, so I just let it set, like a pancake. When it starts to set, grate your Parmesan over the top. Now it should be almost cooked through. I prefer to keep the top of my omelettes slightly wet, so I don’t wait for it to be totally cooked. Add the bean mixture to one side of the omelette, and fold the other half over the top.
  5. Serve and eat! The beans should make it juicy enough, so no need to resort to ketchup.
