In large nonstick skillet, melt butter over medium heat; cook onion, green pepper and ham, stirring occasionally, until onion is softened and light golden, about 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, whisk together eggs, milk, salt and pepper. Pour into pan; cook, lifting edge occasionally with spatula to allow uncooked mixture to flow underneath, until almost set, about 3 minutes.
Sprinkle with cheese; fold in half and cook until set, about 2 minutes. Cut in half; sandwich each between toast.
This classic warm-you-up stew becomes even more comforting when made with well-marbled pot roast rather than the usual stewing beef. The fat melts slowly as it cooks, tenderizing the beef into juicy melt-in-your-mouth morsels. A slow finish in the oven gives the stew its rich, hearty texture.
